Great illustrated covers from the Santa Fe Reporter
Moore has a great love for poster design, and it shows. Her covers are mini-posters, bold, pointed illustrations with complimentary type. At the same time they work brilliantly as engaging, timely covers, designed to drive circulation and appeal to the Reporter's readership.

Angela Moore: "My biggest influence is my experience as a painter and an editorial illustrator. It gives me a good understanding of the artists I work with and how to direct them."

Angela Moore: "My cover design philosophy is simple: clean, bold type that harmonizes and doesn't take away from the illustration. I'm a big fan of old Soviet propaganda posters as well as the poster masters from Poland like Stefan Norblin and Tadeusz Gronowski. Their posters perfectly blend image and art in a compelling, dramatic way."

Angela Moore: "My idol as far as how to work with illustrators effectively in a way that is inspiring and productive is Steven Heller, the longtime AD at The New York Times Book Review. I did several illustrations for him. He respected the intelligence and conceptual abilities of his illustrators and he never dictated concept. I'm always being told by illustrators how rare it is to work with someone who doesn't over direct, and I think that's why so many work for us even with our small budget."
