Mark Thomas - Designer

Cardiff, United Kingdom

Direct, impactful, bespoke book cover design. Fave genres inc. science fiction, historical fiction, horror, thrillers, non-fiction...


A newly-minted book cover designer, with many (many!) years of multi-discipline creative experience in graphics, illustration, photography, video & marketing.

Trained in fine art photography and graphic design, my career has lead to increasingly senior creative & design capacities in both private and public sector organisations.

My growing interest in personal image creation and visual storytelling eventually led me to setup my own design company.

Happy working for either print or e-pub / digital, I like direct, punchy and ā€“ occasionally ā€“ intriguing (in my book covers!). Oftentimes my work is photographically-based.

My tools of choice include most of Adobe's main product line and a plethora of more niche - but equally great - software.

Also, Iā€™m almost obsessively client-centric, highly collaborative and quality driven: your needs are mine to fulfil.

Added extras alert! : all my design offers - whether from e-book, print, or both - always include promotional images such as simulated 3D book renders (similar to those in my portfolio, below) and Twitter and Facebook social media banners. Nice.

My motto: always a pleasure, never a chore...

(PS: On occasion, some of my work may now include little bits of CGI. Oh, my giddy Aunt... '.' )
