Allison Martin - Designer

Haines Junction, YT, Canada

I specialize in YA, Romance, and Paranormal design for indie and traditional authors. I work regularly with Penguin Random House.

Overview

I am a graphic designer with a minimalist style and a deep love of bright colors. I work with independent and traditionally published authors to create covers, trailers, branding, and marketing design. I also work regularly with Loveswept, a contemporary romance imprint of Penguin Random House.

I have post secondary training in Applied Arts and Visual Communications with emphasis on graphic design and filmmaking. As an author, I stumbled on book cover design after creating the cover of my own debut novel and other authors took notice. Favors for friends soon turned into a passionate business.
