Book Design

Three decades of designing books…

Besides Illustrating and image-making, I am a qualified book designer, art-worker and art editor with many years of organising publishing projects. I can take book ideas from initial concept through to finished product, to deadline and within budget. My creative expertise includes managing resources and budgets. Including; commissioning other designers/creatives, while working closely with editors/authors and freelance designers. I have many years ‘commissioning’ experience, especially photographers and illustrators for book covers. My services also include dealing with DACs, copyrighted material, galleries and other libraries.

My forte is working with authors, taking them through all stages of their books production. seeing it come alive and offering a bespoke creative service.

No project is too small or too big.

I can also offer full publishing packages or simple one off designs.

Any work undertaken will go through three primary stages: 1) Concept, 2) visuals, 3) artwork ready files (including proofs where amendments are needed).
