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.

Nuno was professional in my interaction with him and delivered ahead of schedule. He presented me with several options of book covers, and each had elements from my book. He took the time to read the novel and extract from it the symbolism and meaning that reflected on the final covers. I'm very happy with the final result and will definitely be reaching out to him again in the future.

What I love about Nuno is he is genuinely committed to getting to the best outcome for the book, and that is the entire focus of his approach. Following his process with enormous creativ...
