Oversaw book jacket trafficking for the Jacket Art department between the Editorial and Production departments and meeting the scheduled deadlines issued by them. Other components included: negotiating and purchasing cover image rights from stock photography agencies, freelance photographers, and foreign book publishers. Reviewed pre-press output for reproduction approval. Converting and redesigning hardcover, international editions, and movie tie-ins into mass-market paperback format as well as updating past titles for reprint.
In addition I also conducted photo research for potential jacket art usage and assisted the Art Director as a sketch artist and illustrator.
