Palgrave / St. Martin’s Press

In addition to designing book covers we’ve also designed and produced close to 100 catalogs for many of our publishing clients, including Palgrave and St. Martin’s Press. In all cases, we designed the catalogs and carried the production from the receipt of text and images through to delivery of print-ready files to the printer.

Production of catalogs requires a completely different set of design muscles than working on a book cover or an identity package. There’s no poetry, no conceptualizing, no idea development and experimentation. There’s no lingering over ideas over the course of days or even weeks. It’s careful, methodical work that requires a laser-like attention to detail and solid blocks of time. And in order to work at anything faster than a snail’s pace it also requires knowing the production software (QuarkXPress once upon a time, now InDesign) like the back of your hand.
