Dementia Activist

rohra-dementia-activistDementia Activist is the candid memoirs of translator and linguist Helga Rohra, who was diagnosed with Dementia at age 50.

The brief called for a striking, simple design, aimed at trade audiences. The colour palette of the photograph leant itself to a classic, muted look and I fell in love with it. The cover was accepted on the first draft, as was the typesetting.

The Mouse’s House

The Mouse’s House is a book of reflexology exercises and an accompanying story for parents and children. While reading the story aloud, the parents are encouraged to perform the reflexology techniques.

I was tasked with creating a series style for this and follow up titles, and uses colours picked from the book’s cover and illustrations. The second book in the series received a different colour treatment but the typography and layout design stayed the same

Stop Panic Attacks in 10 Easy Steps

scheinbaum-book-shotStop Panic Attacks in 10 Easy Steps  is a self-help title from Jessica Kingsley Publishers imprint Singing Dragon.

The initial draft for this cover was created during quick-fire cover design sessions for a catalogue – very little was changed from the original draft (the sans serif was originally a serif, and the word ‘in’ moved around a few times).

The interior was designed to match, and aimed at a general trade audience.

Reframe your thinking around Autism

Bridges - reframe your thinking around autism (Jessica Kingsley Publishers)Reframe your thinking around Autism by Holly Bridges is an accessable, parent-friendly book about the Polyvagal Theory and Brain Plasticity in relation to autism.

Designed and typeset to brief for Jessica Kingsley Publishers, aiming to enhance the earlier self-published version and put it in line with JKP’s vast catalogue of titles. As a trade title, I was allowed to have fun with the design, echoing the footprints of the zebra on the cover with the decorations around the page numbers.

To purchase a copy, please visit the Jessica Kingsley Publishers website.
