Jesse Green – Designer

Hello! I'm a Senior Children's Books designer, with a passion for illustrated fiction. Please get in touch if you are interested in my work.

Overview

I graduated from the University of Brighton in 2009 with a BA hons in Graphic Design. During my studies I developed a strong interest in print design and bookbinding. After graduating I moved to Tokyo to have a bit of an adventure, whist working as a freelance designer. After this exciting two-year chapter I moved back to London to begin a career in publishing, and started working as a Children's Fiction Designer for a reputable publishing house. I design and develop Young Fiction and Young Adult titles, working on the covers as well as the interiors. I really enjoy the creative side of my job and I often design the branding and style guides for new series, as well as developing some best-selling brands. I also produce marketing material and work on apps and micro sites. Furthermore, I am trained in CircularFLO, which allows me to create fixed-format ebooks. I enjoy the combination of creating digital and printed matter, and I am always keen to work on different projects.

I have absolutely loved working with Jesse! The final result is just wonderful. She also works quickly, communicates thoroughly, and didn't bat an eyelash whenever I requested a tweak or change. Highly recommend her!

Jesse put up with a lot of perfectionism on my part. He also has some very creative design ideas. He doesn't have the experience I needed for the design of a book interior or a book jacket, though. I had to have the finishing touches done by someone else.

Jesse is a dream to work with. She really helped me to push my work in another, much improved direction and the process has been very collaborative. She has good ideas, is conscientious and always communicates in a timely, friendly and professional manner. She is extremely patient. I'm multi tasking whilst writing and illustrating my picture book, and as neither of us wanted to cut corners, s...

Jesse is great to work with for a number of reasons. First and foremost, the quality of her work is what brought me back for a second project, and it's why I'll be working with her again. Second, she better than professional: She's friendly and enjoyable to communicate with. Third, she works quickly and if ever there was a delay, I knew about it ahead of time. That's worth a LOT in my book and ...
