Whether you need help with a small project or with a "bigger picture" approach, I can help. I specialize in cover designs for both print and ebooks.
I can take any book project from initial concept through to final print-ready files, creating well thought out design solutions to a consistantly high standard, while always being mindful of the initial brief. I am experienced in commissioning and directing photography, styling and illustration, preparing print-ready files and monitoring print production (proof checking and colour correction). I work in Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.
Clients include Bloomsbury Publishing, Blackwells, Cengage, HSBC, Oxford University Press, Polity Press, Hart Publishing, Royal Bank of Scotland, Wiley, The RFU and Football Association. Apart from books I have also worked on magazines, catalogues, annual reports, logos, branding, packaging and exhibitions.
