Do you love design and do you love books? Are you looking to develop into a creative publishing designer? 
Our designers work across a broad range of publishing and with a fabulous variety of illustrators and brands. We are looking for a highly creative, enthusiastic and organised individual to assist our design team on the Ladybird list.
As Design Assistant you’ll work with a number of designers and editors across the team providing design and admin support. Day-to-day you’ll be responsible for tasks ranging from producing mock-ups, updating brand sheets and correcting files to creatively designing previously published (backlist) books into fresh new formats and working on your own projects where appropriate.
This is an exciting opportunity for someone with a passion for children's book design to join our busy team.  This is a fast-paced role, so you’ll need to be efficient, adaptable and a strong, clear communicator.
This is an entry level position but you should be able to demonstrate a keen design eye, good typographic skills and creative flair. You’ll be a fluent user of InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator, with a working knowledge of Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Previous experience of working in a design studio would be beneficial.
Please apply no later than Sunday 22nd October with a PDF that showcases the three examples of your work that you are most proud of, a CV and a cover letter which tells us why this role caught your eye.
