Judge a book by its cover?

Kat Morrell and Sophie O’Rourke (Creative Services Manager and Business Development Manager of emc design)

Taking Place: Willow Lecture Theatre, Oxford Brookes University

People say not to judge a book by its cover, but if you had the choice between two books with exactly the same story inside, both identically priced, the only difference being that just one has a beautifully designed cover - which would you stretch to pick up off the shelf first?

emc design is one of the UK’s leading design agencies for the publishing industry.   They specialise in beautiful design for ELT, education and trade publishers.  Today they will be telling us the story behind those lovely designs.
