Award Winning Design and Illustration


Logo for Mountain Mind translation services

I can provide design and illustration for projects large and small, from logos, fliers and leaflets for print or pdf download, to complex book projects. My first book project was Thinking Through School by Anne de A’Echevarria, which won a national award sponsored by The Times Educational Supplement, the Education Resources Association (ERA) Book of the Year Award – see book design page for more details.

I can also design schemes for website design, or if you require a WordPress site, can design and set up the whole site for you, then assist you in learning how to add content and take it over from there – see here for more details.

I design print for sports clothing too, like these examples

Testimony from Chris Kington, Proprietor, Chris Kington Publishing, Cambridge: “Geoff Read worked with various of my authors as designer and illustrator. What added value he gives! He is one of those very special professionals who really does work hard to get inside the mind and wishes of his clients/collaborators and adds a new dimension to their thinking in the process. Diligent, thoughtful and often challenging (in the nicest possible way) he really is the designer I hoped would work on my most thought- provoking titles.”

Testimony from Tim Davies, Independent Consultant to the Publishing Industry: “As far as the layout is concerned, I think it’s excellent; far better than the majority of the AIs I see.”
