Andy Meaden - Designer

Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom

Experienced graphic designer, specialising in non-fiction titles. I spent 15 years as a senior designer at Oxford University Press.

Overview

I’m a graphic designer, with over 22 years experience who specialises in book design. I spent 15 years designing covers and text designs for science, medical and academic titles for Oxford University Press, between 1995 and 2010. Since July 2010, I've continued to independently design book covers and text designs for companies such as Wiley-Blackwell, Cambridge University Press, The National Trust, Routledge Taylor-Francis, The Lancet, Radcliffe Medical Press, Polity Press, MacKeith Press and Hans Reitzels Forlag, based in Denmark. As well as publishing, I also design business logos and associated branding, websites, marketing materials and large scale conference materials.

I can turn around cover and text designs on a tight timescale and always to budget. I like to work closely with authors in order to achieve the results they are after.

I've designed covers for all manners of subjects over the years from Agriculture, Art, Business, Economics, Computers and IT, Education, Engineering, Children's Cooking, Fashion, Finance, Health and Sports, History, Law, Maths, Music, Nature, Philosophy, Biographies, Technology, Environment, Culture, Politics and Transport.

Some comments from clients I've worked with:

'I have worked with Andy on a number of projects in a variety of contexts, from publishing, product branding to corporate promotional materials. He is always flexible and willing to put that extra effort in no matter what challenges I put to him. His work is consistently good and always easy to approach. I have full confidence in recommending him.' (Angela Francis, Freelance Social Media and Marketing Consultant)

'Andy is a great designer and I worked with him on numerous cover designs for medical books. A lot of the covers Andy designed for my projects were for series titles and he consistently delivered fresh and engaging end results. I would recommend Andy to anyone looking for excellent design solutions.' (Laura Quigley, KEHS Careers)


I'd be more than happy to talk about your latest publishing project…

The End of Finance

Collateral Damage: Social Inequalities in a Global Age

Zygmunt Bauman

Collateral Damage Zygmunt Bauman is one of the most original and influential social thinkers of our time. This new book focuses on social inequality. Poverty is often seen as a problem of law and order, but this obscures the social roots of inequality, which lie in the combination of a consumerist life philosophy and the shrinking life chances available to the poor.

A History of Violence: From the End of the Middle Ages to the Present

Robert Muchembled

Violence is so much in the news today that we may find it hard to believe that it is less prevalent than it was in the past. But this is exactly what the distinguished historian Robert Muchembled argues in this major new work on the history of violence. The thesis of a 'civilizing process' seems, therefore, to be well-founded.
