Wait. Who?

Giles Hoover, introduced.


Untangle the ribbon

Giles has worked with clients ranging from self-publishers to worldwide corporations and universities, taking the disparate pieces that make up a book’s identity and turning them into something that leaps off the shelf — sometimes including original photography. His mission is to keep learning how to do that better, day by day, project by project.


Book design and fine photography

A lifelong learner, Giles constantly tries to add rather than subtract. Sanguine in philosophy, Giles has kept on top of the changing technology needed to produce great books, great imagery, and satisfied clients.
