Designing Books with Sandy Cull and Imogen Stubbs
As much as we're doing ebooks, it's still very much about the object.
For this episode we brought two of Australia's best book designers together for a podcast-only conversation about their careers, their craft and how it all comes together.
Sandy Cull is a freelance book designer and a member of the Australian Book Design Hall of Fame, while Imogen Stubbs is an emerging designer and art director at Text Publishing. Coming at this conversation from different angles, they compare notes on the book design industry, the creative process and how they've worked with authors and publishers to create the perfect cover.
Sandy has been designing books for more than 20 years. In 2004 and 2005, she won the Best Designed Book of the Year at the Book Design Awards. In 2011 she was the 7th person to be inducted into the Australian Book Design Hall of Fame.
Imogen is the art director at Text Publishing, where she has worked as a book designer and production manager since 2011. In 2015 she was shortlisted for Young Designer of the Year at the Australian Book Design Awards. Previously she designed and art directed the literary magazines Harvest and the Key of Sea Journal.
