Job Description

We are EMC Design, a leading UK design agency for the publishing industry, and we’re looking for experienced Graphic Designers to join our team.

We are passionate about what we do and have built up an unrivalled reputation for providing the best editorial design for some of the world’s most well-known educational publishers. The role is extremely varied, requiring a good mix of technical ability and creativity so the ideal candidate will have a love for all things design and an excellent eye for detail.

The job has two sides; technical design work (such as typesetting, editorial corrections, navigational design), and realia.

Realia is design within design, like arty inception…

It is texts students read and then answer comprehension questions from. Typically realia looks like texts from real life, so magazines, websites, gig posters, plane tickets, instant message conversations, basically anything and everything. This means the work can include logo design, branding, cover design, brochure design, user interfaces… the list is endless!

And being at the top of what we do within our industry means we have to continue to provide the most creative solutions and our designers have the challenge of doing it within the confines of the visual identity and learning outcomes of the course. Whilst being technically savvy and commercially viable. It’s what makes the role so varied but equally satisfying.

37.5 hours a week (7.5 hours a day)

If you have;

  • A degree or HND in Typography or Graphic Design
  • Proven creative ability
  • Minimum 1 – 2 years’ experience
  • Experience using Adobe Creative Suite, with focus on InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong organisational and time management skills
  • Can-do attitude with a willingness to get the job done
  • Interest in editorial design, publishing and books
