Anna Woodbine – Designer

Award winning jacket designer & illustrator specialising in typographic, illustrated & fiction covers.


I'm Anna, typography-loving book jacket designer and illustrator. I formerly worked as a designer in-house at Hodder & Stoughton but recently fledged the London nest to get a desk with a view in Wiltshire. I have 9 years design experience, the odd design award and a whole bookshelf of books to my name. I've designed for bestsellers, cook books, non fiction, literary fiction, women's fiction, bibles, diet books - you name it. I'm always happy to discuss a project, just drop me a line.
