Freelance Designer Needed

I am not sure if I would have believed you if you had told me when I tentatively listed my first print on Etsy, that a few years down the line I would be working on Belle and Boo full time with a bunch of great friends and with lovely customers around the world.

A busy, growing business requires more work everyday & we now find ourselves in a position where we are looking to find a freelance designer for upcoming projects.

Could that be you?

Belle & Boo is all about vintage story books and classic compositions but with a contemporary edge. We are looking for people who are familiar with Belle & Boo and feel they could add something special.

What I'm really looking for is a mini me! ...someone who loves to: Design, Create, Draw, Photograph, Print, Package, Cut Out, Que at the post office (you don't have to love this bit!) ...someone who is: a stickler for detail, delicate but quick, good with typography & can multitask between a variety of on going projects!

I need help with: Typography, Brochure Design, Packaging, Point of sale, brand presentation & day to day tasks like re-sizing artwork and preparing for print.

This position would be perfect for someone that is looking for 1-2 days work a week, the job will be an organic process as is everything with Belle & Boo!

Unfortunately a major factor is location. To begin with it is essential that you can work next to me in my studio which is in East Finchley, North London.

You will need your own Laptop and be pretty handy with Adobe CS software ...photoshop, illustrator etc.

Please apply by CV, online portfolio and cover letter to:

PS Can't wait to meet you.
