Client: Inkshares

Inkshares is a new model of publishing house that uses a crowdfuding model to prove viability prior to printing. Books are published with an audience already in place, avoiding the common fate of books that lose money or are remaindered, and authors enjoy a royalty rate of 50% to 70%, well about the 6-8% typical for a first time author. As the startup's design partner, we create covers and interiors for funded titles, and aid in art direction and technical assistance for their publishing program, often working directly with authors to create a design consistant with their vision for the book.
