January 2012Every business starts somewhere. Every idea has its spark - that light-bulb moment.
We started with a questionWhat would it look like if we ripped up the traditional publishing model and started again? With a flurry of ideas, a new start-up was born - with the aim of being the best of a new generation of publishers.
February 2012Naming any new venture isn’t easy. Combining everything you want to say into 1 or 2 words is a recipe for sleepless nights...
Book + Couture =Bookouture seemed a perfect fit to us – combining style and sophistication with a nod to the creativity and attention to detail that goes into our publishing.
March 2012The creation of the Bookouture logo was a labour of love, but also an exercise in priorities.
Bespoke typographyWe decided on hand-drawn typography to tie in with the very essence of Bookouture and, well, because we thought it would look kinda cool. The brief was distinctive, stylish and feminine. We hope you like the result!
August 2012We didn't think we'd be much of a digital publisher without our own website...
bookouture.comWe wanted the bookouture website to be stylish but practical - with strong social media integration to let you get involved in our journey. In August, after months of tinkering, we unveiled it to the world - we hope you like.
21 September 2012As a start-up, recognition is always especially gratifying. So we were delighted to be included in The Bookseller Rising Stars feature.
