Mike Cryer, Managing Director, says of the scheme:
“We are very pleased that we are in a position to offer opportunities to graphic design
graduates in an interesting area of design. Taking on graduates and training and
developing them has been the best means of recruiting good designers for us. Getting
good creative people is essential to our plans for growth.”
“We work for the top UK educational publishers producing books and digital components
just within the publishing industry. So our expertise is in editorial design. This is a niche
area and often not recognised as the most glamorous area of design, however, it can
be the most challenging and rewarding. Young designers that join us generally say
they cannot believe how much they learn when they come here and what a friendly,
supportive atmosphere it is to work in.”
