Award winning design

Our design is led by award-winning book designer, Natalie Winter. Natalie and her team offer thoughtful and creative solutions to even the trickiest brief. They are committed to achieving excellent design solutions for our clients.


Natalie is experienced in working across all genres from literary fiction to non fiction, young adult books to four-colour pictorials and cookbooks to children’s picture books.

Book Covers

We create beautiful book covers that meet your brief and exceed your expectations. We can create front covers only (for ebooks) or full covers (front cover, back cover and spine). We recommend and advise on lamination and special finishes such as embossing.


Working with Natalie on cover design is a collaborative, structured process. We work to your brief (you fill out our form in which we ask you all the right questions), but bring our professional experience to ensure that your cover will hit the right mark with its target audience. The final decision on cover choice is yours.


Design And Document Creation

The team is experienced in creating internal design templates that suit each individual book perfectly. Our layout designers are attentive to detail, ensuring the delivery of high quality page proofs.


We create final print-ready PDFs which meet the technical specifications of the relevant printer. For illustrated books, we ensure images are prepared to the right size and resolution, and we can manage the colour proofing process. For ebooks, we create epub or mobi files as required. All final files, including cover, are provided to the author.

Marketing & Publicity Materials for Authors

We create beautiful, compelling pitch documents for submission to domestic or international publishers or other organisations for sponsorship.


We create bespoke materials – whatever you need. We work to your brief, but use our experience to help you produce materials that work to promote and sell your book, such as Press Releases, Business Cards, Posters, Business Cards and Websites.


Design Mentoring for Self Publishing Authors

Natalie provides one-on-one advice, feedback and technical assistance to authors designing their own books. She helps authors to ensure that their books meet professional standards, while empowering them to learn how to do it themselves.
