Overview

I’m a freelance book designer eager to tackle creative challenges in publishing of any shapeor format.

My speciality is academic and non-fiction books and this encompasses 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, I believe my bright, striking design sensibility would fit perfectly on your bookshelf!
