Job Opportunity

Pre-Press Graphic Designer

We have an immediate opening in our St. John’s, NL office for a dynamic self-starter who thrives on working in a fast-paced team environment. Be warned: we’re a small but ambitious company with a big attitude: if “good enough” is part of your vocabulary, this is not the job for you.

The successful candidate must be able to command right-brain creativity and left-brain logic with equal dexterity: this person’s time will be divided between layout/design of our print/digital products, and coordinating our production schedule. This means you will work with staff and clients to design creative and engaging content that strengthens brands and reader loyalty. You will also be responsible for liaising with our publishing partner and preparing files for pre-press.

In addition to being a maestro of Adobe Creative Suite, having an acute eye for detail and being determined to produce international-quality magazine design, you also have what it takes to survive the pressures of a regular press deadline… Patience. Positive attitude. Enthusiasm. And an irreverent sense of humour (we probably should have put that first).

The must-haves:

  • A graphic design diploma or degree with advanced knowledge of InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, FTP and cloud-sharing software
  • Minimum of two years pre-press experience
  • Experience designing print and digital products
  • Mastery of typography, colour and layouts
  • Strong knowledge and experience working with Mac and PC platforms
  • Superior time management skills
  • Ability to work independently as well as part of a team
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills

Who will you be working with? Communications Ten Ltd. is the publisher of Atlantic Business Magazine and Natural Resources Magazine. Atlantic Business Magazine is a bi-monthly glossy publication that covers all areas of business within the four Atlantic provinces. Over our 28-year history, we have won 33 Atlantic Journalism Awards, 14 TABBIE international business press awards, 4 KRW national business press awards and placed 36th on a list of the top 95 b2b publications in the world. Natural Resources Magazine, founded in 1998, is a glossy trade magazine published four times a year. It has grown into Atlantic Canada’s most authoritative oil, gas, mining and alternative energy magazine.
