This is a quick set of examples that I hope help you see and understand my range of abilities as a designer.
One of the first jobs I did as a professional designer out of Grad school was “Big in Japan”. It is a book about a rock band who fight Kaiju (giant Japanese monsters) in a huge cowboy root. In addition to the covers, I also drew about 25 interior illustrations per book and designed the Logo.
I recently redesigned the Logo for an updated edition. Big in Japan was written by a recovery minister. The monsters represent alcohol addiction.
However, I have a lot of experience designing other kinds of books, not just fun, action stuff. This is an instructional book I designed.
This is a workbook I designed for a therapist. I designed the logo for the book, but I did NOT design his logo (bottom left…I think it is a super problematic design)
This is a middle-grade book I designed a couple of years ago. The client says that when he shows at conventions, it gets a lot of attention.
And here are a few other jobs, including a romance novel, a kids’ book, and some other strange things.
I thought this may also help you understand where I’m coming from as a designer. This is a video of me explaining to a student how to redesign their materials. It starts with their work and ends with mine. You can watch me design a book cover based on the student concept in about a half hour.
Here are images from a Sunday school series.
Here are some examples of type design.
And here are some videos to show motion graphics work (if you are also looking for that)
I hope this helps you see what I can do. I know it was light on interior text design. I’ll dig up some examples to show that as well.
