Grade Design Consultants has been retained to design titles and marketing material for the new publishing imprint Chrysalis Impact, which launches on 8 December. The imprint launches its first seven titles next month. The consultancy has created point-of-sale material to support the launch and is also working on the publisher’s spring titles, which will be available from March next year. Titles released next month include Naked Vinyl (cover by Christine Taylor and spread pictured), which charts four decades of nude album covers; and Comicbook Action Heroes, which details the origins and development of 500 comicbook heroes and features front cover illustration by John Watson and 130 full-colour illustrations. Both titles are available from 6 December, priced from £8.99.
