CHECK MEOWT! Purr-oject Highlights January 2019

Dining Down Memory Lane

Shelley Howell came to FatCat seeking a custom book cover and wound up signing on with us for the whole kit ‘n’ kaboodle: book design & layout, cover design and custom illustrations. The book, “Dining Down Memory Lane,” is a collection of recipes from now-defunct Baltimore restaurants. Being a Baltimore-based design studio, we were thrilled about this unique project!

Shelley wanted the over-arching design and illustrations to take the reader back in time and evoke a sense of nostalgia. Our designer, Heather, managed just that with her thoughtful choice of fonts, her classic layout and by hand-sketching each one of the illustrations in  this timeless style.  She also added in period-based touches throughout.

I’m thrilled with my decision to utilize the 
creative services of FatCat Studios!The team transformed my manuscript for “Dining Down Memory Lane” into a book I can be extremely proud of. From our first phone call, I recognized that Valentia really understood the overall tone of my project and we just connected. She really made me feel like part of a family and always kept me in the loop. Of primary importance to me was my book’s cover and FatCat really nailed it!  The cover design pops and effectively communicates the book’s genre. The interior design is just fun and I think, a bit whimsical. Everyone tells me they love it! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the services of FatCat Studios to anyone looking for thoughtful and creative direction in graphic design. They are my go to!”
