Art Editor, The Simple Things
We’re looking for an experienced Art Editor to help create our beautiful and useful lifestyle magazine each month. The Simple Things is an indie mag, published by Iceberg Press, so think tiny budgets and small team, but big ideas and a chance to publish something different from anything else on the newsstand; sales are growing with every issue. You’ll be a print lover, ideally already a fan of The Simple Things and what it stands for, and have the creativity and knowhow to interpret an eclectic range of subjects.
You’ll need the technical confidence to be able to problem-solve, manage pre-press and send the magazine to the printers. Commissioning illustrations is a key part of the job, as is managing a part-time Designer and working with the Editor, Chief Sub, Commissioning Editors, Picture Editor, Publisher and Commercial Director. You’ll need to enjoy being part of the ideas and planning process as well as the production cycle and take on marketing and promotion briefs alongside editorial designs.
The role is based in Iceberg’s London office, which will move to Croydon Old Town in November, working four days a week and we’re looking for someone to start as soon as possible. We’re a close-knit, friendly team, sharing tea and cake and a pride in what we do. If it sounds like you’d fit right in, then drop us a line and your cv to firstname.lastname@example.org before 29 September.
