AN EMPLOYEE-owned book production company responsible for the typography of best-selling books such as Sir Elton John’s autobiography, ‘Me’, Billy Connolly’s ‘Tall Tales and Wee Stories’, and Matt Haig’s ‘The Midnight Library’ has gone through its first rebrand in 27 years.

Falkirk-based Palimpsest is launching a new website as well as a “fresh and modern feel” to its logo and branding.

The firm has also contributed to the wizarding world of Harry Potter by designing and typesetting JK Rowling’s ‘Order of the Phoenix’ and has worked on a special edition of both ‘Fantastic Beasts’ screenplays for dyslexic readers.

The "modernising" rebrand has been done entirely in-house and was spurred by the firm's move to employee ownership in 2018.

Palimpsest branding coordinator Michelle Walker, said: “We have been working on a rebrand plan for some time now and we are delighted to see it has taken shape the way we planned.

“All of the work has been carried out by our dedicated team in-house, from the logo design to the website restructuring. Each member of our 21 strong team has played an integral role in the planning process."

She added: “With our improved designs it will mark a new chapter for Palimpsest as we continue to seek opportunities to expand the business into other areas in the publishing sector."
