Dockside Publishing Inc.
Location: Gravenhurst, Ontario
Posted: March 5, 2018
Deadline: March 20, 2018
Salary: 19/Hr


Dockside Magazine has an opening for a fourteen-week contract Graphic Designer.
This is a full-time, seasonal job running from April 23rd to approximately July 27th with a possible extension.  You will be asked for a mock layout completion in advance of hire and a portfolio will be requested.
Of course you are a great team player but have the ability to complete the requisite tasks on your own with minimal supervision.
Since you are able to multi-task in a high stress environment you are also detail oriented, a quick learner, organized and disciplined. 


The key responsibilities and competencies are:
  • Graphic design, pagination, prepare and modify various mock-ups.
    Proficiency in Adobe Suite CS6/CC+ (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and Acrobat is required.)
  • Photoshop skills are mandatory: Non-destructive editing, layer masks, image colour/levels/saturation/curves adjustments, extensive cloning/background photo manipulation and working with RAW camera files.
  • InDesign skills are also mandatory: General layout from existing templates, master pages, working with libraries and style sheets as well as proactively pre-flighting files before press.
  • You must have a strong understanding of formatting, typography and pagination.
  • Print experience is preferred but not mandatory.

The position is based in Gravenhurst and we typically work Monday to Friday and at times the hours are long in order to meet strict deadlines.
Please send resume, cover letter - stating you found this job on Jeff Gaulin's Journalism Job Board - and samples to:
