Jesse Green - Designer

London

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

Overview

Reviews (2)

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.
