Your book design journey

About us.

We love book design.
We have experience (lots!), covers, interiors, full book make-up, we’ve done it all.

Every brief is a blank canvas, a chance to create something unique and wonderful.

Our fee structure is clear and budgets are set, there are no extra costs.

We are responsive and always happy to talk, call us anytime.
Your design project is in creative, proven, safe hands.

Discovery

Who are the audience?
Who are your competitors?
What are the objectives?
Understanding this is crucial.
Now we can get started!

Design options

The exciting part, when at least 3 design options are presented. We ensure you have a variety of approaches.
We want to surprise and delight you.
We hold our breath!

Design
  • Concept examination and sketching before we go
    near a computer.

  • Image and typographic research.

  • The exploration of different design approaches.

  • We seek those ‘lightbulb’ moments, chase them down and refine them.

Feedback

Refinements to the design?
No problem, we expect changes and you can make as many as you need.

Sign off!

Hooray!
It may have taken weeks or months.
But it was worth it.  
Something fantastic is about to take flight.
Did someone say Champagne?
