    When applying, mention you saw this opening listed at JournalismJobs.com.

    This ad does not specifically say sports designer, but there are 1-2 openings on the sports design desk I'm told. The sport section is one of the largest non-metro sections in the country ... typically 10-14 pages daily with tons of inside color. Also they do a slick fan magazine for the University of Arkansas that would allow a designer to build some great portfolios in a short time. The desk just recently broke apart from a larger universal desk in Fort Smith. Copy editors from there have gone on to bigger papers very quickly. Great opportunity for someone who wants to come in and make a big impact with lot of space, lots of design freedoms and a relatively low-pressure environment. This paper's in a battle with the state paper for readership in the exploding Northwest Arkansas market. Sports was APSE honorable mention last year in Sunday section. If you're looking to do great, bold, innovative design work, this may be your place.
