Entry Level // Design Department
A Junior Designer’s job is to help sell the author’s book by making the cover the best it can be. Cover design needs to catch the eye and engage readers in creative ways. Nearly all of their work involves working on book covers but sometimes they also help with the typography in the book or with marketing materials.
The Junior Designer tends to work with the Senior Designer to define the progress of individual briefs and deadlines to ensure final book cover jackets go to press on time.
The route to becoming a Junior Designer varies. More often than not you will need to show a portfolio of work which showcases the skills that are relevant to the role you are applying for.
