GUARDIAN NEWS AND MEDIA

Join our team at the Guardian and be a part of a diverse and inclusive global organisation that delivers fearless, investigative journalism, and holds power to account. Our team of award-winning journalists, cutting-edge commercial professionals, and industry-leading digital experts are committed to making a difference and represent a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives. We offer a challenging and exciting environment for career development, with a focus on training, growth and fostering an inclusive culture.

We are now looking for a Visual Story Designer (12 month fixed term contract). You will be responsible for designing and developing visual news and feature stories that use graphics, scrollytelling and interactive elements; to bring a fresh perspective to visual stories, ensuring  they look highly appealing to readers wherever they appear, from the largest of retina screens right through to the tiniest of smartphones.

Our award-winning team creates and produces visual journalism around key issues of public interest, from the climate crisis to the cost of living; from  air pollution to elections results; from visual investigations to interactives on the affordability of housing

About the Role

  • Work with reporters and editors to come up with innovative visual treatments and styling for news stories that have a graphics/interactive/spatial focus, for anything from breaking news through to longer-term investigative projects
  • Contribute ideas to how stories can be told in new ways, designing compelling and immersive experiences of our journalism on mobile screens
  • Work with illustrators, other designers, visual editors and graphic artists to design around news graphics, creating styles and page layouts that easily house charts and maps
  • Mock up visual treatments for interactive graphics such as election results or cabinet reshuffles, and design around data visualisation to different breakpoints
  • Design layouts, styles and contribute ideas about how to structure stories, in keeping with the Guardian’s editorial voice

About You

There are several different profiles that would be a good match for this role; while wireframing and experience in full-page digital page layout is essential, we are not expecting a candidate to have all of the different knowledge and experience listed below.

  • Proven experience in wireframing and developing creative page layouts for digital is essential
  • A flare for visual storytelling
  • Experience with responsive design, progressive enhancement, accessibility 
  • Proven graphic and web design experience within a newsroom or journalistic publication (essential); interactive design experience is also highly desirable
  • Experience in UX and UI and how it can enhance the reader experience
  • Experience in data visualisation and design theory
  • Knowledge of front-end web development technologies (HTML, CSS, Javascript) 
  • Experience working with a variety of mixed media assets (video clips, before/after photo sliders, scrolly maps)
  • Experience in motion design
  • Experience with modern web graphics APIs (SVG, Canvas) is desirable
  • A keen ability in image-making with a developed eye for illustration and graphic design
  • Ideally, you’ll have a demonstrable ability to bring a diverse perspective to this role
