The Art Order - Can Personal Work Pay? Judges

Lauren Panepinto

Iím the Creative Director for Orbit Books and Yen Press. I was in charge of Trade Paperback design at The Doubleday Publishing Group, and before that I designed covers for St. Martinís Press and Picador Books. Iíve been designing book covers for 7+ years, but Iíve been a geek forever. I cut my teeth working at comic book stores in NYC (Jim Hanleyís Universe) and Boston (Comicopia) through high school and college, Iím a connoisseur of sci-fi and fantasy movies (Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Dune, Matrix, and any bad vampire movie are tops), books (I can name names for paragraphs here, but letís just say Iíve read all the Dune books and leave it at that), and comic books (Transmetropolitan, Sandman, Hellboy, X-Men, Watchmen, and many more.) Iím very excited to finally get a chance to combine my love of this genre and my love of design.
