Green leaves Dorling Kindersley

Judi Green has resigned from her post as group creative director of publishing group Dorling Kindersley. She leaves at the end of July after seven months in the position.

Her departure follows a series of structural changes within Dorling Kindersley, including its takeover by Pearson.

Green joined the company in January from design consultancy Wagstaffs, where she was creative director. Her departure at the end of last year was one of several senior changes at the London design group at the time, including the departure of her husband Brian, who had been design director.

Dorling Kindersley public relations director Fiona Allen says that changing plans are behind the departure. “There have been a lot of changes afoot and Judi’s role never really developed into what it was supposed to be,” she says.

“When she joined, her brief was to cover design and brand development across the group internationally, but that role doesn’t exist in the form in which she was brought in to do it. There will be no direct replacement,” she adds.

Green adds: “I was given a very specific brief and my responsibility was going to be worldwide. Although I have done a lot of things since I’ve been at Dorling Kindersley, the scope and direction of my role has changed dramatically.

“I have no regrets about joining Dorling Kindersley as it’s been extremely useful for me working on a broad range of projects.

“I am pursuing a few opportunities and am very interested to explore all areas, particularly in the brand guardianship role.”
