Wood Storms Wild Canvas is another international award winner! It won the Gold Medal for Canada West Non-Fiction, in the 2015 Independent Publisher (IPPY) Book Awards . This award’s criteria include three design-related features: first impression, cover design, and interior layout.
The designs for Wood Storms Wild Canvas began in the hands of two graphic designers; first Doug Galbraith, then David Carey, who did a considerable amount of excellent work with Gurdeep Stephens on the initial layouts. I finalized the book’s design by reworking the page layouts, refining the type, completely rebuilding the section on boats, and tweaking the cover design for print output.
