Book Design

We design and produce illustrated books and book covers for publishing companies and institutions. Our print and ebook projects cover a wide range of subject matter including arts & crafts, architecture, home & garden, urban planning, content marketing, financial services, and education.

We specialize in highly visual "coffee-table" books, as well as creative "how-to" and technical, data-driven books. Design of these types of books requires a sophisticated typographical approach, as well as careful consideration of page and chapter structure, pacing, and usability.

Book design clients include Rockport Publishers, McGraw Hill, and the Urban Land Institute. Recent book projects range from arts & crafts titles Paper Puppet Palooza and Who's Your Dada to urban development books such as Getting Real About Urbanism, Pedestrian- and Transit-Oriented Design and Building Healthy Places.

Each book design or book cover design is unique and customized, based on our understanding and research into the subject, the market, and a client's branding and style guides. If you have a book design, cover design or creative direction project you'd like to discuss, please contact us.
