Diary Design

The design looks wonderful, I can’t believe you’ve made it look so good. Thank you so much.

A phone call from a delighted author

Akulah Agbami is a prize-winning writer and editor. Founder of BLACK* Artists on the Move, Akulah wanted to produce a 2022 Diary for the organisation, with poems, paintings and images to appear alongside the dates throughout the book.

A blank canvas

Akulah supplied a Word document with the basic pages laid out, but no real design ideas. From her initial instructions our design team got to work creating some sample pages. The only real guideline was that each month needed to have eight pages, four pages of dates, each opposite either a poem or picture.

Sourcing images

Some of the images supplied were fine for printing, but some needed better quality versions. While Akulah knew the images she wanted to use in the diary, better quality versions weren’t immediately available. With some work by our design team we were able to track down high resolution images of all the desired artwork so the printed version would be the best quality possible.

Diary cover

A vibrant cover

A beautifully vibrant and colourful image was supplied for the cover. A great rule to remember is to make the cover of your title impactful and relevant to the content. The cover is the promotional space to sell any book. If you get it right readers will pick up a copy and explore more. The cover for ‘BLACK* Artists on the Move’ is a master sales tool!
