Overview

I'm a Graphic Designer with a love for all things design, food and travel!

I have previously worked both as a freelancer and in-house designer for Dorling Kindersley, Penguin Random House, Hurst Publishers, Columbia University Press, Oxford University Press, Carlton Books amongst others. From designing covers, illustrations, layout design and typesetting to commissioning artwork.

I am currently working as a designer at Palgrave Macmillan where I manage the daily scheduling for the design team whilst seeing my own covers to press. Liaising on a daily basis with editorial, production, and third party suppliers both locally and internationally. I have an extensive knowledge in book design, jackets, bespoke illustration, typesetting both academic and fiction books, branding and exhibition design. In my spare time I make handmade prints that I sell to raise money for various charities.

I am looking forward to working on exciting projects like illustrated books, cook books etc that I can contribute to and hopefully also learn from.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any queries or would like to see some samples of my work.

Work experience

Designer

Palgrave Macmillan
July, 2016 – Present (over 2 years)

I design bespoke covers ranging from own photoshoots, handmade prints and illustration for various covers. I also manage the scheduling of the hundreds of books we publish each year with various designers and act as a liaison between editorial and design/scheduling. A job that is very challenging and fast paced but exciting!

Projects

Bespoke Academic Cover Design

Most of my front covers are hand illustrated or using my own images which I thoroughly enjoy making. I also design and typeset the book layout and illustrations (Fashion, Architecture or Children's) that might need to accompany the text.
