Whether you have an in-house design team or outsource your book design to freelancers, have you built a framework of best practices to yield the best results possible?

This session will cover how to:

  • Find and evaluate the best talent
  • Build a structural framework where creative talent can flourish
  • Communicate effectively with creative staff
  • Foster a culture that attracts creative talent your way
  • Optimize the process from start to finish – saving time and money

We all want the books we produce to be meaningful and effective with our target audience. Don’t waste your editorial efforts on poorly executed visual communication strategy or outcomes.
