Overview

Hi! Please contact me and lets talk about your project, every project is different and it is always a big pleasure to approach it in a very unique way. I always start hearing from the client how the project should be addressed aesthetically and even if there is still no clarity on this I provide ideas and ways to pull the project forward, once there is clarity at this stage may this be the layout or the cover design, I provide different approaches to refine them until the client is satisfied.

During my visual education in 2005, and due to good grades, I was invited to work with Design and Typography Master Luis Giraldo, who has won several awards in the annual book design competition "The Best Book Design from all over the World" been held in Leipzig, Germany. Experiences like this allowed me to go deeper into how to find the perfect harmony of a typographic composition, being able to work with very complex content always giving a subtle and interesting way to present it.

Although I had so much exposure to the Editorial and Publishing world, in the last 10 years I have performed multiple projects in the areas of graphic design, visual identity, corporate design, iconography, photography, and videography among others, and this has given me a solid understanding of visual communication, multidisciplinary processes, and clear objectives in order to always create a positive and engaging experience with the user. I am able to deal with every stage of a graphic project, from conception to conclusion, with the upmost attention to detail to fulfil or give shape to the idea that needs to be expressed. I am particularly fond of Photography and Mindfulness books but I am open to work on any type of editorial project.

I have special strength on typography, layout and composition, book design, and illustration. I look forward to hearing from you.

Working with Mahadev virtually from the United States to get the first book I've personally written and published was a fulfilling and productive partnership and I will HIGHLY recommend him to friends and colleagues who are getting ready to typeset/lay out their books. He was willing to go the extra mile to clear up the inherent potential miscommunications that happen in any creative collabora...

Mahadev was great to work with. It was my first book so there was a lot of back and forth since I was also learning the process. He was professional every step of the way and I'm really happy with the end product!

As a graphic designer It is always nice to work with another designer, Richard happened to be a top game designer with loads of experience and a great eye. I learned a lot from working with him.

Mahadev, who I sensed to be a true, artistic designer of covers, produced a redesign of my ebook cover within two weeks that I am using to market the book today. He provided both a concept for an illustrated cover (with a longer timeline), and then supplied me with six different, improved graphical designs that he delivered in just a few days. Two of these captured his concept in a way that m...

I enjoyed working with Mahadev. He took the time to ensure he fully understood my needs, offered his expertise and guidance, supported my vision, and elevated what I aim to convey poetically with his own creative vision for the cover design. I am pleased that the book cover tells as much of a story as the interior matter, and that they also complement each other by functioning as as a single u...
