I offer comprehensive design and publishing solutions for authors and publishers who are looking for exceptional quality book covers and interiors. As a designer, my values are deeply rooted in the value of the book as art object. I do not subscribe to the idea that a book cover and interior should be handled by different departments or even different designers, and have sought to reverse this trend through content-responsive design on full book packages, including cover, interior, and eBook design. I have a background in printmaking, editing, and writing, as well as over 6 years of design experience in publication design. I consistently work with large publishing clients and independent authors on everything from self-publishing to large-scale offset print runs—there's no job too big or too small for consideration.

Walden, or; A Life in the Woods

Henry David Thoreau

A sturdy individualist and a lover of nature, Henry David Thoreau was typical of his time and place--an epitome of the Yankee spirit. In March, 1845, he set out to live life in a new way. Borrowing an ax, he built himself a wooden hut on the edge of Walden Pond, near Concord, Massachussetts, where he lived until September, 1847. Walden is a record of that experiment in simple living.

The cover also looks great ...

Thanks Margo—it's been a pleasure working with you. This was my first time working on a 8.5x11" book in several years, so it was enjoyable to return to this larger textbook format. I'm looking forward to seeing how the title performs against all the boring test-prep books in that market!

To say that Kevin is a brilliant rockstar would be a huge understatement. I thought he would be good (that’s, after all, why I chose to go with him), but I had no idea he was going to be as awesome as he was. Beyond his brilliant designs (both interior and exterior), Kevin is also super knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to finalizing, uploading and strategizing your whole publishing...
