Creative & Design Expertise
Book design is important. While a well designed book looks nice on the bookshelf, we design books to be read. In other others we design books that grab the readers attention, because - People DO judge books by their covers.
Secondly, we design books to make it easier for the reader to absorb the content. Why produce a book and then make it hard for the reader to get through it?
