    The Wichita Eagle, Kansas’ largest newspaper, is looking for a sports designer who is as passionate about creative page design as he or she is about sports. The qualified candidate will be a quick learner, highly organized, able to work well on deadline, have first-rate Photoshop skills and energetic ideas for presenting sports news in bold and informative ways.

    You will work closely with the sports department and your fellow page designers to design and produce pages for the Eagle’s print edition, as well as contribute to online design projects, and design and produce non-core publications. You will show excellent news judgment, attention to detail and a commitment to visually bold designs. You will also be committed to growing your skills in a digital environment.

    Candidates must have a four-year college degree in journalism or a related field and at least two years of experience in page design, preferably designing sports.

    The Eagle has an award-winning commitment to design excellence and Wichita is one of the most liveable cities in the Midwest -- good schools, zero traffic, four distinct seasons and some of the lowest housing costs in the country.

    If you're interested in the job, email your cover letter, resume and design samples to Arlice Davenport, Presentation editor, at adavenport@wichitaeagle.com. Attachments in PDF or Word are preferred.
