Book Design

Kevin Barry (The Solar Circus and Echoes of a Natural World art )

Since 2020 I’ve designed all of First to Knock’s books from the interiors to the covers. Together with FTK head honcho Michael P. Daley and some incredible artists, the goal with the book covers is to avoid overly trendy graphic design and aim for something that feels familiar but surprising and impactful. With the interiors, the goal is a pleasureable and uninterrupted reading experience.

I’m a designer with a background in photography, publishing, and librarianship.  

Most recently, I was an in-house Designer at Harvard Innovation Labs. Freelance clients include Hindman Auctions (Freeman’s | Hindman), Pillar VC, First to Knock,  Jay Youngdahl, and more.

Before my career in design I was an academic librarian at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

In my spare time I maintain a personal art practice that is based in photography. Since 2017, I have published and edited Challenger, a BMX magazine that takes multiple forms. Its current form is a monthly subscriber only newsletter.
