Helen Lewis joins Pavilion as creative director

Pavilion Books has appointed Helen Lewis, formerly of Quadrille, to the new role of creative director.

Lewis will be based at the company's head office in Great Ormond Street and will begin her role on Monday 16th October.

Lewis was creative director at Quadrille for nearly 14 years during which time she worked on books with authors including Nathan Outlaw, Gill Meller, Gordon Ramsay, Michel Roux, Antonio Carluccio, Kevin McCloud, Cath Kidston and Vogue, and a range of branded stationery with clients varying from the V&A to Lulu Guinness. 

In her new role at Pavilion Books, Lewis will be responsible for all imprints as well as corporate identity including the design of the company's stand at trade shows and the various catalogues. She will also have an opportunity to commission books.

Polly Powell, publisher and owner of Pavilion Books, said: "I worked alongside Helen at Conran Octopus and have always admired the design work she does. She has genius. I know she will raise the profile of design at Pavilion Books, both internally and externally. She joins Pavilion at an exciting time in the company's development, and she will be a key member of the management team as we move forward."
