Book design is the main reason I decided to study Graphic Design. While I now relish every second I get to spend designing and creating, I was a writer first, and as such I wanted to be able to not only create and produce my own layout and covers to a high standard, but to be able to offer these skills to other authors.
I was privileged to be allowed to design the covers for my own series as part of my course work. The first two covers I designed in the summer before I began the HNC, the following four (three from series 1 and the cover for one of the origin stories) I designed while doing my HNC. I have also designed some covers for a few author friends.
