Book design

What client’s say


Hydraulic Press

From Smoke to Mirrors was a very ambitious publishing project. The book has a complex structure and a very broad range of material, and we set a demanding deadline. Ross Mills' simple and effective design helps make the book a pleasure to read. The stunning cover captured the author's vision of a technologically-advanced and climate-neutral future. Ross is a talented artist with a brilliant eye for detail and he delivered our book on time.

I have used Ross’s design skills on books and digital stories. The end result has always exceeded my expectations. Ross has a fine eye for detail and his work is original and creatively put together. I would recommend Ross to anyone looking for a book designer.

Ross has the knack of asking the right questions and making the right suggestions. The design he came up with, as well as being striking in itself, exactly captures my idea of the book. I was impressed by his meticulous approach and his sense of how things look on the page. For anyone considering self-publishing a book of poems I would thoroughly recommend Ross as the designer.
