Book Design & Art Direction
I am a graphic designer with a special interest in book design. I have had the opportunity to work for several Australian publishing houses, including Walker Books Australia, Koala Books, Scholastic Australia, Murdoch Books, and New Holland Publishing. I am experienced in the commissioning of illustrators, art direction, interior layout and cover concept design and typesetting of a large range of non-fiction, fiction and picture books.
I enjoy the challenges of working from brief through to final design and am experienced in communicating with illustrators, editors, and production staff to get a clear understanding of requirements, working within budget and deadlines, developing concepts, image editing and prepress troubleshooting.
