We're looking for a talented book designer to join us in creating highly visual children's books, from activity titles to complex pop-ups. We might train the right person, but ideally we're looking for people with experience of creating book content for children.
Designers: Adobe Creative Suite skills essential. Must be able to visualise content, have an editorial sense and be able to work on a variety of projects simultaneously to strict deadlines. Practical making skills an advantage (if you have a Blue Peter badge for making things, you'll fit in). Sense of fun, ability to brief illustrators and create visually compelling work. Understanding of print very desirable, but may train. Must have good typgraphic skills and ability to communicate visual ideas.
Car essential for our current office location.
Send CV and max 10 page PDF of work of which you are proud. Add a short covering letter. If you have publishing experience, tell us how you can apply your experience. If you don't, explain why you think you can create books for children with the skills you have.
Art school graduate, self-starter, with ability to work under pressure and to creative briefs.
