Christopher King will describe how to run an entire art department when you’re its only member, along with other lessons learned so far from a life in publishing—both in-house and outhouse. He is a graphic designer and illustrator. Formerly the art director of Melville House, he now operates an independent studio at the Pencil Factory in Brooklyn.
A Philadelphia native, Emily Mahon studied Graphic Design and Spanish at Penn State before making her way to New York. She became an Art Director at Doubleday in 2006. Emily will talk about her process, collaborations, current publishing trends, and inspiration for her recent work.
Jason Booher will reveal the secrets of his design, his failures, his love, and why he left the best design job in publishing. Jason has been designing book covers for 8 years, mostly at Knopf. He is now the art director of Blue Rider Press. He also teaches at Parsons School for Design.
