Northern Eye Books

Northern Eye Books are publishers of award-winning walking books covering National Parks, long-distance walks and scenic areas of England, Wales and Scotland. Tony and Carl have approached me to work with them on a range of regular projects since 2017, starting with guidebook design and social media content and, in 2019-2020, an entire re-brand. Their ethos to explore and cherish the most beautiful parts of the UK resonate with mine, and so every project with Northern Eye runs seamlessly from start to finish!

“Laura is bright, friendly and very capable. Highly recommended.”

Tony Bowerman, Director at Northern Eye Books.

Above: I worked with Tony and Carl on their award-winning ‘Top 10 Walks’ guidebook layout. The final designs are easy to follow, informative and clear, with accurate Ordnance Survey mapping and inspiring imagery from professional photographers.

Above: The redesigned Northern Eye logo represents the British landscape; mountains, countryside and the coast, through a sleek icon. Two versions were needed – one standard logo for general use (top), plus a landscape version (bottom) suitable for use on the spine of guidebooks. A dark letterbox red was chosen as the brand colour due to it’s high-contrast against the greens, browns and blues that are featured so prevalently throughout their walking books.
