Graphic Design

When author Joshua Long approached Graticle Design with the challenge of designing the jacket for his new book, “Bottleneck Breakthrough,” we were excited to dive into a project that melded creativity with intellect. The task at hand was to create a design that not only encapsulated the book’s essence but also resonated with its target audience.

Understanding the Book:

“Bottleneck Breakthrough” is a guide aimed at helping businesses identify and overcome their biggest constraints. Understanding the subject matter was vital in developing a design that mirrored the book’s core themes.

Design Process:

  1. Initial Consultation: We began by discussing the book’s content, target audience, and Long’s vision for the jacket.
  2. Conceptualization: With a clear understanding, we started crafting concepts that visually represented the book’s focus on problem-solving and growth.
  3. Collaboration with the Author: Joshua Long’s insights and feedback were vital in fine-tuning the design. His involvement ensured the jacket resonated with his writing and message.
  4. Final Design: The finished jacket design was a balanced blend of aesthetics and functionality, embodying the book’s vision and appealing to readers.

Features of the Jacket:

  • Visual Appeal: We used colors and imagery that were striking yet aligned with the book’s professional tone.
  • Typography: The choice of fonts was essential in portraying the book’s authoritative yet accessible approach.
  • User-Friendly Layout: Careful attention was paid to the layout, making sure that the jacket was not only visually engaging but also informative.


Designing the jacket for “Bottleneck Breakthrough” was more than just an artistic endeavor; it was about understanding the author’s vision and translating it into a visual medium. We at Graticle Design are proud to have contributed to Joshua Long’s work, crafting a jacket that stands as a reflection of the valuable insights contained within the pages of his book.

The collaboration with Joshua Long, as with all our clients, was a rewarding experience, and we look forward to future opportunities to bring more authors’ visions to life.
