Jim Krause

Jim Krause A designer, photographer, illustrator, and writer, Jim Krause's clients include Microsoft and Kodak.

Jim Krause lives in northwest Washington state and has worked as a designer, a photographer, an illustrator, and a writer (all four in a single day, surprisingly often) since the 1980s. Over the years, Jim has done jobs for a wide range of clients, large and small, including Microsoft, Kodak, Seattle Public Schools, Levi Strauss, and Washington Apples. In 1999, Jim began authoring books aimed at designers, photographers, and other creative professionals. Jim has since written 17 books, including Color Index, Idea Index, Design Basics Index, and other titles in his popular Index series. Several of Jim's books have been translated into multiple languages and all have a worldwide following. When he's not working, Jim can usually be found riding a bicycle or a motorcycle, hiking, drinking coffee, reading, taking pictures, or doing an art project of some kind.
