Book – A Billion, Zillion Dollars | Simon Coster

Client: Simon Coster

Relationship: Existing client. Previous projects: Book – The Giant Picnic, Book – My Dinosaur is More Awesome

Date of project: October 2014

Duration of Project: One month

Background: Simon Coster is an illustrator and budding author – this is his third children’s story

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 continued on and produced print-ready artwork for the entire book so that it could be shown in context to interested publishers.

Extra value: The image for the cover had not been decided, so we produced a cover design using two of the existing images and then produced a creative treatment for the title.

Result: A bright and lively publication with a fun approach to the typography which reflects the fantastic story.
