Northwestern University Press: Will feature a Q&A with their book cover designer and Creative Director, Marianne Jankowski, in which she will discuss her own design background and answer several questions such as, “How is working on a trade cover different from a scholarly cover?” and “What are some of the trends in university press design that you’ve noticed?”
Princeton University Press: Designer Chris Lapinski will introduce and launch the PUP design department’s new Tumblr blog, which will highlight PUP design across all departments, while delving into the conversation on visual culture in book publishing. Chris will reflect on the art of design and its place in book history.
Georgetown University Press: Hope LeGro, director of Georgetown Languages, discusses what it takes for editors to get textbook content ready for the designer so that the book and the coordinating ancillary materials create the best possible learning experience.
Syracuse University Press: Will feature past award-winning designs and some recent successful trade designs.
Stanford University Press: A profile/Q&A with freelance designers, Anne Jodan and Mitch Goldstein, who’ve designed a number of notable book jackets for SUP.
