PORTFOLIO

Book Design


Writing a book is both a huge undertaking and a great accomplishment. It is also a rewarding, creative process that doesn't end for the author once the manuscript is finished. Now you need a designer who can help your book reach your audience and stand out from the crowd.

OceanWild Design works with self-published authors to produce books that look professional and indistinguishable from books published by traditional publishing houses — and is also skilled in enhancing your text with graphics, photos, artwork, text ornaments and illustrative icons, as needed.


  Professionally-crafted pages — while giving you, the author, the final say on editing and design.


  Quark or InDesign is used for book design layouts and composition. Photos and other images are handled with Photoshop or Illustrator.


  Rest assured knowing that your costs are not going to change throughout the process. Interior book design quotes are based on receiving an edited manuscript as clean and as polished as possible. So unless there are extensive changes to the actual manuscript, the quote will be the final fee.


  You will not be abandoned when your book goes to press! After printer hand-off and once you've received the printer's proof, OceanWild Design will be on-hand to work with the printer to handle any pre-press and press check support you may need or to send any necessary replacement pages.


  You retain ownership of your book design; ownership transfers to you upon final payment in full. No royalties or hidden fees are involved.

BOOK COVER DESIGN

Softcover with or without flaps? Hardcover with printed or plain casewrap with dust jacket? Foil stamping? Embossing? ...whichever you choose, you should have a professionally-designed cover that is striking and commands attention from even the most reluctant of readers. OceanWild Design can create a compelling, engaging cover that gets your book noticed — whether it is on the bookshelf at a bookstore or viewed online at thumbnail-size.


AUTHOR PRESS KIT & BOOK PROMOTION

Your book’s press kit (bio, book synopsis, press release, sample chapter, interview questions, contact info, book review excerpts, photos) is the major marketing package that tells a variety of audiences about your book and makes it easier for others to report on it and/or promote it. Strengthen your press kit and your marketing efforts with well-designed assets that complement your book's brand: Author Business Card, Author Stationery, Bookmark, Custom Insert, Brochure, Rackcard or Flyer, Postcard or Direct Mail Piece, Poster, Author Website.


PUBLISHING LOGOS

For authors who have also setup a publishing company, OceanWild Design offers design of publishing logos (those icons typically displayed on the spine of a book, title page, copyright page and back cover). Publishing logos are a great extension of your book's brand and make a self-published book look more professional.
