Erica Patstone – Designer

Graphic designer with over five years of publishing experience, primarily with layout design for hardcover coffee-table books.


I'm a graphic designer and typography nerd with a passion for publishing, and I'd love the opportunity to bring your creation to life visually!

I have over five years of experience working with a small publishing company and have created book layouts for dozens of projects, primarily hardcover coffee-table books. The bulk of my work for book interiors has been imagery-focused; the layouts mostly consist of photos and text, such as photo captions and articles, but I have experience typesetting text-heavy books as well.

I believe that my years of experience, keen eye for typography, and attention to detail will make me a great candidate for your next book project. I look forward to hearing all about it!

My travel photo books are a very personal project to me, their being my legacy to my children and grandchildren. Erica has picked up the ball from a prior designer and has shown me that she understands what I want and has designed the books exactly to match my wishes.
