Giles Hoover | About

For more than 25 years, I have been professional book designer, photographer, and graphic designer.

 

My preferred design medium is books, and is what I'm again concentrating on in 2018 and beyond; I love the challenge to combine imagery — often my own — with design, striving to successfully represent and sell the contents within. I've worked on hundreds of titles for publishers both large and small, and even been cited as a book design expert in The New York Times.

 

As a photographer, I travel all over the Eastern United States photographing cities and towns, villages and landscapes, architecture, and early in my photography career, events and weddings. (My favorite part of photographing weddings was, quite naturally, making the couple a commemorative book in celebration.)

 

Early in my career, as a graphic designer, I worked both freelance — in print media, advertising, and layout, mostly — and, for a while, full-time as a contractor for Tropicana, doing both juice cartons and conceptual work. No design for the internet; the web, then, was still new.
