Book & Cover Design Services

You need a book designer. I design books.

I provide book design, cover design, and Adobe InDesign services to authors and organizations. Whatever the size of your project, from a family memoir to a series of journals or books documenting scientific research, I am able to provide exceptional graphic design at competitive prices.

What is good book design?

A well-designed book allows the content to shine through. An author or authors spent substantial time and effort to create the words and illustrations, and now we want the reader to fluidly experience the author’s creation with as few interruptions as possible. Good design allows the reader to lose themselves in the content. Poor design causes the reader to never reach the end.

The Process: Layout + Typography

From designing a book’s cover, to laying out the interior of a book, to building an enhanced eBook, here are a few articles I have written that describe the processes:

Elements of Book Design: The Grid
The Iterative Process of Book Cover Creation

As an independent operation, I offer exceptional design quality and service at an affordable price. I understand that each creative project is unique and will have its own needs, therefore, I create an estimate for each project. Rates are typically between $65 to $85 an hour. I will let you know what the rate is after our initial project consultation. The final rate will depend on factors such as the type of work and the quantity of work. Once I quote a rate, that rate will not change for the duration of the project. To see sample budgets for past projects, view the rates page. If you are ready to talk about your project, contact me.

I strive to add value to every project I work on. Further, I treat my clients with respect and honesty.
