Jill Dible Design

My Short Biography

DESIGNING AND PRODUCING BOOKS FOR OVER TWENTY YEARS

From an early age I've had an interest in art. Fortunately for me, the school system in my home town of Findlay, Ohio, offered a wonderful art curriculum. My high school design teacher was instrumental in my decision to further my art education at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, where I majored in art with an area of specialization in graphic design. In 1981, after completing an internship with Dana Corporation in Toledo, Ohio, I was offered a full time position in their graphics department, where I remained for two years. After my husband and I were married in 1983, we moved to Massachusetts, where he was stationed with the Army until 1987. During that time, I worked in the Boston area in various design studios as a graphic designer/production artist. Our family then relocated to Atlanta, where I was hired as Art Director at Longstreet Press. It was there I learned the book design trade. In 1998 I formed Jill Dible Design, specializing in book design and production.
