Alicia Tatone - Designer

New York, United States

Book cover designer and illustrator. Currently employed at HarperCollins, where I design fiction and non-fiction trade titles.

Overview

Reviews (3)

I'm a graphic designer, focusing mainly on book covers and editorial illustration. With experience working in multiple major publishing houses, I'm well-versed in meeting the needs of authors, publishers, editors, and consumers.

Conceptual thinking is my jam, and I'm never married to one particular medium. Collage, painting, photography, lettering, or something I've never even tried before—whatever treatment is best suited to the narrative, that's what your book deserves. I aim to make evocative, unexpected covers that will jump at you off the shelf (or out from among Amazon thumbnails)!

Working with Alicia has been a joy. Right from the start, she articulated why my book and her talents would be a good match and laid out a clear collaboration path. She invested time in coming up with distinct design concepts, was very receptive to feedback, and continued to improve the design. I'm thrilled with the final result!

Alica designed the cover for my ebook. Her designs were excellent. She provided a number of great choices; in the end, it was hard to select just one! If I had an "I wish" for our work together, it would be more specific and pro-active communication on Alicia's part. Even so, I would definitely work with Alicia again and recommend her to others without reservation.
