Return to Graphic Artist

Book Cover Design

G. Wells Taylor wanted to be a fine artist when he first started out, but economic realities, and the technical changes to the media landscape made him rethink his plan. So he stored his paint brushes, and began a study of Journalism and English Literature in college and university.

Taylor quickly realized that the evolving graphic and design software used by newspapers and publishing houses allowed for both written and visual expression. This overlap of media forms was completed when matched to his emerging  embrace of fiction writing.

Then came the eBook Revolution.

Taylor has since designed and created the covers for his entire catalog of books, along with accompanying graphics for web display, and other promotional purposes. As the Internet grew, so did his job requirements which came to include the creation of digital animations that required character and setting design, props and later still, memes and additional iconography that were used in social media.
