Olga Grlic

Designer, Creative Director

Olga is a book designer and is currently a VP, Creative Director of St. Martin’s Griffin, Wednesday Books &  St. Martin’s Essentials, and an Executive Art Director for St. Martin’s Press. She has been with St. Martin’s Press since 2011.

One of her most appreciated book covers would be the 2013 novel Z, by Therese Anne Fowler. Art directors and editors often point to this book cover as a great example of something to aim for, impossible as that may be. In a 2021 interview she gave with The Avocado Diaries, Olga reminisced:

The publishing team launched it and didn’t like the title because it was a single letter, and the big guns worried that it would look strange and Zorro-like. But I loved the book and the title so much, and I had a very clear idea of what the cover should look like—a comp that actually ended up being approved for the final cover.

In 2021 she gave an interview with the podcast, Thoughts From A Page.
