ABOUT

I am a graphic designer specialising in book design and art direction. I have over 12 years experience in the publishing industry, creating books for publishers such as Quadrille, Hardie Grant, Kyle, Quarto, Bluebird and Pavilion.

I create striking covers and interiors page layouts for non fiction and illustrated books on a range of subjects including cookery, craft, fashion, wellbeing, gift (including stationery) and humour.

 

I regularly commission a wide variety of illustrators and photographers to collaborate on projects to ensure we create something unique and special. I have worked with some of the industries finest photographers, all over the UK and Europe, as an art director. I assemble creative photography teams, organise and attend shoots and provide visual moodboards.
