Overview


“Good design is like a refrigerator—when it works, no one notices, but when it doesn’t, it sure stinks.”

— Irene Au


I'm a New Yorker living and working in the scenic Berwickshire Coast area of Scotland. I have 25 years professional experience designing cover artwork for publishers world-wide. I design interiors for both fiction and non-fiction books and have also produced dual-language publications.

A client shortlist includes: Irish Academic Press, Manchester University Press, Bloomsbury, I B Tauris, Boydell & Brewer, Reaktion Books, Quartet Books, Multi-Lingual Matters, Policy Press, Fordham University Press, Penn State University Press and Edinburgh University Press.

As a professional book designer I will bring:
• Skilfulness to unravel a brief to find key creative concepts
• Impactful and dynamic design solutions
• Swift response to amendments and alterations
• Expert technical knowledge of printing guidelines and KDP requirements
• Friendly, responsive and creative service throughout the entire process
• Help and guidance for all your self publishing questions

Latte's background in nonfiction from history to humanities eminently qualifies him to comprehend projects in these more complex subjects. He is thorough, professional, precise, and creative (especially with design and edits). He is affable, always open to the author's goals — and very patient. Highly recommended!

Stephen Newman
I picked Latte because his profile came across as professional and kind. In reality, working with him was even better than I thought. Latte came up with some stunning cover designs and didn't mind the endless need for grammar checks and slight rewrites even if that wasn't part of his job. If you want a professional, with excellent skill and who will go the extra mile for you then Latte is the ...
