Lori Colbeck - Designer

South Dakota, United States

I use advanced academic theory of publishing (typography and interior book design) and apply it to your independent publishing project(s).

Overview

I am a freelance creative professional living in South Dakota. I have a reverence for those who are brave enough to share what they've written with the world, and I am meticulous in presenting those words in a way that enhances, never distracts.

I have several skills utilized by the publishing industry; let me put them to use for you. I specialize in print layout, ebook file conversion (both epub and mobi), and full and/or ebook cover design.

As a reader, I admire anyone who can create a world and write about it. As a designer, I can create a beautiful cover and a typographical design that touts professionalism. As a collaborator, I will be as sensitive to the author’s voice as I would be their deadline. Communication is essential, and our relationship will not be lacking.
