During a year of teaching English in the Czech republic, the Eastern European typography on book covers caught Gabriele Wilson’s eye. When she came back to the States she started a study Graphic Design at Parsons. Nowadays she’s a teacher there and runs her own design studio in New York focused on book cover design. We asked her if she sees trends in book design, not only in the visual sense but also in the way designers are approached for jobs. She shares her extensive experience with us. The journey towards the design is the most interesting part of the job for her. She loves to read the manuscripts and to do research about the diverse subjects of her projects. We think this kind of explains why she secretly wants to work for the FBI. Recorded at Tÿpo St.Gallen 2011, Switzerland.
