Book Design
“I believe it is essential to be completely familiar with the content of a book or publication and to thoroughly understand its intended message before designing its cover.”
“Bilingual design presents its own set of challenges. Each language must retain its own typographic integrity. I believe typography is the most important component of a graphic design solution.  The written word inspires the imagination.  The designer must be able to respect the written word and to express it in graphic terms.”
