I am an experienced book cover designer living and working in London. 

In 2016 I was shortlisted for the non-fiction award by the Academy of British Cover Design (ABCD) for my cover Visual Devices.

I am the founder of two magazines: In 2015 I began Spine, a magazine that aims to showcase new and noteworthy cover design and promotes high standards in the industry. Spine is currently managed and edited by designer Eric Wilder. In 2017 I co-founded Foul Play a new kind of true crime magazine that prides itself on thoughtful and non-sensationalist content. I'm currently managing editor for Foul Play.

Clients include: Bloomsbury | Palgrave Macmillan | Princeton University Press | Zed Books | The Bookseller | IB Tauris | Whitefox | Macmillan Higher Education | Amper and Sand Publishing

From start to finish Emma has been totally professional, helpful and quick to communicate. The early drafts of the book cover were all so good, and the final version absolutely perfect! She provided all sorts of promotional material to support my book at launch, and expert advice at all stages. I can’t thank her enough!

I’ve worked with Emma on two projects, and both book covers exceeded my expectations by a long shot. The finished covers are to die for, and Emma was great to work with from start to finish; I can’t wait to work on my next project with her.
