Jamie Keenan – Designer

Book cover designer with 25 years experience, based in London.

Overview

I've designed covers for over 25 years and work for large multinationals, smaller independent publishers and authors who are doing everything themselves. I like books that involve ideas, never miss deadlines and want to make the whole experience of putting a cover together as enjoyable as possible for everyone involved.
