Overview

Reviews (1)

I've been designing in the publishing and design industry for over 5 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.

What a great experience - Saskia was very professional throughout and gave great advice on design and formatting. Very easy to work with - look forward to our next interaction! Happy to elaborate for anyone deciding with whom they should collaborate!

Telling stories is my highest priority. Whether that is through my design or illustration, the end result should always be clear.
