A selection of our work
Many of our projects span web, ebook and print formats of the same content. And some projects are first and foremost websites. We specialise in building fast, simple, mobile-friendly websites that carry large amounts of content.

High-end literature is the pinnacle of storytelling for storytelling’s sake. Crafting the beautiful books that carry it is our guilty pleasure, the thing we’d do all day, every day if we could. We’re privileged to work with many incredible publishing companies.
Every book cover has to tell the story of a story, without giving anything away. Here is a small selection of our book-cover work. See more
Book design is more than typesetting, and in the most beautiful books each page is treated individually, helping to craft the story with every spread. See more
Every project needs a strong identity. A brand is more than a beautiful logo. It’s a story that draws us in to form stronger memories.

Corporate communication doesn’t have to be dry. An organisation’s publications can draw the reader in like the best books in a bookstore. We’ve worked with dozens of clients to create publications we aren’t just proud of, but actually return to again and again, because reading them is just lovely.
At Fire and Lion we believe that every book has a mission: that is, every story has the power and responsibility to change the world. That mission is clearest when we work with social-impact projects and organisations, like MyConstitution, Book Dash, Worldreader, Bettercare, and the More Books Campaign.
Book Dash publishes a range of children’s books in many languages. We worked with Worldreader to turn these into reusable HTML and ebooks that could be read on any device. See more
