Design for Childrens Books

Beautiful design and cost-effective strategies.

We can help you with all aspects of your children’s book project. If you have questions about the most cost-effective sizes or page counts for specific printing methods, or how to prepare image files for the best results, he can guide you through these issues and all the stages of the production process.

Benefit from Experience

Our designer, Michael Rohani, is an experienced children’s book designer. He also has experience working with illustrators and is himself an illustrator who has illustrated published children’s books. This gives him a unique understanding of both the illustration and design process. We recommend getting Michael involved in the process before final illustrations are created to make sure the illustrations will fit the book requirements.

Michael has designed hardcovers, paperbacks, jackets, cases, and page layouts with special features such as fold out pages, board book pages with die cut windows, and more. He can also help with state-side and offshore print management and quality control to take the worry out of the production process.

Give us a call today to discuss your project and options. Some samples of Michael’s work are shown below.
