Comic Book Jobs: Penguin Books




Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials,

Star Wars: The Clone WarsAre you a designer with comic book and graphic novel experience? You could put that to good use in the world of traditional book publishing. Penguin Books is looking for a designer for their five (5!) Young Readers’ imprints (that includes Grosset & Dunlap and Price-Stern-Sloan).

You’ll be expected “to design and manage all stages of book production (covers, interiors, novelty) for 25-30 children’s books per year.” It includes a variety of different books - novelty, paperbacks, sticker and board books.

You’ll need all the usual design requirements for experience, software aptitude, plus multitasking and interpersonal skills.

And here’s the kicker: “comic book/graphic novel experience a plus” and “enthusiasm for media tie-in and licensing genre preferred.”

Good luck, job seekers!
