Creative direction to ready to publish design.
The sole purpose of writing a book is to share your idea or story with the world.
The sole purpose of a book designer is to transform your idea and story into a reading experience from cover to cover.
My work as a book designer is to create a clear and strong voice between you as the author and the reader – from the cover to every single page. With the nuances of typography & the subtly of composition, I create book design that enhances your story.
And, you do not need to google to know what to ask for. You will get guidance, knowledge and creations based on your project and needs.

Book cover design, front, back and spine
The saying is true – we do judge a book by its cover. Choosing the right images, typography and colours to align with the genre are key to make your audience curious and eager to read.

Each page and every chapter needs tender love and care to ensure it’s easy to read. Continuity, in page and text hierarchy, typography and layout, are the silent language that creates a reading experience.
