About the project
We took the printed version supplied by the customer and updated the cover design because the printed book cover didn't translate well to an ebook setting, with the heading text being too small when viewed on a small platform such as a phone or tablet. We then applied the Ebook Designer's Touch to the supplied manuscript so the book worked well in a standard (reflowing) ebook layout. This involved changing/simplifying some of the tables and images so that they were easily zoomable on devices. Once the design was complete, we did the ebook conversion and aggregated it on Apple, Kobo and Google Play.
