Nicolo Giacomin - Designer

Paris, France

I'm an editorial designer. I create book covers with strong typography and custom lettering for both fiction and non-fiction titles.

Overview

I've been working as a graphic designer since 2012. My projects involve strong typography or custom lettering when needed. I design book covers where lettering and illustration creates a unique image. In each title I try to find the best visual match to convey the concept of the author and to find an original solution to express it. I'm not an artist but a designer. That means that I start from the brief to find the perfect translation of the author's idea, I try to develop the concept with him to have a coherent image of the content. I worked for: Flammarion, Pocket, hélium, Mondadori, Denoël Graphic, Edizioni EL, Hinkler Books, Éditions des Braques, Fleuve Éditions, Éditions du Chêne, Emme edizioni.

Telling stories is my highest priority. Whether that is through my design or illustration, the end result should always be clear.
