Cover concept for Winnie the Pooh book - While working as an Art Director in the Children's Electronic Books Department at Publications International, Ltd, I had the fun job of occasionally coming up with cover concepts for covers and interiors of the books, which were sent to illustrators after in-house approval. This was for a Winnie the Pooh interactive sound book.
A selection of children's electronic books that I art directed while employed by Publications International Ltd. My role would vary based on the book, but most of these I created thumbnail layouts to send off to illustrators; work with keylines, diecuts and sound templates; design the interior layouts and audio icon components based on style guides; work with teams editors, engineers, and art directors; manage the workflow of each project, etc
