Nuno Moreira – Designer

Creative art director and designer with 15-year experience working for publishers and independent authors worldwide.


We are a professional design studio based in Lisbon offering creative services in Book / Editorial design for several publishing houses, small presses, and independent authors all over the world.

We believe every book is different and should be addressed in a precise manner.

Our approach to book design is very instinctive and enriched by strong communication with our clients.

Every project has different needs and may require the use of different materials or visual approaches (manually or digitally executed); always striving for the most enticing end results.

Our work is varied and emphasizes mood, setting, atmosphere, tension, color dynamics, and striking type arrangements, bringing to each project a particular attention to detail and a unique result.

We believe every book is different and should be addressed in a precise manner. A book cover should be individualized and hopefully imaginative. Most importantly, we believe books should be evocative and stimulant to the eye, therefore addressed beyond literalism.

We are available for book cover design and interior book design/typesetting.

All our designs are conceived after reading a manuscript and based on original artworks.

I am not an author by trade, so to say that going into this process was intimidating would be an understatement. After deciding to start writing my Memoir, I was excited to get the ball rolling on all aspects of it. And being an artist myself, I naturally gravitated anxiously towards establishing pne of the most important aspects of my book- the cover. Most readers may assume that a veteran tat...

This was the second time working with Nuno, and once again, he did not disappoint! Love the cover, he was quick to answer any and all questions, and he worked through the minor details until everything was perfect. Great work, and I will definitely use Nuno again!

I engaged with Nuno and team for both cover & interior design. In brief... - The cover designs more than met my expectations; in fact, they handily outdid them. All the proposed designs were clearly differentiated stylistically (ie. very clear "paths" with essentially nil overlap or common threads), and each more than captured the 'spirit' of the book in their own unique way. - Communication...

Working with Nuno has been a pleasure and an asset to the overall quality of my book. Indeed, a great value on Reedsy, he caught my attention initially because, for the quality of the work he appeared to offer, he was not overcharging, not being greedy. You'll love his work ethic, patience, super-quick responses to your messages, and most importantly, his ability to create for you an outstandin...
