My work includes book cover design, illustrations for fantasy and children's books as well as some more technical map and diagram design. However, cover design is my primary field of expertise. I love the artistic challenge of conveying the narrative or subject matter of a book in a single eye-catching design. In 2006 I moved into the senior design role with the company, hiring staff, managing the design department workflow and determining what briefs are to be handed to out-of-house personnel. Despite these extra responsibilities, I still managed to be an active designer and particularly enjoy working on fiction titles.
Area Covered: Cover Design, Text Layout/Typesetting, Illustration
Work Experience Summary: I enjoy close working ties with the Royal Marines Historical Society and am often called on to do interior layout work and cover designs for their special publications on a freelance basis. Alongside the new titles produced by the society, this includes working on completely redesigned editions of their back catalogue. Some titles are also revised and updated periodically; I have worked on no less than three editions of A Short History of the Royal Marines, a pocket sized abridged history of the corps that is now issued to all new recruits at the Commando Training Centre RM, Lympstone.
Education Summary: I graduated with a BA Hons in Graphic Design in the class of 2002 at Coventry University.
