This book is all about the deal. Do you win? Why or why not? The author describes how to analyze a deal in very straightforward terms. I wanted the art to reflect the analysis — Win vs Loss — and the colors to be bold and direct. This is a beautiful book. It also won an IPPY award!

I was pulled in to design the cover of this book. The topic is how to use your time wisely. So I looked for an image that represented time in a simple but unusual way/ I like the clean lines and simple colors of this title.

This book is about encouraging women not apologizing for everything. It was a difficult concept to depict on the cover, so we used a maze and the (^) sign to emphasize the “un” part of apologetic. The interior picked up on the cover art and used pull quotes and short stories to entice and pull the reader through the book.

Joan Rogliano has created a book for divorced, first-time home buyers. She asks and reviews the tough questions. The design needed to be clean and simple. The information needs to be understood quickly. The book is all about opening doors for people moving on to new challenges. Due out summer 2017.
This is the second book in a five-part series. The first two books were released and were wildly popular. We then decided to pull all the books together with a unifying design. The next three books (unreleased) were to look similar to the first two titles. This is a retooling of the second cover. The common elements are the “Hyrum Laney” lines at the bottom, the overlapping image (in this case the flag) and the large sans serif title font. The third book is due out mid-2017, the others by end-2017.

I converted this book from a print book to ebook. I love what you can do to enhance an ebook to interact with the reader. Below are a few screen shots from iBooks. I created .epub and .mobi files.
I have a great golf swing because of this book. The author’s John and Paul took my basic swing and made it better. They love this game. When I was designing the book, I tried to show it and their will to improve everyone’s golf swing. Release date Fall 2016.

Grief books, in general, are very hard to work on. I realize I am part of the process of coming to terms with a loss. This book is quiet in design, offering the reader a path to recovery through meditation and self-reflection. I also converted it into an ebook.
