Christian Jaggers, book designer for ‘It’s a pity I didn’t bring any swords’

Posted on Fri March 5, 2021.

Introducing Christian Jaggers, book designer for Martin Hatchuel's children's novel, ‘It’s a pity I didn’t bring any swords’

Christian Jaggers has more than twenty years experience in design, marketing, production, photography, finished art, reproduction, DTP (desktop publishing), sales, and advertising. 

There’s very little he doesn’t know about the industry - which makes him the perfect person to design the cover art and the page layout for ‘It’s a pity I didn’t bring any swords.’

He’s worked as the art director at Struik Christian Books and the Hoberman Collection, to name just two. He spearheaded the Hollard Publishing Group’s changeover to InDesign, he was involved in formalising the straight-to-plate standards (PDF) in the publishing field in Cape Town, and he was one of the first people in South Africa to send a book straight from computer to plate. 

Christian also has extensive experience in book launches and product launches and in advertorial publishing projects for books about the V&A Waterfront, the safari lodges of South Africa, and the winelands of South Africa, amongst others.  

Having worked for top clients in many aspects of business, and having worked with two design business startups (both of which are still running successfully) and a few other sideline enterprises, too, he’s the kind of person who simply makes stuff happen.

Working always with great gusto and enthusiasm through his agency, OneDesign, Christian Jaggers literally is the Power of One.
