In Praise of Sir Oracle: Joris Ammerlaan


So you've all heard me talk about my little buddy, Joris, right? Well today it's his birthday, and he is still trying to build his graphic design business, so I thought I'd share with all of you some of the coolnesses he has created.

As a designer, Joris  is thoughtful, choosing eye-catching, often minimalist designs. He is speedy, creative and reasonable, and if you are in the market for a book cover, poster, or other promotional materials, I strongly recommend him. But it is probably best to let his work speak for him.


Take this bit of cleverness for instance... The first pic is the front and back and the second is the same thing folded into a kite for distribution:



And then we have a few posters that COULD be book covers...






And a couple ACTUAL book covers...







So you can see his range—he does some amazing stuff. I encourage you to give him a shot if you have something you'd like designed!

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JORIS! I have a line-up of four score young blondes and brunettes between sixteen and nineteen and a half ready to give you your spankings!


More of Joris's work can be seen here.
