Layout designers are responsible for the reader’s first impression of the paper and the overall aesthetic identity that The Daily Californian presents.
Layout designers create engaging spreads that integrate stories and visual content effectively and compellingly. Designers work closely with editors and other designers to accurately represent editorial content in a visually appealing way. As such, layout design is a great way to meet and interact with the entire office — from photographers and reporters to editors and illustrators. Great designers are excellent communicators, flexible in their designs, hardworking, creative and open to the paper’s learning-oriented atmosphere. Knowledge of Adobe InDesign is a requirement, and any knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator or web design is a plus.
