Grace Davies - Designer

Bristol, United Kingdom

Graphic designer based in Bristol. I design book covers for all of genres; romance to thriller, historical fiction to sci-fi.

Overview

I’m Grace, a designer living in Bristol. I work on various print and digital projects for high profile clients and smaller businesses. I have worked on diverse projects, from educational to charities, branding projects to book covers. I often work with other designers and developers, as well as working closely with clients. I am extremely passionate about design, I am a designer to not only make things look amazing (although that is often a fun part), but to make an impact on something or someone – even if it’s just to make someone smile. I love designs that are visually beautiful but I am interested in creative problem solving. I am excellent at managing my time and working under pressure to tight deadlines.
