Position Available at Joe Zeff Design

Joe Zeff Design is interviewing for a position available immediately in Montclair, NJ: a graphic designer to manage the technical side of our operation. We’re looking for someone who can push our WoodWing apps to the next level, but not a programmer — a graphic designer with lots of great ideas and a willingness to roll up their sleeves and build great apps. We would train you in all aspects of app development using WoodWing’s Digital Magazine Tools, which do not require coding experience but do require basic familiarity of HTML and JavaScript and an interest in learning more. You would design and process page layouts using InDesign CS5 and create profiles, certificates and app builds using Xcode. Again, we’ll teach you what you need to know and expect you to eventually teach us whatever we don’t.

You need to know InDesign CS5 really well, as well as Illustrator, Photoshop and Dreamweaver. Extra points if you know After Effects, Final Cut Pro or any 3D package, as we can certainly put those skillsets to use. From time to time we work in PowerPoint, Keynote and WordPress, and we’d expect you to get involved there, too.

This is a position that will define itself by the candidate’s qualifications. Someone with information graphics experience may find opportunities to push the envelope in data visualization, while a strong graphic designer may focus on developing new storytelling techniques. It is emphasized however that the candidate’s primary responsibilty will be producing our apps from start to finish, including a fair bit of troubleshooting.

The candidate should be comfortable with the dynamics of a small studio in which everyone does a little bit of everything. One day you may be working on a Jay-Z album cover, the next day you may be running to Staples for paper clips. Expect to work on multiple projects at once, and expect all of them to constantly change up until they are finished. This position requires someone who is detail-oriented, extremely precise and well-organized.

Salary and title commensurate with experience; position available immediately. Please send resume, relevant work samples to No phone calls please.
