Book Design and Production
The Assignment Design the Grade 1 Teacher’s Edition for the Reading Program, overseeing production of multiple volumes of books. Create master page specs, commission art, direct photography, and manage production team. Communicate with multiple departments to coordinate the placement of various assets.
The Creative The process began with a prototype chapter, working with designer's charged with each grade level, to create harmonious designs, yet unique to the appropriate grade level. Once the templates were established, multiple chapters were poured at a time. Time-management and task-prioritizing were essential, since new batches would pour while previous chapters were still in various stages of production.
