As an avid reader, I've always wanted to read and make books look beautiful for others. Here are some of my most recent book designs and experiments in hand lettering.
Mistletoe and Mr.Right
I designed the interior of this book; I also designed the cover based on an earlier design by Ashley Poston.
The jacket is 4 color gloss with metallic red foil.
I designed the picture book jacket and interior. Hand lettering and illustrations by Ethan Long.
Jacket is 4 color matte lamination with Pantone spot color.
I designed the interior; I also collaborated on the design of the jacket with Donna Mark.
Tiara Saurus Rex
I designed the picture book jacket and interior. Sparkle varnish on front cover title and tiara.
The Ellie McDoodle Diaries: Most Valuable Player
The Ellie McDoodle Diaries was one of my first book projects. I designed the interiors of all 6 books, collaborated on the cover design for the first editions, and designed the covers of the latest paper over board and paperback editions. This is one of the books in the series.
I designed the book interior, color insert, and poster; I also collaborated on the design of the book jacket with
a designer who prefers to remain anonymous.
Lettering practice has helped me understand type design and letter spacing.
I practice drawing letters a few times a week.
