"Have you what it takes to be a 2000 AD design droid?!"
Not all of my droids are forged in the dark recesses of the Nerve Centre from spare computer parts and the remains of those who oppose me! On rare occasions I must look without these walls for those who might have what it takes to join my band of dedicated creative crude mechanicals!

To that end, Tharg the Mighty is looking for a JUNIOR GRAPHIC DESIGNER to join the team at 2000 AD and Rebellion!

Rebellion publishes two fiction imprints, Solaris and Abaddon Books, along with 2000 AD, encompassing the weekly comic 2000 AD, the monthly Judge Dredd Megazine and 2000 AD Graphic Novels. Tharg is seeking a full-time junior graphic designer to join his busy publishing department in Oxford. The successful candidate will have a graphic design qualification, a good knowledge of Adobe InDesign and Photoshop and familiarity with Quark and Adobe Illustrator. The salary is £16-18,000 p.a.

Duties will include: flowing in text and laying out interior pages for novels; prepping comic strip pages for print; scanning/colour correction and basic image manipulation; making corrections and final pdfs; designing advertisements; assembling the files for graphic novels. The successful candidate will be required to develop a broad knowledge of our archive to source and choose images for external licensees and others. Experience of design for websites and the internet will be useful.

There will be scope to develop this design role, however it is not a platform for submitting or producing artwork for Rebellion-published comics and graphic novels.

To apply, send your CV and any available graphic design work portfolio link or hobby work to, though Rebellion can only consider applicants who can legally work in the UK.

Do you have what it takes, Earthlets?
