In answer to ‘what book design would best suit a first time author, whose life is anything but ordinary?’ I thought his words called for more than just words on a page. They needed zest to convey the message. So what started as a straight book design, quickly morphed into telling his stories and bringing his words to life through quirky illustrations. To use the words that the editor used to sell it in to him after I’d sent over a few rough concepts…”it’s like orange – not everyone can wear it but we figure you are one of the few”. His response: “This is awesome. Better than I could’ve hoped. Keep going!”
