Daniel Rembert - Designer

NYC area, U.S

Lifelong lover of books with decades of experience in packaging books seeks new opportunities working directly with authors, near and far.

Overview

Growing up in a house brimming with books, it's only natural that I wound up in book publishing directing my creative energies towards the ideal packaging and marketing of all manner of books.

Having worked in-house for several decades at some of the largest publishers in the world, I've been exposed to and have become adept at a broad range of styles and genres. From international bestsellers to academic books with the tiniest of print runs, I've encountered and enjoyed it all. Staying relevant in this industry forces one to keep current with the ever-changing demands of the marketplace and there's always more to learn.

Since going freelance full-time in 2009, I have continued to handle projects for the bigger publishing houses as well as pursue direct working relationships with any number of smaller presses and self-publishing authors.

I appreciate the opportunity in bringing my years of knowledge and skills to the packaging of an author's vision on such an immediate level. You've spent a lot of energy in writing your book, and I'd love to help you reach your vision for the packaging of that book.

Whether it's starting from conception and providing all of the visual inspiration or it's executing your specific vision and getting that made ready for publication, I'm open to hearing about your specific needs. Just let me know if you're interested along with any relevant details and I will get back to you as soon as I can about whether I might be the right designer for your project.
