Mid-level // Design Department
Book designers are a crucial part of the publishing process. They work across a variety of different formats, including book covers and they may also produce marketing materials such as flyers and posters.
They work with a range of different illustrators and publishing brands. It is a varied and exciting role for a highly organised and creative individual.
A designer will report into the Art Director and work closely with colleagues in the production and marketing teams.
You can start off as an art assistant or junior designer and work your way up. You can also build a portfolio of your work and apply for publishing jobs from outside of the industry. There are lots of great university degrees and non-university courses that will help you build your portfolio.
