Frank Gutbrod

Graphic Designer for Authors

Frank Gutbrod is celebrating over 30 years in the design industry. He was born and raised in Stuttgart, Germany… (Yes, he has a German accent!). His Dad owned a printing company, introducing Frank to print and design at a young age. At the age of 28, he got married and his wife brought him as a “souvenir” to the States.

Frank got his start in American design by working as a graphic designer for Kregel Publications, learning the tricks of the trade in book cover and book interior design. Twenty years later, Frank has designed hundreds of book covers and interiors while moonlighting as a freelance designer. His clients are publishing houses, university presses and self-publishing authors. He lives with his wife, two kids, a cat and a dog in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
