Books that fit in your back pocket, lo-fi production value, straight and honest guides to anything from Problem Eating to Sports Psychology.

Major client of ours, Icon Books, do one thing better than anyone else in our opinion – series non-fiction. They’re hugely successful Graphic Guides series gave rise to a new series idea in 2010 – The Practical Guides.

We jumped at the chance to pitch for this, and immediately came up with a clean, info-graphics look that hit the mark straight away. Low cost but high impact, the cover designs have since been used internationally and on 35 titles in the UK alone.

We’re still going strong and love to do these covers. Check out Icon’s list, they’re part of the Independent Alliance along with names like Canongate and Faber so their publishing pedigree is right up there.
