What makes Steve Renick get up every morning? How does he manage, after having been designing books for quite a few years, to keep his projects innovative and his approach fresh? The answer is simple. He really, really likes what he does
Steve Renick wears many hats, and they all seem to fit him comfortably: He is art director at the University of California Press, owner of Anselm Design (the work of which was included in the AIGA "50 Books of the Year" in 1998), and he has been teaching design at the California College of Arts and Crafts (CCAC) since the late 80s. The course Renick teaches focuses on book design; he teaches it in cooperation with Tom Ingalls of Ingalls and Associates, who has extensive book publishing and packaging experience, and Michael Carabetta, creative director for San Francisco-based Chronicle Books.
