I’m a freelance designer better known for making things than talking about myself...So here’s some creative eye candy just to demonstrate ;)

Verified identity


I’m a freelance book designer eager to tackle creative challenges in publishing of any shape or format, print or digital.

My speciality is academic and non-fiction books, encompassing every part of the process from image research to cover design, interior layouts to print.

That being said, I also love reading and designing for fiction, particularly YA, and I've designed more puzzle books than I can count: Who doesn't love Sudoku?!

Known for producing neat solutions with a “can-do” attitude, my bright, striking design sensibility could fit perfectly on your next book!
