Design book covers and interiors, as well as managing all aspects of a book's design life cycle (preparing print-ready files, assessing proofs, triple checking final files for accuracy). Working on over 80 books a year, I work with authors and the Press' in-house marketing, acquisitions, and sales teams to create successful book cover designs.
As the in-house designer for Studio TILT, I designed all content both client-facing and internal. From pitch decks to a label for a can of beans, I cut my teeth on design in a fast-paced and innovative environment where my colleagues and I blended the best of existing conventional wisdom and a dose of magical 'what if we do this?' thinking. Studio TILT's focus is designing with their customers and end-users in mind, and work there gave me a unique insight into collaborating with an end user that I bring to my current freelancing as a book designer. I know how to ask the right questions to get the best information from experts (authors) about their product (book), and how to convey that information using principles of graphic design and aesthetics.
As a freelance designer I've worked with a range of clients, from a non-profit reading charity to a coffee shop and roaster to a bestselling historical novelist. My practice currently specializes in book covers, both digital only and print and digital packages. I love bringing order to chaos, and wrangling complex data into well-designed tables is my guilty pleasure.
