About me
I am a book designer and editorial art-director with vast experience on illustrated non-fiction titles. I work shaping trade and professional books from concept to production always trying to achieve a beautiful final object that deserves its place in people’s libraries. I am interested in visual culture and have put together many successful titles on art, architecture, fashion, illustration and street culture over the last ten years. With a design studio background; I have previously worked across branding, digital development and indie magazine publishing which allows me to approach the design process in a considered and informed way. I love a challenge.
