Job opp: Designer at Bakersfield Californian

From James Bennett, AME of design and production at The Californian:

DRIVERS WANTED! We need a driver for the racecar we've built. You may have heard of the Californian's controversial redesign. It's loud, flashy and can be tough to handle.

That¹s where you come in!

Our only rules are drawing readers in and respecting their time. Help us re-write the rest of the rules and save American newspapers. We'd be satisfied with a strong, entry-level someone, but a seasoned ace would thrive in our no-holds-barred environment. Our designers also frequently do their own graphics, so graphics knowledge is a BIG plus.

The Californian is a great place to work. The paper is family owned, progressive and very tech-savvy (all Mac newsroom)! We're also a recognized leader in both multi-media reporting and citizen journalism, and we have one of the best photo staffs in the country.

Here's more

Bakersfield is nicer than you think! We have tons of outdoor activities (hiking, kayaking, huge bike trail), kooky local events (from lavish fairs, to dirt track racing). We're surrounded by beautiful mountains and national parks, but we're only a short drive from Los Angeles, San Francisco and world-class beaches.

Please send your clips NOW for this IMMEDIATE opening. Feel free to write or call with questions.
