I've been designing books since 2006, specialising in book covers, layout design, artwork commissioning and art direction. Creating the right mood for a book requires careful consideration of typography, colour, image and layout, and a sympathetic designer who is willing to listen.

I'm passionate about books and want to give your book the treatment that it deserves. Knowing your budget, resources and deadline will enable an initial assessment of your project. Ongoing dialogue to understand what your book is about and what your vision is for the design will then form a crucial part of the creative process. I look forward to working with you!
