Do you have a passion for visual journalism and social justice? Think you’re up to the task of creating striking editorial pages for stories about topics like toxic manganese exposure, identical twin prison guards, and the booming immigrant detention industry (an article brilliantly titled “Texas Hold ‘Em”)? Then you might be just the art director that San Francisco-based Mother Jones magazine is seeking.
The art director’s responsibilities include everything from “collaborating with the editors on concept development through the commissioning of illustration and information graphics, working with our photo editor on assignments and photo research, and the design of finished InDesign files.” And because this is Mother Jones, the terms of the job are covered under a collective bargaining agreement with Local 2103, United Automobile, Aerospace, and Agricultural Implement Workers of America, AFL-CIO. We’re not sure what that means, but it sounds like something that will help you stick it to the Man.
