Cindy Hernandez – Designer

Professional with over 20 years of graphic design experience and a passion for Inspirational, Self-development and Mindfulness books.


I am an experienced graphic designer with a history of working for the publishing house Grove Atlantic, where I have designed print and digital marketing material, as well as book covers for award-winning authors. One of these book covers includes Roxane Gays' national bestseller, Difficult Woman. I recently joined HarperCollins as a marketing and promotions designer. And one of my book cover designs was chosen for the Jan 2023 cover of Booklist Magazine.

I have experience designing book covers in various genres, with a passion for INSPIRATIONAL, SELF-DEVELOPMENT and MINDFULNESS books. I love designing covers that are impactful, thoughtful and inspiring.

I have worked in the creative field since 2000, designing for various companies and organizations, in industries including Publishing, Architecture, Real Estate, Advertising, Non-profit, and Education.

I earned an AAS Degree with a concentration in graphic design. I studied at the School of Visual Arts and participated in the Shillington School of Design graduate design exhibition.
