Book Design & Art Direction

My book design experience has included working at Koala Books as Art Director and as a senior graphic designer for Scholastic Australia, graphic designer for Murdoch Books, New Holland Publishing and self-published authors. I am experienced in the commissioning of illustrators, art direction, research, design and layout of a large range of non-fiction, fiction and picture books cover art and internal page design from concept through to press ready artwork.

   I enjoy the challenges of working from brief through to final design and am experienced in communicating with clients, editors, photographers and production staff to get a clear understanding of requirements, working within budget and deadlines, gathering copy and images from various sources, designing concepts, preparing layouts, manipulating images and prepress.
