Julia Collins is a writer and editor who believes every story—regardless of subject matter—can be told in a compelling way. She has written on topics from global finance to girls at risk in South Central LA to antique fire engines. She conceptualizes, drafts, and reengineers text with an eye on Rick’s process to ensure the best rapport between a book’s subject and design. Julia makes every word count so that your book communicates its content and purpose beautifully. 




Rick Rawlins is known for his thoughtful approach to graphic design and his personal, collaborative style. He immerses himself in the content of each book, meticulously researching and amplifying crucial elements of a subject to pull in the reader. For him there is no boilerplate in book design: every title is unique, every page matters, and every design decision is purposeful. The resulting books are artful, soulful, and enriched with meaning. They, like Rick, offer more than what is expected.




Susan McNally makes certain that every book reaches its full potential. As production director she closely oversees each phase of book making, orchestrating countless details while never losing sight of client expectations, schedule, budget, and audience. Susan’s editorial knowhow and understanding of design benefit every project.
