Food & Health

Cookbook designed for
Williams-Sonoma in the
United States.

Following a successful career with many of the UK’s most prestigious publishing houses, in 1999 Gaye was headhunted to be the V.P. and Creative Director for Weldon Owen Publishing in San Francisco. On arrival in the U.S Gaye’s first task was to revitalize the look of all the Williams-Sonoma cookbooks, by creating a fresh, modern aesthetic for those books. Her approach was to use clean and classic typography coupled with real food styling. For many of their books, especially the Entertaining series, Gaye often directed photography on location in real homes with the intention of creating a more relaxed and more natural lifestyle appeal.
