Mac Production Artist

Melville, New York

Are you a highly motivated, hands-on, team player with a thorough knowledge and understanding of print production principles? Do you thrive in a fast-paced agency environment? Then you’ve come to the right post! At Wilen, we’re looking for a seasoned Mac Production Artist with experience managing high-volume, data-driven direct mail campaigns.

But what about us? Wilen is not your typical Long Island agency. We’re a    full-service direct marketing shop, focusing primarily on data-driven mail as well as developing creative across all marketing channels. Our clientele consists of national brands, and we create content in all forms – from straight, strategic assignments to more typical direct marketing efforts like print, digital, social and broadcast.

  • Execute creative concepts across all direct response media channels
  • Prepare and develop press-ready mechanical files following                production specifications
  • Produce print-ready files that meet manufacturing and postal requirements, and adhere to brand standards
  • Manipulate master files into various formats and specifications while maintaining the integrity and intent of approved creative
  • Collaborate with Creative Services, Account Management and Production to achieve client satisfaction
  • Manage multiple projects simultaneously in a deadline-driven environment
  • Perform prepress duties including retouching, color correction, preflighting, archiving and preparing mock-ups


  • 5+ years of agency experience in file preparation, print production                 and quality assurance
  • Expert proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite: InDesign, Photoshop, Acrobat     and Illustrator
  • Strong knowledge of design, layout and typography, and meticulous    attention to detail
  • Excellent communication and organizational skills
  • Ability to multi-task and work in a deadline-driven environment
  • Experience working in GMC Inspire ― variable data printing a plus
  • Bachelor’s degree in graphic design is preferred
