Textbook Typesetting and Cover Design

I was approached by the client to work closely alongside a number of authors and editor in producing their first full-length academic textbook. A key aim in the project was to give the science publication a robust but visually attractive character.

Page layout

We adopted a two-column approach for the majority of the body text with sub-headings spanning both columns. This made the publication comfortable to read with short line length while also making scanning easier. Full colour pages were made the most of with attractive title pages and engaging illustrations.

Cover design

I drafted a number of cover designs for the clients’ consideration. The dynamic nature of the one decided upon was not only visually appealing but also carefully reflected the content of the book.
