Book design is such an important part of a reader’s experience. Your book design should subtly enhance the reader’s journey through your pages while not distracting them from your book’s content. I have experience creating smooth, intuitive book layouts and can bring my skills to your book project, whether it’s fiction, nonfiction, or poetry.
Book Design Experience
I designed the interior of How to Raise a Founder With Heart by Jim Marggraff and contributed to the book’s back cover design.
I designed the layout for Capsule Stories Spring 2019 Edition, Summer 2019 Edition, and Autumn 2019 Edition.
I redesigned the layout of the body of Sigma Tau Delta’s 2017 critical essays and creative writing journals on InDesign, creating a template design complete with paragraph styles that can be emptied and reused as needed. I worked with another editorial intern to complete the layout of the two journals.
I designed, formatted, and edited Concordia’s creative writing journal Potpourri 2015 completely from scratch by myself in April 2015 on InDesign. I did not have access to digital copies of any previous issues of Potpourri, so I decided to design my own creative writing journal based on elements I liked from literary magazines I had seen. I attempted to keep the lines and fonts light so as not to detract from the wonderful poetry and prose. I used simple but relevant artwork submitted by a Concordia student to separate different sections of the journal.
