Claire Guigal

Claire Guigal - Designer

Paris, France

I'm a freelance graphic designer/art director/illustrator, specializing in cooking, drinking and photography books with an edge.

Overview

I am a designer and illustrator with experience working with publishers including Hachette as well as with authors, artists, printers and everyone in between. I love to work with every person it takes to make a book and I know how to manage every stage of the process.

I specialize in designing interiors and covers for illustrated books from cookbooks, photography books, illustrative biography and artist anthologies. My work with artists has also provided me with experience in exhibition catalogs, scenography, magazine, and visual identity projects.

I produce books that are stunning, clear and fit the brief and purpose you provide. Please get in touch if I can help with your project.
