Overview

I am a freelance designer and spend most of my time designing illustrated books and book covers for publishers. After nearly 20 years in the industry I have a sharp eye for detail and fully understand how to design books beautifully and efficiently, plus how to work remotely with other freelancers and in-house teams.

My work for publishers includes: illustrated books, blads and presentations, book covers, text designs and typesetting, catalogues and marketing materials, magazines...

Over the years I have met some incredible clients, editors, illustrators and authors and had the privilege of being involved in hundreds of fascinating projects. From charity fundraising campaigns, to TV tie-ins, designer paint, royal books and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, I thank my lucky stars to be freelance and able to design such a diverse range of creatively challenging projects.

If I had kept all the books I have designed over the years I'd be writing this in my own library!

At the heart of all my work is a very good eye for detail, a passion for beauty and the understanding that design is not about me, its about you... the reader.
