Editorial Designer

  • Job Description:
    Foreign Policy is looking for a versatile designer to join our editorial team and work on our digital platforms and bi-monthly print magazine. This position is based in our Washington, D.C., office.   The ideal candidate has experience working with editors and writers to design and execute editorial experiences that are as compelling and accessible as they are beautiful and content-enhancing. In an average week, you can juggle creating photo illustrations for opinion articles; communicating with and editing photographers and artists around the world; designing mobile-first digital presentations and collaborating with developers to build them; and helping with photo research for the website or department layout for the print magazine.   You should be obsessed with details, up on current news and magazine design trends, an efficient and professional communicator, and able to manage your time effectively. You don't need to be an international relations nerd or have prior experience working at politics or foreign policy publications, but it helps to be a bit of a news junkie and willing to put in the effort to really understand and best tell stories from all over the globe.
  • City: Washington D.C.
  • Region: Mid Atlantic
  • Duration: Full-time
  • About Our Company: Founded in 1970 by Samuel Huntington and Warren Demian Manshel, and now published by the FP Group, a division of Graham Holdings Company, in Washington, D.C., Foreign Policy is the premier, award-winning magazine of global politics, economics, and ideas. Our mission is to explain how the world works — in particular, how the process of globalization is reshaping nations, institutions, cultures, and, more fundamentally, our daily lives. FP is a 2010, 2006, and 2005 nominee and a 2009, 2007, and 2003 winner of the National Magazine Award for General Excellence. The magazine’s readers include some of the most influential leaders in business, government, and other professional arenas throughout the United States and more than 160 other countries. In January 2009, ForeignPolicy.com was relaunched as a vibrant, daily online magazine. Rather than merely complementing the print edition, the site stands on its own as one of the web’s premier destinations for international news and opinion. FP has recruited some of the sharpest writers in international politics to look beyond the day’s headlines to uncover overlooked stories and unique angles.
  • Benefits: Salary commensurate with experience. Foreign Policy offers an attractive benefits package including health and dental insurance, 401(k) with employer contribution and pension plans.
