I have been designing book covers for well over a decade;
firstly three years at Penguin Random House, then twelve as
Senior Designer at Faber & Faber. In July 2018 I joined Yale
University Press (pt) and launched my own freelance venture.
I work across all genres including Fiction, Non Fiction and Crime,
creating jackets for both Literary and Mass Market - you'll find
examples of my work in Covers.
Current clients include Faber & Faber, Lund Humphries,
Penguin Random House, Quercus, Simon & Schuster and Unbound.
As well as design, I particularly enjoy mentoring and lecturing -
so if you or your university are interested then do get in touch.
