Book design & editing – BPD

Non-profit organisation BPD approached us to take care of the full service for this book from design, to translation, to editing and print management. As a bilingual agency (English/Spanish), we love the chance to get our teeth into a project where we can use our language skills.

The Silent Partner was published in English and Spanish and included findings from reports carried out in South America. The design was inspired by the Aztec culture and included lots of charts and infographics throughout. 

Finding the right printing partner was a challenge as the charity needed to fulfill environmental requirements for paper and ink. We partnered with one of the few fully sustainable printing companies in the UK to make sure that the finished product looked amazing while having as little impact on the environment as possible. 

The Silent Partner was the beginning of a long-standing collaboration with BPD and partners, providing branding solutions, reports and other printed and digital materials.

What We Did

Art direction, text translation, editing and proofreading, print management

AK creative managed a difficult bilingual publication process for us – from the design phase, to translating, to editing, to bilingual proof-reading/editing and print management.

It was a pleasure to work with them. Their professionalism (and great sense of humour!) was often required to deal with the odd working hours and requests we sent their way – including a Skype review meeting on a Sunday morning from West Africa! I would not hesitate to use AK creative again and have recommended them to others too.
