Design Rationale

Design Philosophy: While typography and image are key in establishing mood and carrying trends, I believe it is important to bring honesty and a sense of playfulness to each project. I believe covers in particular should offer viewers something visually striking that not only reflects the essence of the book but also allows for interpretation. Just as readers form their own individual connection to a story, I strive to create work that engages, provokes and connects.
