Since 2011 I have worked closely with Wolverine Publishing as a layout designer. Over the past few years I have worked on the design and production of around 20 titles from this publisher, including: Red River Gorge Climbing, Editions 4 and 5: Volumes 1 and 2, New River Gorge Climbing, Edition 2: Volumes 1 and 2, Rifle Mountain Park Climbing, Hiking and Biking in the New River Gorge, Road Biking California’s Sierra Nevada, Maple Canyon Climbing, Backcountry Skiing California’s Eastern Sierra, Whitewater of the Southern Appalachians: Volumes 1 and 2, Bishop Bouldering Select, and Snow & Spire.
In book design, the layout is meant to communicate information in a user friendly manner. The cover, on the other hand, is a separate piece of artwork. Here is a glimpse of several of the covers that I have designed for Wolverine.
