Patrick Kang – Designer

I am a book cover designer with over 15 years of experience, both as a in-house designer in major publishing companies and as a freelancer.


Having worked in art departments of major publishing companies in the United States, such as Simon & Schuster and Penguin Books, I apply my knowledge from those experiences as a freelancer. I am capable of heavy photo manipulation and photo-based digital illustration. I can also work with models and have a photo shoot and composite them into a desired background seamlessly. I can also do vector graphics work for the title type treatment when necessary.

In a word, FANTASTIC! My only hesitation in leaving Patrick the review he deserves is that I don’t want him to get so busy that he can’t find time for the rest of the covers in my series. Seriously, I consider myself lucky to have snagged him for my project, and you won’t be disappointed. I appreciated that Patrick found a way to bring a new perspective to classic design. He’s very talented.
