Our fabulous picture book art director is going on maternity leave and we are looking for an equally brilliant art director to lead the team while she is away.
Stand-out design is core to our success and our picture books and partnerships list is home to some of the very best authors, illustrators and classic brands in children’s publishing. It includes, amongst a host of others, Eric Carle, Julia Donaldson, Helen Oxenbury, Allan Ahlberg, Shirley Hughes, Ed Vere, Nadia Shireen, The Snowman, and our partnership with the V&A.
You will be an exceptionally talented, highly creative and experienced designer with a track record of understanding what engages the very young. Your vision will help us deliver industry-leading books.
As our ambassador for the design of the picture books and partnerships publishing you must be able to engage and influence, articulating ideas with precision and impact. The role combines hands-on design as well as art directing the creative output of the team.
Please apply with a CV, a few examples of your work that you are most proud of and a short letter which tells us why you are the person we need to lead this team.
