[Music/Graphic Design] Erikoismerkki Kirjasuunnittelu / Special Character Book Design

I run into some truly kind, rather brilliant artists constantly. I wanted to give a heads up to designer John Hubbard’s website. Here’s a bit more about his work:

A professional book designer since 1994,
my emphasis is on illustrated art catalogs,
photography books, and elevating music
packaging to book form…
along with designing record albums,
CDs, DVDs, film posters, children’s books,
cookbooks, and so on.

With my situational approach to design,
a great love and knowledge of typography, color,
and printing, I will  translate your ideas 
into a thought-provoking
professional publication.

Our collaboration will generate a new juxtaposition
of ideas, providing balanced and engaging form
to your content.

My personal interests extend beyond books
to photography, music making, and enjoying
the sights and sounds in between.

After a lifetime in Seattle,
I now reside in central Finland 
with my wife and daughter.


Thank you for looking.

John Hubbard

What is particularly pleasing to the eye is his music design, which you can peruse here. Consider supporting his work.
