My name is Sarah Beaudin, I'm a book designer from Canada who has recently run away with the circus. (Yes, really.) I operate my design studio out of a big yellow suitcase, I move to a new city (or country!) every couple months. Travelling around the world affords me a unique perspective on global trends in both design and storytelling.

I have ten years of design experience, a Bachelor of Fine Arts from York University, and a post-graduate certificate in Book and Magazine Publishing. I've worked with individuals, small presses, and one of the largest independent book publishers in Canada, creating well over 100 covers and thousands of marketing materials.

I stand proudly by the fact that people do judge books by their covers — it has a direct influence on sales. But a book cover is more than just part of the marketing plan, a book cover is where your story begins.
