Throughout my career I have worked in a range of styles. I’ve had to switch often between fiction and nonfiction titles, and each demands a different process. I’ll always consider the stylistic ephemera of the novel, the author’s voice, and the generic conventions it plays with to conceive an image that’s both striking and textually relevant.
Nonfiction necessitates a more direct approach similar to that of an editorial illustration, with a clever
graphic summary of the book’s argument or idea. I always like to picture the targeted reader of each particular title and try to echo their interests and peculiarities, which ultimately leads to a much richer portfolio that isn't bogged down by my own stylistic crutches. The ultimate goal with every cover is to identify an image that sticks with the reader, while also reaching a happy compromise between publisher, author, and designer.
