Coordinated Design and Consistent Quality

Page design matters! I can make sure your book cover and interior pages are design coordinated and consistent. This includes styling and tablets, diagrams, and graphics that you require. I can also help you re-purpose those tables and graphics for other uses, such as PowerPoint presentations. I have created designs for all types of books. Most importantly, I provide typography and layout that meets and often exceeds the standards upheld by the best publishers and university presses. This means you are not getting “self-published” standards that are so recognizable and rejected by book industry professionals.

Everyone who has seen it is blown away by how professional it looks. They rave over the outside and when they open it, they can’t believe how pretty and engaging it looks.… Thank you for doing such a GREAT job!
