For The Love of Nature

For the Love of Nature, Page Design and Layout

I came to Fiona with a difficult assignment: to design a book that will be a proper, long-lasting memorial to two of the greatest naturalists who ever lived. The technical and artistic challenge was huge. The book had to present history, biography and wonderful art together in a way that would attract and inform readers of all ages. From the start,  Fiona took a firm hold on the project and moved it forward in a very professional manner, while making sure all the many details were taken care of. Her artistic sense was superb and each page was brought as close to perfection as possible. We worked well together throughout and I was able to benefit regularly from her extensive knowledge of many aspects of the publishing business. I recommend Fiona highly as a book designer to my colleagues in academia and to all others who want to publish a great book. British Columbia has a real gem here.

Fiona Raven is the best. She’s fun and easy to work with. But more important is her depth of knowledge, experience, and professional-quality results. For my money, Fiona’s the obvious choice when I need a book designer.

Fiona was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is always ready, willing and eager to satisfy—no matter how many revisions are made at the last minute. Her creative design skills are apparent in the layout of our book. Her work speaks for itself. This is our second time having a book designed by Fiona and I look forward to working with her again in the future.

Love Letters to Art, Page Design and Layout
Fiona has worked with me on two books. In both of these projects she injected a feeling of confidence that had me resting easy. Making a book is a complex business with lots of detail. She’s careful, thorough, sensitive, informed of industry standards and interacts in a firm, timely way with the others who are needed to see a book to its delivery. She has a designer’s eye and a systematic work ethic to be admired.
