@bookcoversdesign is a subdivision of NM Design, a studio run by Lisbon-based art director and photographer Nuno Moreira.
With over 15 years experience in the publishing industry and a particular passion for books, Nuno has been working continuously with a variety of publishers, small presses, literary agents and independent authors from all over the world.
As you might have seen, 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.
Our design influences are diverse and derive from areas of personal interest such as: cinema, painting, music, or architecture.
Our approach to book design emerges from conceptual thinking, enriched by a strong communication with our clients.
All our covers are conceived after reading a
manuscript and based on original artwork.
