Natalia Agapova – Designer

Eye-catching graphic design, trendy and clean style, strong layout for fiction, non-fiction books and series

Overview

As a graphic designer with over 10 years of expertise in print and digital media, my focus lies in crafting book covers and layouts that embody a minimalist style and feature clean typography. With a keen eye for black and white aesthetics, I excel in creating visually striking covers that seamlessly integrate with the overall design.


Having collaborated with a diverse range of clients, including independent publishers and major institutions, I possess a thorough understanding of the publishing process. My portfolio spans various genres such as literature, art, film, and theory, and I have a particular affinity for designing book series that maintain a consistent and eye-catching visual identity.


Embracing the principles of clean typography, I pride myself on translating the essence of a book into compelling visuals that resonate with readers. My quick and efficient workflow ensures timely delivery, while my ability to work within teams allows me to forge connections with authors, editors, and proofreaders.


By combining my passion for reading, appreciation for non-fiction, and interest in art and culture, I aim to create visually compelling works that inspire and inform readers.
