We have a fantastic opportunity for a highly creative, talented, hardworking Designer to join our design team, working on our award-winning fiction list.
This is a full-time role and the successful applicant will be based in London, at the Nosy Crow office near London Bridge.
Candidates will have experience in children’s fiction publishing, on both illustrated and non-illustrated titles. We are looking for someone who is bursting with ideas and creative energy.
A high level of proficiency in Indesign, Photoshop and Illustrator programmes, excellent proven book design and typographic skills, and a love of children’s book illustration are essential, along with good written and spoken communication skills, and the ability to work to a deadline.
The successful candidate will manage book projects from cover and initial layouts all the way through to production, briefing and working with the illustrator throughout the creative process. The designer will report to the Head of Design but will work closely with other members of the Nosy Crow team, particularly the editorial staff, to produce child-focused, parent-friendly, high-quality books.
We are a small, close team here at The Crow’s Nest working in a friendly, highly creative and professional environment and we need a team player who is willing to muck in, particularly during busy times.
If you would like to apply for the role, please send a CV and application letter, along with samples of your design work, to Nia Roberts via email ([email protected]).
Candidates should have the right to live and work in the UK.
The closing date for applications is 25th August 2017 at midnight (UK time).
