Nuno Moreira

Nuno Moreira – Designer

Creative art director and designer with 17+ years of experience working for publishers and independent authors worldwide.

Overview

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.

Brilliant at cover design and thoroughly competent at interior design. Also responsive. And courteous, though unafraid to challenge me when he/they thought I was missing the mark. Hope to be a client again soon.

I am obsessive about details; very particular about excellence. So you can imagine it was a great leap of faith working with Nuno and putting my vision into his hands to crystallize. It was a bit terrifying to trust his creative genius for the artistry of the book and not force upon the process my own artistic interpretations and instincts. What I can say is that the result is phenomenal. Even...

Nuno was professional, insightful and flexible. He delivered a superb product from top to bottom. Handing a stranger your book and asking them to bring it to life through a cover can be daunting, but he exceeded my expectations. The cover came out amazing, and the interior formatting is flawless. In addition to delivering a great product, he offered pieces of advice that were both helpful and u...

In an age of optimization and designing to market, Nuno's team's approach is a refreshing change of pace, actually engaging with the book's contents and using the cover to tell a story about what might lie between. The diligent, quick communication and professionalism were bonuses on top. Nuno is everything you want in a designer.

Nuno, unlike most other cover designers, will do two things: read your novel and then prepare covers according to his understanding of it. He read my book, an unorthodox dystopian satire, and provided 4 cover options each with explanations for why he felt they worked. They were all astounding and his understanding of my writing was razor sharp. I chose my favorite and his team set out to typese...
