Cambridge Design Consultants have been involved in book design for over 25 years.
In the words of Richard Hendel:

Book design is an arcane subject…

There is an art and skill involved to successfully incorporating style, content, format and design. It is turning intangible components into a coherent product, which is aesthetic and comprehensible. Our expertise covers corporate and professional training material, all educational key stage levels, reference, humanities, travel, trade and coffee table publishing.

We offer a complete in-house consultancy and creative service to include:

•  Sample spreads

•  Mock-ups

•  Page layout

•  Cover design

•  Illustration

•  Artwork

•  Training materials

•  Full editorial & copywriting

By overseeing the complete project CDC will ensure consistency throughout and we can give you peace of mind knowing that we have perfected our skills over 25 years.

In the words of Jan Tschichold:

"…though largely forgotten today, methods and rules upon which it is impossible to improve have been developed over centuries. To produce perfect books these rules have to be brought back to life and applied.
