Designwest were first approached by June Duffy in 2102 when she visited our studio looking for information and advice in creating a custom designed childrens book. It was the start of a very enjoyable process which in the end saw the creation of Junes first published childrens story book design ‘I’ve Seen Granddad’ which is set to be the first of many! The book design itself required custom illustrations which were created by Dublin based illustrator Ollie Williams who was managed and briefed by the designwest team. Then when the character illustrations were complete we went to work on using the characters to create the actual page designs using vector image backgrounds and the text provided by June. The end result is a wonderful & vibrant childrens book design which has been widely well received by children and adults alike. We thoroughly enjoyed working with June on this project because of her immense positivity and the fact she is always laughing and smiling – and we are already looking forward to working on the next installment for her next book.
