Ed Kneafsey

Custom Publishing Manager, DK


I’ve worked in publishing for over a decade, and in a number of different roles and departments. The thing that excites me the most about my job is thinking of new ways to do things, whether they are ideas for books or ways to sell those books. I always wanted a job that centred on creativity, throwing ideas around and then taking the best ones forward to see if they work. Publishing has given me that, along with lots of fantastic colleagues to collaborate with and learn from. At the moment I’m in a new job thinking of all the ways we can customise the front list books on the Licensing list at DK. This means I get to work with LEGO, Disney, Marvel, Pokemon and loads of other fantastic partners to come up with fun ideas!
