Heather McIntyre - Designer

London, United Kingdom

A freelance cover and interior layout designer for books.

Overview

After 8 years freelancing in the UK publishing industry, working on magazine layout with Bookbrunch and Publishers Weekly for their Book Fair Show Dailies, and the Bookseller Association's Christmas Books catalogues, I have ventured into the world of self-publishing.

With the skills learned freelancing and lots of playing with Photoshop over the last 10 years, I design beautiful covers for indie authors for their ebooks and print books as well as the interior layout for their print books.
