Zuri Negrín - Designer

Madrid, Spain

Book cover designer that has design dozens of acclaimed, featured and awarded works. I value clean, minimal, and beautiful designs.

Overview

I am a Madrid-based book cover designer who values clean, minimal, and beautiful work. In the past 10 years, I've worked on book covers, posters, branding, identity, mobile apps, and user interface and user experience projects.

Since 2010 and until currently I have been working as editorial designer and illustrator for several Spanish publishers like Nevsky Prospects, Alkibla, El Gaviero or Erein, where my work has been critically acclaimed and selected for several contests like the prestigious Visual Awards. I've also worked for important clients like Coca-Cola, BNP Paribas, Warner Bros or Disney.

During the whole 2014 I designed a poster every day of the year with original texts by Basque poet Hasier Larretxea for Hazu Studio's 365 project.

At the end of 2014 I was selected by the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) from New York to choose and illustrate five inspiring quotes about the creative process. The series was published at the website Eye on Design.

During 5 years I directed the Spanish cultural site Koult, that was an online reference until its closure at the beginning of 2015.

I've also been working at technology startups like Tyba, where my designs were awarded and selected by The Next Web as one of the best designs in Spain. Currently I am working as head of design at Miniplay, one of the biggest online gaming websites in the world.

Tangram (Nevsky Books)

Juan Carlos Marquez

Tangram is a thriller, a fractured portrait of our contemporary corruption that ranges from the Basque Country to ReykjavIk, from London to Calabria. A set of interlinked stories that combines and recombines into a series of possible narratives, each one giving its own perspective on a world built on deceit and damage. A morbidly obese woman, a former actress, imprisons two university students... read more

Moon Scars (Nevsky Books)

In his stories, in which high literature meets videogames and comics, and where Tarantino runs alongside the geometric nightmares dreamt up by Lovecraft, Angel Luis Sucasas goes against the flow of conventional fantasy and offers us the heightened vision of a powerful and singular imagination.

El Jugador (Spanish Edition)

Fedor Dostoievski

El jugador es una pieza básica en el edificio de la obra de Dostoievski, conteniendo absolutamente todas las características de sus novelas más famosas, esto es, morbosidad, dramatismo, tensión casi intolerable, agresividad y revelación punzante y sutil de estados anímicos vividos y superados por el genial escritor.
