Client: Simon Coster
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.
