The Emancipator is seeking a Creative Director to develop and lead the visual experience of The Emancipator.
About The Emancipator.
The Emancipator is a forthcoming digital publication that will reimagine the first abolitionist newspapers in the United States for a new day. Just as 19th-century anti-slavery publications reframed and amplified the quest for abolition, the new Emancipator centers critical voices, debates, and evidence-based opinion to reframe the national conversation on racial equity and hasten racially just outcomes. We are driven by a commitment to understanding how systems work to allow everyone to live and thrive. Joy and possibility underlie our ethos.
The Emancipator is looking for a driven, flexible collaborator to serve as a visual thought leader for the editorial and product development teams. You’re a highly motivated, innovative thinker who will develop branding and visual strategies for news, social media, product design, and community convenings.
You will build and lead a team of experienced designers, data visualization specialists, and developers whose mission is to develop thoughtful and impactful storytelling, and to drive engagement through a powerful and memorable user experience. The ideal candidate has strong attention to detail and love of cutting edge typography, design, illustration and photography. You have experience distilling and illustrating complex issues and themes. Must have the ability to work with experienced professionals and emerging practitioners, including students and freelancers.
This is a unique opportunity to develop a new digital property’s brand identity from the ground up, bringing big ideas to life cohesively across platforms — from the digital world to IRL. You’ll be central to creating the kind of inclusive, joyful, can-do culture that symbolizes the mission of this startup. You are not creating for the moment; you are creating for the future.
The Creative Director reports to the two co-editors in chief. Our team is based in Boston but we are open to discussing a remote or hybrid schedule. This is a full-time position.
