💥 TAKEOVER BY ONE YEAR IN ALUMNI 💥Hi everyone! I’m a Jake a freelance illustrator based in Bournemouth UK and I’ll be taking over the ND account for the next few posts to discuss my new book and more! ⁠

I was part of New Designers 2017 where I was lucky enough to win the New Designer of The Year Award. Since then I’ve been working with some amazing people, more about them later. I’ve just released my second non-fiction children’s book Darwin’s Voyage of Discovery with my brilliant publisher Pavilion Children’s Books who I met whilst at ND17!⁠
