    Senior designer - Sports

    The Villages Daily Sun, America’s fastest growing daily newspaper, is seeking a seasoned sports designer to define the high-end of what is possible in visual journalism. Join a high-octane team whose work is consistently recognized at the industry level – we've been a finalist for SND's World's Best Designed Newspaper three of the past six years.

    Our sports staff is consistently recognized at the industry level, too – the daily sports section has been named one of the 10 best in the nation each of the past three years by the Associated Press Sports Editors.

    We’re looking for a self-directed newsroom leader who’s comfortable presenting the sports section in a new and sophisticated way. This position is focused on sports, but we produce weekly special projects, several special sections and niche products to which you could also contribute.

    Ours is a newsroom that values experimental thinking and the power of unconventional storytelling. We offer the newshole, print quality, technology (fully Mac) and leadership support that enable good visual journalists to become truly great.

    We’re a 90-mile drive to the beach, Orlando’s theme parks and the historic neighborhoods of Gainesville and St. Augustine. We offer competitive pay, excellent benefits and access to a highly regarded charter school system in one of the state’s most idyllic settings.

    You can see some of our philosophy on our tumblr page: vdailysun.tumblr.com

    Then apply by sending a letter of introduction, a resume and portfolio to the attention of Associate Editor Matthew Fry at matthew.fry@thevillagesmedia.com. And then fill out the online application for the “senior production editor” position at Recruitment

    Not really related to the job posting:

    Around 10 years ago, I applied for a job (I believe a sports designer job, actually) at this newspaper. Didn't hear from them, just let it go. Didn't give it much thought. About two months later, I found a card in the mail from a Villages, Florida address. Rather than sending a rejection email like 99.999% of employers, they sent me a really nicely written card letting me know they moved on with other applicants. Found it endearing, amusing, and annoyingly antiquated all at once.

    Which, to me at least, seems fitting for The Villages' cultural reputation.

    It's Friday, let the traditional snark begin: Will they be needing a special section for the pickleball playoffs?
