New Artist / Nik Keevil

Nik Keevil has been at the forefront of British book cover design for the last 20 years. He has worked for many leading publishing houses on fiction and non-fiction titles and is noted for his photo-illustrations and CGI work.

As a qualified graphic designer, Nik's beginnings were as a layout artist so the use of imagery with typography was instilled in him from the start. Today Nik uses his skills in photography in many of his designs, He finds that this gives a sense of realism that’s exciting to work with. He has his own photographic studio and his cover design solutions frequently incorporate his own typographic work. Digitally anything is possible and with additional after effects, texturing and detailing the imagery can be pushed even further depending on the needs of the brief.

Nik now wants to further develop his work in the book publishing field but also to broaden the types of client he works with into advertising, design and magazine editorial in particular. Nik is available for commission now. Take a look at Nik's folio and please mail or call us if you'd like to work with him.
