I'm Diogo Leite, a passionate Portuguese designer and art director. My journey in the world of design and communication began when I graduated from ESAP (Escola Superior de Artes do Porto) in 2009. Over the past 12 years, I've immersed myself in the captivating realm of publishing, honing my skills as both a designer and an art director.

My career has been a dynamic and diverse one, allowing me to work with a variety of clients and publishers, including Leya, Penguin Books, Inkitt, and Hot Ghost Writer. As a freelancer and in-house professional, I've had the privilege of collaborating with authors across different genres, each with their unique vision and storytelling style.

However, like many, the challenges brought by the Covid-19 pandemic prompted a period of reflection in my life. I used this time to recharge my creative energies, rediscover my passion, and emerge stronger and more inspired than ever.


Now, I'm back, rejuvenated, and excited to introduce my personal project to you.



My mission is simple yet profound: to help authors and publishers bring their literary creations to life by providing top-tier design and art direction services.

With my extensive experience, I offer:

  • Cover Design: A captivating book cover is your work's first impression. I'm dedicated to crafting covers that resonate with your story and connect with your audience.

  • Interior Formatting: A well-designed interior layout is essential for a seamless reading experience. I guarantee polished, reader-friendly formats that elevate your content.

  • Promotional Materials: Successful book marketing starts with compelling visuals. I create promotional images and materials that help you promote your work effectively.


I understand that your book is a labor of love, and I'm committed to ensuring it receives the attention and design expertise it deserves.
