I'm a Multidisciplinary Graphic Design Studio with a decade of experience creating visuals for book jackets and/or the interior packaging of coffee-table books as well as other publishing pursuits. As a designer, I care deeply about story and I understand your personal investment in your own writing.
My process is as collaborative as you are. If you'd like a designer to help you develop a theme, and visual language/narrative, then I'm the person to help you. I'm also happy to simply take what you've written and offer a design solution -- anything from a developmental consult to a compelling and bold book cover design. My priority is to help your prose shine and your visual ideas make the biggest impact.
My Design style is diverse, each project carries enough permanence to cut through today's noise and rise above the trends. In addition to designing for Vintage, HarperCollins, the Ecco Press, and the Chicago Press, I've done additional book design for the Society of Publication Designers, and American Photography (their 25th Anniversary Photography Annual).
