Euan Monaghan

Euan Monaghan - Designer

Leiden, Netherlands

A freelance typesetter and book designer based between the UK and the Netherlands. I specialise in fiction, poetry and theology/religion.


My work is characterised by its focus on clarity and readability, qualities which turn on the smallest of details: from the font used for page numbers to the letter spacing of small caps.

The books I design employ InDesign styles throughout. This, together with a clear, efficient workflow, means all books designed for print can be (and often are) smoothly converted into beautiful, flexible ebooks.

To-date I have worked with various clients on a freelance basis—including, since 2011, First Story, a literacy charity serving low-income communities in the UK. This freelance work requires a great deal of flexibility and self-organisation, and tight deadlines mean my time-management skills get a regular workout.

In addition to this typesetting work, I am responsible for the design and typesetting of Structo, a biannual, Stack Award-nominated literary magazine. I also design book covers every now and again. I am a member of the Independent Publishers’ Guild via Structo Press.
