Q:Your job is really cool! I have a couple questions in terms of how you got where you are today. What did you study in college? How exactly did you get the job position you have now?
Hey, thanks! I got a B.F.A. in Graphic Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design. As for the job position, I’d say it was equal parts good luck and hard work: I applied, I interviewed, and a day later, I was hired.
So sorry, guys! I logged into this account tonight for the first time in months (and months and months and months) to find I’d gained a lot of followers without knowing it (Hi, there!) and acquired a lot of unanswered mail.
Sincere apologies all around. It’s officially a New Years resolution of mine to take better care of this blog, so let’s see if I can make good on my word, shall we?
One of my rejected cover designs for the trade paperback repackage of Between Shades of Gray. I was really hopeful that this set (there were several other versions with this image) would make the cut, but no such luck.
The holographic filigree around the title is gorgeous, and those bright pops of pink against the black sky work beautifully. The attention to detail that went into this design make it unforgettable.
I went through a whopping five rounds of comps (which I plan to post soon) for this cover. Two and a half months of late night designing later, it is finally completed and approved.
I’m pleased with it—and I still find it unbelievable that I was given the chance to design for Anderson, who I read while I was in high school (this title included, by strange coincidence!).
In stark contrast with the melancholy grays, the bright pops of yellow on this cover instantly caught my eye and led me through a hierarchy of type that breathes perfectly.
