My first full-time design position out of college was with Publishers Weekly – a weekly news magazine focused on the international book publishing business, as their Marketing Designer. I absolutely LOVED this job, as not only an avid reader, but as someone new to the workforce looking to gain as much experience as I could.
I stayed with the company for 5+ years, ultimately working my way to Senior Marketing Designer, working with some of the best colleagues and mentors I could ask for. Thankfully, when it became time to expand my experiences to other industries, I never lost touch with these wonderful people.
Which brings me to this post! Over the past 2 or so years, I’ve been contracted by Publishers Weekly to design for their self-published authors – clients looking for design of print and/or web ads to promote their books. This is such a growing market in today’s publishing industry, and I can’t thank PW enough for trusting me to deliver effective ads throughout this time.
