Timothy Shaner and Christopher Measom started Night & Day Design in 1989. They have designed everything from magazines to perfume bottles to film titles. For the past 15 years, however, their concentration has been book design with a special eye toward editorial.
Timothy Shaner began his design career at Hearst Magazines in the promotions department. He moved to book design in 1991 and has had a hand in designing well over 100 books. He is the design originator of Welcome Books' Little Big Book series which has 1.5 million copies in print.
Christopher Measom has been a freelance writer/photographer since 1994. He was Senior Writer at the travel newsletter Out & About for ten years and had a monthly column called New York Metro Page in the now-defunct Hero magazine. He has edited several books including Paris Wish You Were Here!, The Little Big Book of Ireland, Anonymous: William Shakespeare Revealed, and War Horse: The Making of the Motion Picture.
