For David R. Harper’s Entre le chien et le loup, careful design choices suggest the artist’s influences upon his practice through the use of special materials. Laser-cut stars, referencing constellations, embellish the book’s slipcase. Signature shades of blue, suggesting a twilight sky (neither dawn nor dusk), appear throughout the catalogue—most prominently in the texts and the star-filled endpapers. Foil stamping and a powerful 10-page roll-fold insert complete the range of materials and processes selected to enhance this publication.

Company descriptionPartnering with cultural organizations to create a broad range of materials with a focus on publication design.
Why am I an RGD?I want to actively be part of building a strong community of designers that offer support and guidance to one another.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?Getting to geek out about books and meet my idols—Abbbott Miller, Steven Heller and Barbara deWilde—when I was asked to moderate the Future of Book Design panel.
Why am I a designer?I sweat the small stuff.
Why should you hire me?As one woman design studio I partner with individual artists, internationally recognized corporations and cultural institutions to create a broad range of materials with a focus on publication design. I provide both strategy and implementation through a collaborative process that allows me to assemble a tailored team of communication and design specialists to lend their expertise when needed. I do more than simply move boxes around on a page—I am passionate about creating work that has longevity. I extends the life and expand the reach of a text, event or exhibition by creating highly tactile and tangible objects, from brochures and posters to magazines and books.
