Job Description

Arkansas Life, the No. 1 lifestyle publication in The Natural State, is currently looking for a forward-thinking creative director to join its talented, ambitious (and ever-expanding!) team. The ideal candidate is a creative wunderkind who's got the chops to guide the art direction of a sophisticated monthly mag headquartered in the dynamic Southern hub of Little Rock. We're big thinkers, and we're looking for a creative director who both shares that "big" vision and has the experience to put his or her ideas into action.

Our creative director will be responsible for the overall look of the publication from cover to cover, making each issue vibrant, thought-provoking, impossible to put down--and a true reflection of the Arkansas audience it reaches. Working extremely closely with the editorial staff, he or she will ensure that the printed word comes alive on the page for our readers, overseeing the art staff, photographers and illustrators (many of whom are freelancers) through the entire creative process. He or she will be a natural leader, and will effectively lead creative meetings where ideas flow and minds collaborate.

Of course, to bring all this to life, it's imperative that the creative director possess extremely strong typographic and infographic skills, with a proven track record of creating compelling layouts and consistently eye-catching covers. Said creative director will also go gaga over the latest trends in editorial design, and will be the kind of person who keeps a stack of dog-eared glossies on the bedside table. Sound familiar? If so, we can't wait to hear from you.

To Apply

Please send a cover letter, resume and three design samples to with "Creative Director Position" in the subject line.
