New website!


As promised, we have launched our new website this May. The goal with the site was to create a more service oriented experience and allow our customers a more thorough glimpse of our service offerings and selected work.

The site is fully responsive. Which means that you can comfortably access content on the site from your mobile phone, tab, pad, laptop or desktop computer. This was a prime focus for us as our old site was nearly unreadable on a phone or other handheld devices.

The work section allows you to comfortably sort between genres like fiction, non fiction, indie, and more. All work is attributed with the author, publisher and art director for the project. The work is viewable at a glance at a comfortable size. You will not have to deal with clicking on little thumbnails to reveal the full cover. You can easily share covers with others, buy the books by clicking on the shopping cart icon and view additional concepts and book interiors. We also have a section with a few book trailers we’ve worked on.


The service section is very easy and pleasant to navigate and read about the various things our studio is capable of handling.


We now showcase our typical rate packages so that customers can easily choose the fee structure that best suits their needs. We’ve found pricing to be a repetitive conversation we have with our prospective customers. Now it’s clear from the get go what can be expected and what each fee structure offers in terms of service options. We also have a FAQ section where you can get some basic information about our overall process and common terms that we will use throughout the process of designing your book.


Overall the site is dynamic and pleasant to navigate. We simplified our company logo, chose a more inviting, yet contemporary color palette, and selected Archer as the company font for its elegance and readability.


We’re proud of the site and hope it serves our customers better for years to come. Because we service a wide range of both indie publishers and trade houses, we wanted the overall experience to suit both audiences. You can now easily follow us on the various social networks that we post to and contact us to just say hello, or request a quote using our comprehensive quote form.


We hope you enjoy the site and its various features and ease of use. Please tell us if there is something that you feel would function more smoothly and we’ll be happy to improve upon the functions.


Enjoy!

New Year! New Logo! New Site!

2014 is a year of change for us. We’ve updated the look of our logo, which was originally designed by our good friend and business partner at the time of our founding, Scott Erwert. We’re also in the thick of the grueling and intensely exciting process of redesigning our website. Our focus with the new site is our array of services, showcasing more interior layout design work, book trailers, and a host of offerings for both indie pubs and mainstream houses. The new site will launch in early May, 2014. So look out for it!

Her is the logo modification. We’ve simplified the original mark and modernized the color scheme and font (Archer). The site will follow suit with these new colors. We’ll start posting some screen shots of the new site as it gets closer to launch day. So look out!
