The Woroni Art and Design team is set to grow in 2018, with many exciting opportunities available for ANU students interested in all aspects of visual production and graphic design. For the first time, most sub-editors are not required to have experience with the Adobe suite: these skills will be taught throughout the semester, with a view to gradually improving confidence and competence with the software.
In 2018, there will be three different subeditor roles available within the Art and Design portfolio at Woroni, with up to two positions available in each role.
All subeditors will be responsible for laying out a small quota of pages for each Woroni print edition (produced roughly fortnightly over the semester). Each role will then have additional duties, as detailed below.
In addition to laying out a quota of pages each print edition, design subeditors will be responsible for designing and producing various products for Woroni. This may include: graphics for social media; posters; breaking news and news update graphics; branding for Woroni Radio shows; titles for Woroni TV; merchandise graphics; website graphics, and so on. Adobe suite experience preferred, but not essential.
In addition to laying out a quota of pages each print edition, graphics subeditors will be responsible for creating visual media to accompany articles in Woroni’s print edition, as well as occasional ad hoc graphic production for use outside of the print edition. This may include: graphics for social media; poster graphics; branding for Woroni Radio shows; graphics or animations for Woroni TV; merchandise graphics; website graphics, and so on. Applicants should have proven experience in at least one area of visual arts, such as painting, drawing, photography, digital art, collage, etc. Experience with Adobe suite not required.
ART ADMIN SUB-EDITORS
In addition to laying out a quota of pages each print edition, art admin subeditors will work closely with the Art Editor in a number of areas. Their responsibilities may include: working with the Art Editor to develop overarching design concepts for print media; helping to develop schedules for layout weekends and other intensive production periods; sourcing graphic contributions from outside Woroni; putting finishing touches on designs; and ad hoc duties as discussed with the Art Editor, based on the subeditor’s expertise. This role is ideal for someone looking to buffer their practical design skills with organisational experience. Adobe suite experience strongly preferred.
