Cover for Kingdom

One of my favourite covers. Ever. I know I designed it and it may sound presumptuous, but I absolutely LOVE this cover. In any case, it is the image that I acquired that is so lovely.

Farm Logo

A logo I designed for an American farm. I like this horse logo, but the clients wanted a more simple look. I designed another logo for them with the "W" from Williams.

Cover for Echo Soundings

I wanted this cover to illustrate a series of waves, since "soundings" is a nautical term in which sonar is used to measure depth. And echoing connotes reflection and repetition. Even the scroll like feature around the subtitle mirrors itself in a reflection.

Here is the book description: "Poems sound. Poetry is the art of listening. In Echo Soundings Jeffery Donaldson brings together essays written over two decades, including reviews, think pieces, arguments and homages, that listen for and to major and minor voices in Canadian and American verse, both modern and contemporary. Echo Soundings demonstrates that every poem is a community of voices, a conversation, an exchange. Poets talk about the world partly by talking to one another. At times broadly speculative, at times meticulous in their attention to detail, Donaldson’s essays are united by a common concern for our habits of listening and how they might be fathomed by poetry’s deeper soundings."

Cover for Easy Fix

Fall 2014 cover for Easy Fix, by Blair Trewartha. The themes in this collection are related to loneliness, mental illness, poverty, and the disenfranchised. I wanted the cover to feel dark and gritty.

Toronto Reading

I will be reading at Another Story Bookshop
Wednesday October 29th @ 7:00 pm.
Ariel Gordon, Patricia Young, Jim Johnstone, and Dawn Kresan
315 Roncesvalles Ave. Toronto, Ontario.

Excited to be reading with friends, and listening to them read from work that I have helped bring into being (in my small way). Also fun to go back to the bustling city of Toronto, if only for a short time!

Ariel has been a guest blogger for the National Post and will be featured on the 49th Shelf’s upcoming installment. Ariel will be in Ontario on a cross-province tour, starting in Windsor, then onward to Waterloo, Kitchener, Toronto, and Kingston. She'll be reading October 23th 7pm at the Capitol Theatre, along with Rosalind Knight, Mary Ann Mulhern, Chris Turner, and Susan Holbrook.
