Johan Stiernspetz Design (former Talking Design) is a 26 year old graphic design company that specializes in developing a pleasing way to present a visual image. We have created print as well as interactive electronic media in the past. We have narrowed our expertise now, working with book and logo design, but in 2016 there will be illustration work as well.

Since 2008 the Publicera Publishing Group Ltd have used JSD as a partner in designing photographic books, and this work is continuing.

And we have a lot of fun.

The book market has changed the latest years, and the ebooks has become a large channel of distribution, but that doesn't necessary means the printed book is going to disappear. On the contrary, the sales of printed books has increased around 20% under the last five years in USA. The printed book doesn't need batteries, and it's a pleasure to hold it in your hands. So, it is looking good for fine printed photobooks and ordinary books indeed.

We welcome that, and continues our work.


October arrived with cold air up here in the north. The weather is dry and beautiful, we hope the autumn last weeks.


The work with the books we have started continues. Seaweed, furnace, light and shadows... Slow news, day to day work, nothing new.

A little slow start of the autumn this year.

At Publicera Publishing House a documentary book about the taxi business is in production. It is written from behind the wheels, and gives a fantastic view of what the job as a taxi driver is about. We got a manuscript from a person with personal experience that gives this book a real edge to the stories.

My own books »When silence is heard« and »Shadowlight« is in production and is due after the summer on Blurb.
