How to be a Civil Servant

Book cover design, typesetting

Book cover design, typesetting and production for the new edition of How to be a Civil Servant by Martin Stanley.

Cover design

Having been previously published under an alternative cover, the new design needed to stand out as a fresh edition. The book offers advice for anyone starting out or looking to pursue a career in the civil service, who are likely to be university graduates. With this in mind, we used a bold, contemporary graphic to grab attention and appeal to younger audiences.


Using our experience in book design, we created a clean page layout using a classic typeface. Clever use of space meant we could avoid overcrowding information and give content room to breathe, making the book an easier and more enjoyable read.
