Over the years I’ve had the chance to design a variety of book covers ranging from fiction to non-fiction.
After concepting and defining the title’s audience, I would always start with a series of sketches which I’d refine by adding stock photography, texture, and typography.
The original cover concept for Bethenny Frankel “Skinnydipping” was to show a cocktail drink with the NYC skyline as a backdrop. After a few sketches, the decision was made to have Bethenny herself be on the cover. Celebrity photographer Joseph Cultice took the original image of Bethenny, which the art director and I then incorporated into the cover.
