I worked at N2 Publishing full-time (More than a year)
The opportunity to be a FULL TIME graphic designer in an awesome city. You can work from home 4 days a week if you choose or go into the office which has a great design studio.You are required to go into the office one day a week with your design team. Other designers are very helpful should you have any questions. Several outside work events offered in order to get to know coworkers (great for transplants). Most promotions are from within the company. Everyone is friendly and open. Very casual work environment but serious about the quality of their product. Fitness classes offered everyday. 2 weeks off for the Holidays. Free "lunch and learns" every month. Company socials every month. Matching contribution 401k, Health Insurance.
Deadlines a tough. Some 10-12hr days depending on speed and efficiency. Make sure you have a good understanding of Adobe Creative Design Suite (especially Indesign, and Illustrator). The less you know about these programs the slower you will work- which means you will work longer hours because the deadlines are the same for everyone. Some Area Directors are not as familiar with the printing industry and will supply lower quality images and files which make it harder to design. Some are not as organized as others either and this can slow down the process as well. Designing pubs and ads all the time can bet repetitive, but each pub and ad present its own set of challenges enough to keep your days interesting.
