In My Eyes – Book Publication

Xoandre Moats is the Managing Designer at Krak’d E’rth Productions. For many years, he has written poetry, designed graphics, and attempted to get his poetry published.

With the advent of Amazon.com and their publication workspace CreateSpace.com, Xoandre found an affordable and liberating option for printing books.

We at Krak’d E’rth Productions worked with Xoandre to develop and edit his first book of poetry, Midnight Reflections. From then on, it has been a delight in publishing his other works, Murmurings of the Heart, Myths & LegendsNeurotic Delirium  and the latest book: Nightmares & Ice Cream. All books are available globally in Print, in eBook format for Kindle, and soon to be available in Audio.

Xoandre continues to work on his series, with over 400 poems in his growing collection. Currently slated are a total of 11 books of Poetry, 1 fiction novel, an autobiography, and a screenplay.

The series is printed under the Krak’d E’rth Productions banner and mark a tremendous step in bringing our brand to the world.

Let Go – Poster Design

Linda Xu is a self-published author of the book “Let Go.”

Linda is also a colleague and we offered to help her promote the first book signing event at a (Chicago West Suburbs) local book store.

Utilizing the book cover design, and recreating it when she provided us with a high-resolution photograph, we worked with Paul Garrison, Darien Store Manager to ensure proper logo design for Frugal Muse Books Music Movies, as well as Linda herself in developing and validating the proof and final design.

Pricing

Krak’d E’rth Productions prices its services based on the size and hours needed to complete each project.

Deposit:

On smaller-mid sized projects we require a 50% deposit once the concept has been approved and data files provided by the client. The balance is due prior to release of production-ready files.

On larger or long-term projects with multiple stages of deliverables, we require the same 50% deposit prior to starting work, but break up the fee schedule based on deliverables. A retainer is usually applied to the end of the project, too.

Payment:

We accept wire (bank) transfer for overseas clients, a business check or money order by mail for businesses within the United States.

We also accept Amazon Payments.

Note that any and all fees for wire transfer, Amazon Payments Deductions, or check processing will be responsibility of the client, and any outstanding balance due to said fees will be added to the final bill.

We do not accept PayPal, as that service has been frequently plagued with hackers and user account security is often compromised.

Golden Chopsticks Restaurant Proposal

We approached the owner of the Golden Chopsticks Restaurant in Bolingbrook, Illinois with this concept for their own website. The owner at the time was not interested. However, they were inspired to later use a different design firm and now operate http://goldenchopsticksonline.com - which has no affiliation with Krak'd E'rth Productions

Various complete Theme Design Concepts:

Xoandre, the President of Krak’d E’rth Productions, has worked on new visual concepts for both his and various client websites. These are proposed themes.

Control Panel

This computer interface concept is loosely based on several inspirational designs, including the original Broderbund classic Apple II game: “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego” as well as a more cubist version of the Star Trek computer interfaces. The bottom panel involves a Flash control panel and the top left panel displays all content, while sub-menu items appear in the right panel.

Denim Theme

At Krak’d E’rth, we specialize in visual design, with the understanding that function and content need not be displayed in a boring fashion. This “Denim” design incorporates color theory and use of CSS Transparency.

Eye

In an attempt to break the boundaries of hard, ninety-degree angles which dominates the web, this concept involved javascript menus and hidden content.
