I have been designing book covers and children's books since I started my company 16 years ago. I work with several publishers (Urim Publications, Devora Press, Menucha Publishing, Apples and Honey Press, Gefen Publications), producing covers and laying out children's books, and I also work with independent authors. For covers, I work with the authors to create a visual representation of the soul of their book. For children's books, I usually work together with the editor and/or author and illustrator from the beginning, providing insight into how the illustration relates to the story, ensuring the illustrator leaves room for text in places that make sense in the story, choosing fonts, and then laying out the book in a way that creates harmony between the pictures and the text. I also have done other graphic work, including web design, branding, and different types of printed materials, including brochures, ads, posters, catalogs, trade show booths, and more.
I have designed all of Flashlight's children's books - both cover and layout - as well as all their other marketing materials, including their website, bookmarks, posters, rollups, catalogs, and ads. I work together with the editor to produce beautiful picture books that stand out.
