Author Kara Gnodde needed a website to coincide with the launch of her debut novel, The Theory of (Not Quite) Everything. Kara wanted a website that promoted her book, explained a bit about her, allowed her to post updates about the book and herself, and to provide contact details of her agents and publishers.
Her fantastic book, published in the UK by Pan Macmillan, and in the USA and Canada by HarperCollins, has different cover designs for each territory, and the website needed to reflect each of those.
I designed a Squarespace site for her, which felt like the right platform from the point of view of cost and usability. I used the Mostra Nuova font from the US cover (designed by Joanne O’Neill, illustrated by Sandra Chiu) for the bulk of the site, complemented by an elegant sans serif, with the colour palette for the site taken from the US cover too.
