Book Design and Publishing Options

All your hard work is done. One of the best things you can do is choose an expert designer that will produce strong visuals to tell your story and make an impact on potential readers. Have you decided whether to go the traditional publishing route or self-publish? Answers below…

You put hundreds of hours into your story. It is like a child that you birthed, nurtured, saw through blood, sweat, and tears, and finally brought to maturity.  Its your story and it deserves the best cover within your budget. We have budget options from a standard cover to a premium cover package depending on your needs.  When you contact us, you can be certain you are entrusting your work to an expert design process that will produce fresh visuals you can get excited about!

We go through a rigorous cover concepting process that comes out of hearing what is important to you and more about your story. This can all be achieved remotely, over the phone (though we are glad to meet in person as well).  We work to make the process as joyful as possible. We do hardcover and paperback design, ebooks, and can do your interior as well.  All with a final file you approve that gets sent to the printer.

Your completed design will be as impactful as any cover in Barnes and Noble or other retail outlets. We have created hundreds of covers for independent authors and signed authors with publishers and can help you through the design process. We are available to publishers as well with reasonable rates.

What are the advantages and disadvantages to self-publishing and the traditional route through a major publisher? Here is a great article on Forbes by Nick Morgan comparing the two paths.

We look forward to helping you tell your story with strong design and visuals that will make an impact on your readers for years. 

We also do editorial, illustration, and ghostwriting.  Contact us today.

Designing Your Life

“It surrounds us, binds us, and flows through us.” Oh wait, that is the Force. But if Yoda had been talking about design, he would be close. Our planet is full of amazing design (think about the beauty of a nautilus or look up Fibonacci numbers/ratios). Great design has both an artistic and scientific component. Take color theory for example. There are values on a color wheel that scientifically complement one another. Our eyes see these as harmonious and we are attracted to them. An expert designer is a master of color and uses it to strengthen or evoke a mood. Purple may seem more spiritual or sacred, whereas red evokes power or boldness or alarm. And there are thousands of combinations.

A great brand designer and strategist is an avid observer of life, a modern-day Da Vinci in heart and purpose—an alchemist of creativity and science. The designer continually remains a sponge to learn about the world in every form—history, trends, cultural and social issues, technology, future trends, education, corporates and non-profit, finance, geography, fashion, literature, films, music, science, artists, philosophers, and much more! Why? Because a successful brand strategist is pioneering, influential and hungry to communicate with greater connection and effectiveness to a diverse world.

Design can be both timeless and trendy. And it tends to be cyclical. What was beautiful in 1975 was reviled for a couple of decades and then saw a resurgence. While many color and design rules can be bent (or even broken) a designer stays on the pulse of what is influencing the target demographic and deploys solutions that best communicate in visual ways that help the client.
