Kim Fleming - Designer

Providence, RI, United States

I'm a passionate illustrator and book designer specialising in the children's market for over 10 years.

Overview

Reviews (2)

I have been working as a professional illustrator and designer for over 10 years.

I have fully illustrated children's books for major publishers, such as HarperCollins and Scholastic. My books have been sold into over 12 countries, and translated into multiple languages.

I also enjoy illustrating lifestyle and novelty books as well. My core skills include watercolour painting, digital illustration, typography and hand-lettering.

I have designed many of the picture books I illustrated, and have worked with self-publishers and indie publishers alike. I pride myself on translating the vision of the author or editor into effective aesthetic solutions.

I look forward to hearing about your next project!

Work experience

Designer

TLN press

January, 2009 – August, 2016 (over 7 years)

I created all print material for TLN (Teacher Learning Network), including a distinctive book series which stole more than its market share, by standing out against other books in its genre. The first book was reprinted 4 times.

I also produced over 20 publications which were constantly noted for their fresh and innovative design. I pride myself on working closely with the author or editor to realise their vision in a compelling and striking way.

I needed Kim's help again with design to get the book ready for another publisher. She delivered on time, with ease!

This is my second children's book through Reedsy. And I'm very glad I found Kim on here! Kim was extremely professional, super helpful, creative and delivered all the assets on time. My illustrator and I are relative novices to children's book writing so it was awesome to have someone experienced like Kim integrate our ideas and illustrations together into something that looks professional!!...
