Children’s Book Design

Just like kids themselves, children’s books are at the same time challenging and rewarding. This market is super-competitive, so you need to be at the top of the game to get noticed. This means awesome illustrations and a design to match. We develop a cohesive product with coordinating interior and cover designs.

Services include: Layout and design of book to include client consultation, PDF questionnaire, two initial designs of 2-4 pages of interior, 1-2 front cover layouts for each interior layout for evaluation by client, full layout of book including all frontmatter and backmatter, formatting copyright page, title page design to match front cover, strict attention to typesetting details such as widows, orphans, line spacing, hyphenation, and kerning, up to two reasonable rounds of changes after proofreading, design of back cover and spine to match chosen front, bar code, and creation of press-ready PDF file set to printer’s specifications.

Note that while illustration is a completely different service, we can help you find the right talent to bring your project to life.
