Freelance sub-editor, Wallpaper* City Guides, London
Wallpaper* City Guides is expanding its contact list of experienced freelance sub-editors. We are looking for candidates with an excellent knowledge of design and architecture, rewriting skills and an innate understanding of the brand. You should be a stickler for detail, spelling and grammar, and be as confident about transforming copy into the signature Wallpaper* style as you are cross-checking street names and fine details on maps. Proficiency in InDesign is essential. The work would be based in the Phaidon office in King's Cross, London.
Send your CV, covering letter and references to Jeremy Case at email@example.com
