CHILDREN'S Book DESIGN

She Spoke

She Spoke is a powerful book, so I opted for a bold, clean look achieved with sans-serif fonts and bright, modern colors.

The Road Not Taken

This is one of my all-time favorite poems. The illustrations (by Vivian Mineker) are remarkably both vintage and contemporary. To enhance the timelessness of the poem, I opted for a font that resembled old block type. The resulting combination is a fresh interpretation of a poem that still echoes the original era of its first publication over 100 years ago.

100 First Words for Little Artists

A terrific book for little artists everywhere! The illustrator and I worked with a bright, trendy color palette that puts the book right at home in the gift shop of any art museum.

The Ultimate Guide to Being a Superhero

This guidebook comes packed with illustrations, diagrams, crafts, comics, newspaper clippings, and more! The number of details on every spread is simply delightful. The colors and fonts were selected to give the book a vintage feel, like a manual from the filing cabinet from an undisclosed 1950s government office.

The Interactive Constitution

The bold colors create a modern, fresh presentation of the Constitution and U.S. government. The book is filled with carefully engineered mechanisms that make for a fully interactive experience!

Book

This beautiful book tells the story of books themselves. The design begins with no illustrations at all—just plain words on white paper. The letters zoom in, eventually revealing the illustrated version shown here. After that, the visuals become lavish illustrations of a bookish world that has delighted book lovers in 6 countries and counting.

To Girls Who Dare

The collage-style design for this book is made from period ephemera, archived photographs, and pops of color from modern design elements. It's a beautiful complement to the built-in letters and postcards.
