    There is actually a very good reason why I'm posting this job to a sports board. I'll get to that in a second ...

    We're about to launch a redesign of our daily op-ed pages as we continue to explore new ways of redefining print and digital opinion journalism in every visual way we can. We're a very tight, mirthful, supportive team that functions with the agile flexibility of a small newspaper but with the benefits of a major daily.

    Back to the sports board situation: As a veteran of sports design and now op-ed, I'm continually surprised at how similar the sections are: Both are a mix of breaking news and features, long-form storytelling and tidbit presentation, hyper-reality and conceptual storytelling. Oh, but in op-ed the hours are way better.

    I'll attach our official job posting following this. If you're interested, please contact AME design Dan Zedek at Dan.Zedek@globe.com or myself at Heather.Hopp-Bruce@globe.com (I'm the op-ed design supervisor).

    Opinion section designer at The Boston Globe
    We’re looking for a powerful, stylish designer to design our innovative new opinion section, a highly-visual daily spread loaded with attitude in the writing and visuals. As the Opinion designer, you’ll work closely and collaboratively with editors, writers, and columnists and participate in brainstorming all aspects of coverage and presentation. The job is fast-paced, collaborative, and a lot of fun. You should have at least five years design experience, fluency with infographics, and be a close and careful reader. Although primarily a print job, experience creating interactive graphics is a big plus. We’re looking for smart, diverse designers for a smart, diverse city. Send PDFs or links to work samples along with a resume and a letter outlining your interests and experience to Dan Zedek, Assistant Managing Editor/Design.

    Would experience with graphic design be acceptable even if it isn't actual infographics?
