The Editorial & Publishing team is on the pulse of conversation among our consumers — not just listening, but participating in and starting thoughtful, hilarious, exciting discussions with fans.

  • Working closely with our editorial art directors to curate photos, commission illustrations or create art for assigned editorial stories
  • Designing story visuals for assigned editorial genre.

  • Assisting the team with creating and executing repeatable art formats, managing relationships with our roster of illustrators and finding new illustration talent.

To be successful this person must have/be...
  • A seasoned designer who is versatile in different styles of editorial + digital design
  • An understanding of the world of TV & Film and the entertainment industry and ecosystem we operate as part of.
  • Attuned to the pulse of pop culture, entertainment TV, and movies.

  • Demonstrated history of delivering exceptional creative in a multi-channel environment
  • Innovative and curious to redefine the editorial experience
