The Washington Post’s Emerging News Products team has an immediate opening for an Art Director on The Lily. This role requires a well-rounded visual journalist who can design, illustrate and art direct across The Lily’s platforms.

We are looking for someone who understands The Lily’s brand and is excited to design within our established visual voice. This person must be highly organized and able to produce quality work in a fast-paced environment. On any given day, you will be expected to design or illustrate share images for several stories, plan Instagram posts and work on longer-term projects.

Art directors on The Lily work closely with the rest of our team, so a collaborative spirit is a must. For example, you may work with our video editor to create graphics for a series, or our multiplatform editors to design our twice-weekly newsletter, Lily Lines. We are looking for a designer who is excited to contribute ideas. In the past, our designers’ ideas have included a mural for International Women’s Day and a zine for The Lily’s first anniversary.

Ideal candidates will have a portfolio demonstrating a strong use of typography, photo-editing skills, the creation of original illustration and experience directing illustrators.

Interested candidates should send a resume, cover letter explaining your strengths and a PDF portfolio with six examples of recent work to Christopher Meighan (christopher.meighan@washpost.com), Amy King (amy.king@washpost.com) or Tracy Grant (tracy.grant@washpost.com) by Nov. 30. Please use the subject line “THE LILY ART DIRECTOR: YOUR NAME.”
