Book – My Dinosaur is More Awesome | Simon Coster

Client: Simon Coster

Relationship: Existing client. Previous projects: Book – The Giant Picnic


Date of project: January 2014

Duration of Project: One month


Background: Simon Coster is an illustrator and budding author – this is his first published children’s book.

Brief: Simon needed print-ready artwork of his story and illustrations to show to publishers

Project: Pixooma were required to scan all of the author’s illustrations which were on cartridge paper and using photoshop convert the backgrounds to white without harming the colour balance of the imagery. We then took the author’s text and images, selected a suitable typeface and created layout designs for the client’s approval. Once approved we produced print-ready artwork for the entire book so that it could be shown in context to interested publishers.

Result: A bright and lively publication which several publishers showed interest in.  New York publishers Sky pony Press offered a contract and the book is due for publication in early 2015. Some online retailers have an incorrect visual of the cover that was produced in error by the publishers themselves, but this should be rectified soon.
