Engaging and informing the reader

The New York Times Book Review

Li’l Robin is frequently invited to serve as “guest” art director for various sections of The New York Times, including the Book Review and Science Times sections.

In each case, we create engaging, original art direction while working within the existing New York Times design grid. We provide a consistent look throughout the sections and commission illustrations that accompany the articles. We also design and art direct distinctive cover art for the sections.

Each section poses its own unique challenges, depending on the content and the speed with which the work must be produced. Most importantly, each assignment gives us the opportunity to work with an impressive array of talents within the Times universe––designers, illustrators, editors, and line producers.
