Sara Mognol – Designer

Passionate book designer and photographer from Italy with over 10 years' experience in the UK with Penguin USA, Macmillan,and Design Museums

Overview

I have a rich and eclectic design background, with over 10 years of experience designing books for adults and children and an inborn passion and practice in illustration, photography, and visual art, which becomes essential when designing covers. My design approach is one that thinks outside of the box, and I always strive to create original and unique books that attract a wide readership. By combining conceptual approaches with commercial appeal, I ensure that your book becomes a desirable, meaningful and beautiful object that leaves a lasting impression.
