Andrea Kearney - Designer

London

Experienced cover designer

Overview

I have been working as a designer in the publishing industry for 8 years and am currently Senior Designer at Bloomsbury.

My publishing work ranges from covers to fully illustrated interiors and spans a wide range of titles from children aged 6 to 16 and crossing over into the adult market. However I'm keen to explore new territories so all briefs welcome.

Outside of publishing I carry out branding jobs for small independent clients ranging from cafe/bars to film production companies and design for arts and music projects. I have a huge passion for contemporary art, music and film.
