Children’s Picture and Chapter Book Design

Publishing children’s books can be both challenging and rewarding — kind-of like the kids themselves. 😉 This genre 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 creative interior and cover designs that engage young readers and encourage a love of books.

Services may include: Client consultation, PDF questionnaire, storyboarding, coordination with illustrator, schedule management, layout and design of book’s cover and interior, jacket design, creative endsheet design for hardcover books, consultation on printing options, press-ready files, and book images for promotional usage.
