Books we have helped to design
We've helped to produce over 2000 books and worked with over 50 publishers since 2012
Here at whitefox, we do judge a book by its cover, because we know how important design is. Graphics, illustrations, choice of paper – they all tell a story, your story. Whether you’re a brand, thought leader, author or entrepreneur, whitefox will manage every detail of the book design process on your behalf while ensuring you have creative control in making the design of your book as attractive and appealing as it deserves to be.
And the design services don’t have to stop once your book is published! If you need an author website or some branded assets, whitefox can connect you with the perfect publishing professionals.

Cover design services
If you’re a brand, entrepreneur or thought leader, there’s a chance your audience is time-poor and knowledge-rich, and they’re going to want to know how they will benefit from reading your book the moment they see it on the bookshelves or online. Designing a striking book cover is much more difficult than it may appear, but with whitefox’s team of award-winning book designers, your book won’t just stand out from the shelves or the Amazon search results – it’ll leap out into their basket.
Each book cover requires a unique approach and specific expertise. After talking to you and the whitefox team about the project, and guided by a detailed brief (which we will help you create), your book designer will create a cover that sends a unique message to your target reader. Book designers know how to perfect the balance between typography and imagery, how to devise a book cover that will look great both in-store and online as a tiny thumbnail image, and they know the importance not just of the front cover, but of the back, the spine and the logo.
Typesetting is the vital element of the publishing process that will make your book look sleek and professional. If you have a manuscript of unedited block text, a typesetter will take it and put it on the page in a way that will grab the reader’s attention and keep it there, ensuring the inside of your book is eye-catching, consistent and readable.
Illustrated books are becoming more and more popular with the huge rise in non-fiction, and including images in the pages of your book makes it more accessible, browsable and attractive. Whether your contains illustrations, graphics or graphs, it’s important to consult a designer so that your book gets the results it deserves.
What can at first seem like a simple process requires a highly trained set of eyes. How do you source the right illustrator to create eye-catching imagery for your book? How do you clear permissions to use copyrighted pictures? How do you put together plate sections of photos with experience-enhancing captions? How do you find the experts who can help create charts, maps, simple cartoons or complicated diagrams? We can put you in touch with someone who’ll answer all your queries and help you produce a beautiful, bespoke book, and we’ll do it quickly, professionally and to your unique brief.
