The Adobe suite of tools provides color management, vector tools and much more to develop and manage ideas for clients. Branding begins with customer ideas, sketches, and color choices. Each step through the process adds more to the final project result.

customer idea > their story > sketches > colors > design > logo

The QuarterBound Press imprint was designed using the Adobe suite of tools. Read on to learn more about how a logo is designed. 


Some prospective clients present a list of questions that result in misdirected time and effort. This problem is seen where business managers haven’t had enough experience with a design firm. The issue here is speculative work. When a prospective customer asks for information such as thoughts and ideas regarding their project, this is called speculative work. Speculative work is work that is requested from a designer without a contract in place (to protect the customer and the designer). Speculative work is, without question, a growing concern in the field of design.

     QuarterBound Press will always ask a client to sign an agreement prior to performing work. Every client is entitled to a quality product and Quarter Bound Press does not engage in work based on speculation.

The chief issue facing many authors is access to either the tools or someone with the tools to create a book that is designed professionally. QuarterBound Press works with the Adobe Suite and highly recommends that you have your book composited by an experienced designer. An experienced designer should either have a degree from a school of design, or has produced well-designed books through experience.
