Job Opening: Full-time Designer/ Production Artist (Portland, Oregon)

Kinfolk currently publishes a collectible quarterly lifestyle magazine, cookbooks and other printed material, as well as running a constantly updated website, workshops, dinners and a soon-to-be-released fashion and lifestyle brand called Ouur.

HOW TO APPLY
Create an account below, then submit form on the following page.
All candidates should submit an application with 1) cover letter, 2) résumé and 3) portfolio samples (links and pdf).
Unfortunately we are unable to respond to all applicants, so you will only hear from us if we feel you might be a good fit for this position. Please allow three weeks for consideration. Thanks for your understanding.
Internships are available
Kinfolk offers a three-month training and work experience program with a broad scope that will teach you about many elements of working in the publishing industry (administrative, production, editorial, fulfillment, print, etc.). You will experience all aspects of the magazine world, such as being pulled in to help with photo shoots or editorial assistance, but the position will also be heavily clerical—unfortunately emails and Excel documents are part of everyday life here. The tasks and activities are designed to enrich the intern with valuable skills transferable to the intern’s future career.
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis for any of the terms, but decisions will be made roughly 6–8 weeks prior to term start date.
We’re no longer accepting applications for the Summer term.
We’re accepting applications for Fall 2014 (Early September-Early December 2014), and Winter 2014 (Early December-Early March 2015)
