a look at the design of craft-a-day

Today’s post from Sarah Goldschadt, takes a look at what went into the design of Craft-A-Day, her new book from Quirk Books.

Katie Hatz, a designer (and photo retoucher!) at Quirk Books, designed my book Craft-a-Day, which is over 430 pages! She really nailed down a simple, fun design and I loved what she did with the cover!
I originally played around with a few different treatments.
But in the end, the mix of mini projects + felt type was the winner.
Katie was a trooper when it came to my design comments (I’ve worked as a graphic designer in magazine publishing for 10 years) and I don’t think I can thank her enough for how well everything turned out.
I did have a chance to design the promo postcards which was a lot of fun for me. Feel free to pick one and make some crafts at the Pins & Needles event on October 2nd from 7pm-9pm!
