Elwin Street Ltd, a leading independent co-edition publisher in Clerkenwell, London, is looking for a graphic design graduate with previous experience of working in colour-illustrated printed book design and layout, preferably with one year’s experience of working in InDesign for print publication. As a co-edition publisher, we expect all candidates to have an understanding of producing complex, illustrated books to the highest standard, on time and on budget.

The candidate must demonstrate key understanding of all aspects of printed book layout, design and production, including picture research and design to brief on both covers and interior spreads, as well as image and file sizes, knowledge of CMYK printing, and packaging files for colour reproduction and printing.

The successful candidate will be highly creative, with an active portfolio. We are a small team with multiple skillsets, and our ideal candidate will bring something beyond technical expertise.
