Cover Designer

Thames & Hudson seeks a talented designer for book covers and jackets. We're looking for a creative individual who has experience designing from initial concepts right through to final layout files ready for production.
We publish for a diverse audience worldwide and our books need to appeal to discerning readers with wide ranging interests and varied backgrounds.

We’ll be looking for portfolios that show an intelligent and inspired use of a rich and varied visual language. Your work demonstrates a scrupulous attention to detail, precise and expressive typography, an ace picture editor’s eye, a love of colour and materials, and the ability to use all these elements together to create desirable, distinctive and user-friendly designs.
