Print design, a subset of graphic design, is a form of visual communication used to convey information to an audience through intentional aesthetic design printed on a tangible surface, designed to be printed on paper, as opposed to presented on a digital platform. A design can be considered print design if its final form was created through an imprint made by the impact of a stamp, seal, or dye on the surface of the paper.
Our designers got their start doing production work for print design, and while the world continues to evolve and strive to become paperless, print design still holds a special place in the minds of all of our designers.
Print layouts require an experienced eye for the details specific to page layout. Typography techniques are essential in print and have a direct impact on how the reader interprets content. Print layouts should be beautiful spatial designs, with stable colour combinations and a keen eye for the art of typsetting.

Effective communication starts with knowing who your audience is. There is intense competition for audience’s attention. In their first few seconds your audience will determine whether to stay and explore your content or leave. Whether it’s banners on a website to street flyers, if they stay you only have a few more seconds to secure their attention by conveying an overall understanding of your subject matter. If there was one thing you could say on the poster or signage, what would it be? Select a statement, photograph or diagram that is sure to attract your audience’s attention.
Together we can create the image that will work best for catching your audience’s attention and get your book noticed. Contact DesignEdge to begin your self-publishing and graphic design project today. Here are a few items that are important aspects for your book cover design to be effective, it should:
Enhance the salability of your book. Does the cover design make a person want to pick up the book and buy it? Will booksellers be proud to display it in their storefront?
Incorporate the book’s theme. Does the book cover design effectively convey the authors “voice” and style? Will it appeal to the author’s target audience?
Be creative. Is the cover design a different and unique expression? Is it tasteful?
Continue to express through the interior formatting a feeling of know, like and trust with the author and subject matter.
Offer interior formatting with a feeling of comfort by way of typeface, line spacing, margins and photo placement that enhances the over all reading experience.
