Straight off the boat from Croatia, Olga studied graphic design at the School of Visual Arts in New York and after an internship at Macmillan in her sophmore year, remained there until this day. She is currently serving as a VP, Creative Director of Wednesday Books, St. Martin's Griffin and Essentials and an Executive Art Director of the SMP Group. Olga’s work has been honored with awards from AIGA, The Type Director’s Club, and The New York Book Show. She has been published in 50 Books/50 Covers and Print, among others.
Olga and I chat about book cover designing, what the process looks like from start to finish, all of the parties that must sign off on a book cover, trends in book cover design, her fabulous Instagram book cover showcase account, and much more.
