Services

I'm a writer and designer who has been telling stories—both visual and literal—for close to twenty years. Before launching my own graphic design business, I was for ten years the Development and Communications Director at GrubStreet, a non-profit literary arts center based in Boston. I have experience working with individuals and organizations in the fields of publishing, the arts, and education. Clients include 617Books, BookSavvy Public Relations, GrubStreet, Mt. Holyoke College, and the Boston Book Festival.

Book Cover Design

Your book cover is your book’s first impression on a reader, and you want it to function as an interesting and engaging visual metaphor for what's inside. I like to work with your vision—from a vague idea, like a general color, symbol or image that resonates with you, to a specific photograph that you’d like incorporated into the design. I’m also happy to start from scratch with minimal direction. It’s up to you. No matter how our design process unfolds, I want you to feel great about the design we create for your book.

Print Collateral

Having a professional and cohesive look to all your marketing materials will set you apart from the crowd. I can work with you to create materials from scratch, or to refresh existing collateral. I have experience designing advertisements, brochures, direct mail pieces, annual reports, posters, sales materials, folders, infographics, and more.
