Top Tips from Art Directors: Creative Directors, Art Directors and Senior designers from leading publishers including Bonnier Zaffre, Little Tiger, and Titan Books, amongst others will be at The London Book Fair on Tuesday 10 April to take part in LBF’s Illustrators’ Afternoon, an initiative run in partnership with the University of Cheltenham that focuses on illustration in children’s publishing. 

 The afternoon will be in two parts – beginning with a 30 minute ‘in conversation’ with 3 Art Directors speaking about their jobs, current trends and what they look for when commissioning illustrators.

After the talk, seminar attendees will have the opportunity to meet with one of the attending Art/Creative Directors for a 15 minute one to one appointment, to present their portfolios, receive feedback and ask advice. More information on this coming soon!

Attendees must also be in possession of a Visitor ticket to The London Book Fair. Only 1 appointment per person (and duplicate appointments will be cancelled).
