Giramondo Publishing website

The Giramondo Publishing Company is an independent, Australian, university-based literary publisher of award-winning poetry, fiction and non-fiction, renowned for the quality of its writing, editing and book design. F+N were asked to design and develop a new website that would present the publishers archival content dating back to 1995 along with all current publications including the re-launch of the literary journal HEAT magazine. Giramondo established a strong reputation for design having worked with the highly respected designer Harry Williamson for many years and currently with award winning designer Jenny Grigg. We worked in close collaboration with Giramondo to ensure the design of the new website matched the level of quality and attention to detail that their publications achieved. The site contains an elegant and easy to navigate shop that has helped the publisher increase book sales.
