Jenny Haslimeier


Jenny Haslemeier Jenny Haslimeier graduated from Wanganui School of Design with a Bachelor of Computer Graphic Design (Hons). After gaining industry experience in Auckland, she moved to Edinburgh in 2005 where she freelanced in a variety of design disciplines. She returned to New Zealand after five and half years and moved into book publishing, joining Penguin Books New Zealand as a book designer in 2012. Haslimeier relishes any opportunity to combine her illustration skills with her book design.
Judges’ Comments Jenny Haslimeier’s work is bright and playful, showing an obvious delight in her subject matter and her pleasure in working with wonderful content. Her selection of books shows a desire to utilise craft in relationship to typography, but she never lets that distract from the focus on the imagery and story at hand.
