I have a passion for designing book covers, but I design other things too (and I also enjoy that).
For the past seven years, I’ve been working as a Design Account Specialist with CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing and doing a lot of freelance work on the side. I’ve worked with authors big and small in all kinds of different genres!
My time with CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing helped me gain a ton of experience with the process of bringing a cover design to print while gaining a deeper understanding of emerging book cover design trends. Whether you’re a seasoned author or about to self-publish your first book, I can assure you that I will do my best to make sure your book not only looks great but is also highly marketable.
Before I became a graphic designer, I studied Strategic Communication and Marketing at Ohio State. My first passion was marketing and advertising but after working in the advertising industry on the account management and messaging side, I quickly realized that I actually felt more “at home” on the creative side.
That’s when I decided to spend the next few years honing my design skills by taking on all kinds of different design work. I had always been a creative and artistic kid, so the challenges I faced were more technical in nature. This experience gave me a much better understanding of what grabs people’s attention and moves them to make a purchase.
