Overview

I am passionate about turning your text into a beautiful object. You've put in the blood, sweat and tears, so you deserve the best design for your finished product, to help showcase your book to the world.

I will work with you to create a visual representation of your book that will help it to stand out online and on the shelf. My process involves getting as much information from you up-front about the vision for your book and then creating a design to suit the needs of your text.

My portfolio shows a number of different styles and mediums including photography and illustration. I particularly enjoy combining my own hand lettering with an illustrative style.
