    Work history

    Currently

    Head Designer and Production Editor

    Sweet Cherry Publishing

    May 2016
    • Leicester, United Kingdom
    • Full Time
    • I design both new and established children’s titles such as the internationally successful Geronimo Stilton series. I also design for international book fairs and events that the company exhibits at. As a result I have also attended book fairs to look for potential Illustrators Sweet Cherry can work with. Along side the design aspect of the role, I also prepare files for large print runs, ensuring that the product is up to a high standard. I am in constant communication with printers from all over the world and have gained a good understanding of the printing process.
