Sometimes graphic designers contact us and say "Hey, what's the deal? Why should I send my designs to you? Who are you people and what are you going to do with my images?"|
Here's the short answer:
Submitting to our books is always free and the exposure is always huge.
Here's the longer answer:
Crescent Hill Books specializes in producing books for a very specific genre: Design.
We partner with the best publishers in the world to showcase fresh, fabulous work from the advertising and design-related fields.
Our publishing partners have very long distribution arms, which means each book is sold all over the world, including Thailand, Australia, China, Indonesia, Europe as well as North and South America. This translates into amazing exposure for all the design firms that are featured in our books.
To select which images appear in each book, we partner with industry leaders to serve as judges. These are some of the top designers and creative directors around, folks who have the expertise and experience to select truly excellent design for each publication.
Bottom line: Each book is like a mini-design competition, except without the entry fees. All 'winners' have their work shown all around the world in a hardcover book.
Smart Little Tip: Many design firms who are featured in our books make copies or 'tear sheets' of their pages, and use them as promotional pieces within their portfolios.
