Meet Tyler Ottinger


Artist’s representation of Tyler Ottinger

Tyler serves as the Senior Design Manager at OSV. He leads the design team in the creation and layout of all things design, such as marketing campaigns, publications and book covers.

The design cycle of your book cover starts at the Immersion meeting with the publishing committee where we discuss titles and possible cover ideas. The designer then works with the Acquisitions Editor to create several cover options for each title and submits them to the committee for approval and review. We use sample chapters and manuscripts to get the feel and theme for your title. Have an idea for your next cover? Let us know (no promises that we’ll use every suggestion).

Tyler joined OSV in 1997 and finds inspiration for design all around. Known for having a critical eye for typography, he tends to drive his family crazy by naming the fonts used on TV and movies credits.  Tyler tries to stay current in trends with the help of his four daughters (pray for him). He enjoys the great outdoors and time spent fellowshipping with other men who challenge him to live a life pleasing to God.
