Must have strong communications and organizational skills, a proven track record of stylish design, and a willingness to change track and find the right design for every book.

Must be excellent at managing deadlines and working collaboratively with the editors and publisher on a design strategy for every title, and working with the managing editor and production director to ensure books remain on schedule.

Seven-plus years of experience with 4-color, illustrated books required.

Please send résumé along with samples of your work (via PDF attachments or a link to an online portfolio). We apologize in advance, but not all applicants will receive a response.
