The Tulsa World is seeking an experienced, creative designer to join our Universal Design Desk. This job will focus on sports design, but there will be opportunities to design pages throughout the newspaper. The successful applicant will be able to build a high-impact sports page one day, a captivating feature page the next, and an engaging news front the day after that.
The Tulsa World is among the largest newspapers of Berkshire Hathaway's national newspaper group. Our sports section is consistently recognized in the national APSE competition, and we are an annual leader among Midwest papers in AP/ONE and Great Plains Journalism contests.

We cover three FBS-level college football programs – Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Tulsa – the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder and the WNBA's Tulsa Shock, as well as maintaining strong coverage of high school sports and our local Double-A baseball team, the Tulsa Drillers. In the past several years, Tulsa has also hosted the NCAA basketball tournament, the Bassmaster Classic and the PGA Championship, and there will be opportunities to work on special sections and other major projects throughout the year covering events such as this and more.
The position requires a college degree, preferably in journalism with design skills and knowledge. Applicants must be proficient in Adobe Creative Suite programs, especially InDesign and Photoshop with some knowledge of Illustrator, and a background in other publishing software is a plus.
