Middleweight Designer, Little, Brown Book Group
Who we are and what we do
Little, Brown Book Group is one of the most successful and dynamic publishers in the UK. Across fourteen imprints, we publish as wide a range of titles as anyone in the industry, and pride ourselves on the quality, variety and diversity of our publishing output. The vibrant Design Department is an essential part of this, looking after the creation of innovative and commercially successful book cover designs for all of the imprints.
What you’ll be doing
You’ll be a key part of bringing our books to life, working alongside a team of highly creative, well regarded and hardworking designers who tackle the challenges of a diverse range of book titles on a daily basis. You will be a vital part of the team handling the creative process from initial brief to final artwork. You’ll work closely with the rest of the in-house design team, many outside illustrators, photographers and other designers. A major part of your day will be the development of great working relationships with our editorial teams where strong skills in conveying ideas and effectively interpreting feedback will be key.
Who we’re looking for
This is an ideal opportunity for you to spread your wings, challenge yourself and tackle many publishing genres and look to push boundaries to help our books stand out. Your abilities will enable you to put yourself in the shoes of our reader and design a cover that strongly engages with them. You’ll need proven design experience, an impressive portfolio that demonstrates all your design talents, have a love for problem solving, possess great communication skills and have strong abilities to creatively respond to feedback. Strong Adobe Creative Suite skills and an established knowledge of print and digital reproduction know-how is also essential.
What we offer
This is an amazing opportunity for the right person to join a vibrant, creative and friendly team and be fully immersed in the design process whilst being exposed to a really broad publishing list. All based in our fantastic riverside offices in London.
Hachette employs people on the basis of their abilities. We aim to attract and develop talent from a base as broad as the world of readers we want to reach, with a wide and representative range of age, faith, disability, race, gender, sexuality and socio-economic, regional and cultural backgrounds.
