Rafael Ricoy

Rafael Ricoy – Designer

I'm a graphic designer and illustrator specialized in book cover design.


I'm a graphic designer with more than 25 years of experience and almost ten years working for the editorial market. I have designed more than 100 covers, all of them published on paper. I have done all genres of books: novel, psycology, self-help, politics, health, philosophy...

I´m very versatile and resourceful, graphic design is the solution to a problem: find the best and attractive way to express the contents of a book. I worked for different subjects and audiences so I got enough experience to know quickly what is the best solution for your book. Let's work toghether!
