Meet the Design and Production team here at DiscoverKelpies!

Posted on 02/07/2014 in Fun Stuff

Hello everyone!

As some of you may have noticed, last Wednesday the Floris Books Design and Production team stormed the marketing office and declared that the day would be our very first Twitter takeover! And from now on we’ll be popping up on your Twitter and Facebook newsfeeds every Wednesday, with the occasional appearance on the KelpiesTeen website and Pinterest.

Our aim? We want to bring you a behind-the-scenes look at our work as a Design and Production team in an independent publishing house. We have so many brilliant designers and illustrators that work with us to create beautiful content – and we want to shout about them! We’ll be showcasing our illustrators, sharing exclusive interviews, sneak peeks at preliminary sketches, and lots of other pieces of exciting content. We’ll also be dispelling the mystery around how books go from being digital files on a computer to real books on bookshop shelves. To top it all off, there will also exciting competitions popping up every now and then.

Phew! That’s a lot of excitement coming your way! “But who is it that is sharing these brilliant things with us?” I hear you ask!

Well, Design and Production at Floris Books is a two-woman team, with Leah McDowell as Design and Production Manager and Clare Fotheringham as Production Assistant. Between us we prepare around 120 books a year for print which includes everything from typesetting and cover design, to print buying and scheduling! We get to work on some really great projects with some of the best illustrators in the industry, so you can understand that we are just bursting to talk to everyone about all of it! Keep your eyes peeled for #FlorisDesign on @DiscoverKelpies and @KelpiesTeen on Wednesdays to get involved!
