World’s Greatest Gymnasts!

This past August, the U.S. women’s gymnastics team became overnight celebrities and I churned out an overnight book: this 48-page Scholastic reader, produced with packager Shoreline Publishing. Instant book! Well, more like three weeks from contract to upload — still pretty darn fast!

Now maybe trendy, overnight sensations that won’t backlist aren’t a high priority for you at Disney. But sometimes, getting your next award-winning-classic-to-be out the door super fast and efficiently can be just as important. In either case, your talented but perhaps literally over-“booked” in-house art team may need a little help and that’s where I come in

“Whether for a simple board book or a complicated, 300-page, illustrated book, Carling Design is always the first call we make. Shoreline has worked hand-in-mouse with Carling for more than ten years and they have never delivered anything less than superb work...and on time and on budget. I personally also worked with Tom while I was at Sports Illustrated and can also highly recommend him for magazine projects as well. Plus, along with being a fine designer, he’s also one of the nicest people you’ll ever work with in this business!”
