MA student Jordan Baines about his recent work experience.

Hello, here is an update on what I’ve been up to. Last month I entered in work experience for an imprint of Little Tiger Press, Stripes Publishing. I worked with a small, but expertly talented team of an art director, designers, editors.

I worked on many things from dummy book making, re-flowing layouts for E-books, drafting cover concepts for upcoming titles and web adverts for new releases. It was such a fantastic insight into the world of children’s publishing, being able to work on live briefs and seeing how the process works from pitches and ideas to concepts to design then into production etc.

I had lunch with the Art Director and he reviewed my portfolio along with my current MA project with some great admiration and direction. I came away with valuable contacts, advice and the inspiration to keep on going to make myself successful within this small and competitive industry.
