Student from Falmouth BA Illustration visited both Penguin Books and Egmont Childrens Book Publisher today.
Senior designers Chris and Jill were able to stand in at the last minute for ex Falmouth student Richard bravery who was ill today (get well soon Richard). Chris and Jill did a great job of outlining the processes that underpin the design of book covers and how illustrators can get their work in front of the designers at Penguin.
The visit to Egmont was great. Tiffany Leeson, art director and the team gave a wonderfully informative presentation on Childrens books from pre school to young adult, both fiction and nonfiction, focussing on the commissioning of illustrators. Many thanks….
