GateHouse Media’s Center for News & Design

The biggest, the best. That is what the Center for News & Design is striving to be. 

So what is a place like this, you may ask yourself. Well, that's a good question. GateHouse Media is a publication company that owns over 600 publications across the country. Our Center for News & Design, which is a part of GateHouse, designs for about 245 weekly and daily publications. We the biggest (in terms of publications that are designed here [245], staffing [more than 200 designers], and pages per week [11,000]) and we're quickly becoming the best.

The Dallas Morning News thinks so: we are going to be starting to design their publications this spring!

We've only been around since 2014 so it's a bit much to boast. But we do have some things to brag about for our people:

  • Promotions, career advancement
  • Pay for referrals
  • Creative environment
  • Leadership training and development
  • Monthly team building activities and social events
  • Ping pong
  • Food trucks

Bottom line is this: if you're interested in visual storytelling, strong journalism and page design, this is a great place to begin your career. 

Wanna be a part of this? Got what it takes? Check and see:

  • Use page-design software and centralized front-end system to lay out a steady stream of pages from beginning to end
  • Offer and execute creative solutions to content presentation
  • Provide a final read of all copy submitted for a variety of publications produced by the desks
  • Publish final stories to appropriate websites, following GateHouse Media’s content strategy
  • Work with local editors across the country to continually improve our publications

The designer/copy editor must:

  • Have a dual skill set in both newspaper design and copy editing
  • Be a true multi-tasker able to handle curveballs on hard deadlines
  • Be a true team player, able to interact proactively and productively with dozens of colleagues while helping to build team morale
