I've been designing in the publishing and design industry for 9 years. During this timeI have worked as a freelance designer for Random House NZ and Penguin. I have a strong affinity for typography and the art of book design and storytelling.

In 2012 I was awarded the Publishing Institute of New Zealand, Harper Collins award for best cover of the year. "The judges commended Awa Press Young Designer of the Year candidate Saskia Nicol for her brilliant design of Tupaia, which won the HarperCollins Award for Best Cover."

Looking forward to being apart of Reedsy.

Saskia was great to work with and I plan to work with her again. She created an exceptional book cover for my non-fiction book, responded to all my queries and delivered on my brief. Highly recommended.
