Latte Goldstein – Designer

30yrs exp. Book designer and interior design/typesetter, I work with international publishers, university presses and independent authors.

Overview


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

— Irene Au


The cover is your books’ shop window. I meld craft and technology to create cover designs that are engaging and memorable — typesetting & page layout designs that deliver an enjoyable and enhanced reading experience.


I'm a New Yorker living and working in the scenic Berwickshire Coast area of Scotland. I have 30 years professional experience designing cover artwork for publishers world-wide. I design interiors for both fiction and non-fiction books and have also worked on several dual-language publications.


Recent award winning publications:

Old Ireland in Colour — Winner of the Best Irish Published Book Award 2020.

The Presidents' Letters — Shortlisted for the Best Irish Published Book Award 2021.

For both of these titles I designed the covers as well as the interior pages (see examples below)


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 POD requirements

• Friendly, responsive and creative service throughout the entire process

• Help and guidance for all your self publishing questions

Latte took my ideas and made the most beautiful cover i could imagine. They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but I wouldn’t mind if they judged mine by his cover.

Latte is a first rate, kind, competent professional. He hung in there with me when there were challenges, and provided what I wanted even after I had given up (and told him so) on a bookmark and hyperlink challenge - but he kept trying anyway and found a solution to that challenge which I thought was hopeless. He was also willing to make many adjustments that I requested, repeatedly. One of the...
