Robin Vuchnich - Designer

Raleigh, NC, United States

I'm an award-winning Creative Director & Designer with over a decade of experience. Poetry • History • Science Fiction • Thrillers +More

Overview

I understand how important your book is to you. You've spent countless hours crafting, perfecting, iterating, gathering feedback from trusted friends and colleagues, researching, and experimenting.

Creative work that comes from the heart inspires tremendous effort and passion.
I know because that's how I work too.

If you collaborate with me on a project you can expect the following:

• Extremely thoughtful and striking visual design
• Multiple approaches and iterations with you
• Great communication with collaborative and conceptual thinking
• Excellent attention to typography and detail


HERE IS WHAT MY CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT WORKING WITH ME:

"Robin Vuchnich has designed two of my book covers, and both were done brilliantly. Her design skills are incredible, and the covers she designs "pop" in ways that have gotten them noticed (i've been told as much by booksellers). Let's face it, sometimes books are judged by their covers. Robin knows how to make people want to pick up a book!"

— Christopher Salerno, Author & Associate Professor at William Paterson University


"Robin did a fantastic job designing the cover of my book. We sat down together with an initial design and then tweaked it until I was totally thrilled with it. Robin is great at collaboration and at understanding what her client is looking for. She responded to all of my likes and dislikes, and knew exactly what to do to get the cover just to where I wanted it. It takes an experienced and intuitive designer to do that, and that’s exactly what Robin is. I would not hesitate to use her again on any future projects."

— Marsha Gordon, Author & Associate Professor of Film Studies at North Carolina State University

ATM

Christopher Salerno

Poetry. "Christopher Salerno's ATM is a decadent refutation of Robert Graves' quip that 'there is no poetry in money, either.' The material world and the natural world stand side by side: a tulip planted not beside a river bank but beside a bank machine. The bank, like a tree, has branches. 'People are getting free shipping, and all the bees are gone.' Salerno rifles through our empty wallets ... read more

Poetry. "These poems contain a wonderful capacity to incorporate unpredictability, humor, anguish, anxiety, longing, and feisty note of confusion and survival...poems that are not wedded to literal and linear meaning of experience but to the imagined and circular meanings and play. WHIRLIGIG is consistently attentive to an edgy playfulness and serious mindfulness, continuing dialogue with matt... read more
