There are just a couple of days left to apply for our Senior Designer position – the closing date is this Friday.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly creative, talented, hardworking and bright Senior Designer to join our design team at Nosy Crow. It’s a full-time role and the successful applicant will be based in the London office of Nosy Crow in Borough (near London Bridge, Borough and Southwark tube stations, and 15 minutes’ walk from Waterloo).
Candidates will have the right to live and work in the UK and will have a minimum of 3 years’ experience in graphic design, mostly if not exclusively in children’s publishing, and will have worked on picture books and novelty titles. 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 illustrated book projects (currently picture books and novelty books, but who knows what we might do in future?) from initial layouts all the way through to production, supporting the illustrator or the author/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 digital samples of your design work, to Stephanie Amster via email ([email protected]).
If you are not quite at Senior Designer level, but think that this job might be of interest to you if it were advertised as a Designer role, but if you have picture book and novelty experience, we would be happy to hear from you.
The closing date for applications is 18 July 2014 at midnight (UK time).
