EDITORIAL DESIGN

Please click on the links below for selected examples of my design work. This ranges from largely typographical book design commissions undertaken to a very specific stylistic brief, to more visual magazine spreads and experimental pieces produced as part of my MA in Design and Art Direction which was completed at Manchester School of Art in 2014. 

A Year in the Country: Wandering Through Spectral Fields by Stephen Prince
Cover and interior design of a 338-page book on ‘the outer reaches of folk culture’. The cover design was required to be in keeping with the stark black and white aesthetic of the A Year in the Country website and features photography supplied by the client. A Kindle edition of the book was also produced as part of the commission.
