Colleen Sheehan - Designer

Middle West of the United States

I'm Colleen and I do only one thing: print design, typesetting, & ebook formatting. Why? I have an indisputable love affair…with type.


Hi! My name is Colleen and I'm a book interior designer and typesetter!

And that's it. Because that's my specialty. Some have called me a wizard. A legend. A weirdo. But I'm here to say, I am none of those things. I'm simply a professional who has dedicated her entire work life to one thing: the pursuit of the perfectly typeset page.

What does this mean for you? It means I'm passionate about crafting creative, well-balanced pages with an eye for the traditionally typeset ideals established by hundreds of years of typesetting. I'm efficient. I'm thorough. I'm affordable and I'm fast. My regular turnaround time is 3-5 days for a full custom fiction interior with line-by-line typesetting.

I'm familiar with fonts and their history. I'm sensitive to the interior branding of a book with its cover and within a series, because I believe book covers may be the door to a great story, but the interior is coming home. The memory of past books come to life as they touch the page with a design that matches so comfortably with the books before it.

Let me design your book's home interior to give your readers the most comfortable and attractive reading experience possible. This is ampersand book interiors because you and your reader's experience should be an 'and,' not an 'or'.
