When you hire me you get the creativity of two designers for your project. Lee and I have been designing book covers, jackets and interior designs for over 25 years and have produced hundreds of books on a variety of subjects. We work with large and small publishing houses, as well as small independents and self-publishers.
When working with self-publishers we require that the manuscript be edited and copyedited before being submitted to us for design and typesetting. We also highly recommend that the self-publisher have the first round of typeset pages be reviewed by a proofreader.
Our goal is to provide beautifully designed printer ready files for a final book that the author can be proud of.
Lee Fukui and I have created hundreds of book covers and book interiors for various imprints over the years. We do the design, composition (typesetting), and manage the production by coordinating with publisher, author, copy-editor, proofreader, and indexer. We are proficient in InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, QuarkXpress, and Word. Some of the publisher's we've worked with:
McGraw Hill Education; Jeremy P. Tarcher/ Penguin—G.P. Putnam's Sons, Avery Books, Riverhead; John Wiley and Sons; The Flower Tree Press; Random House—Ballantine Books, Broadway Books, Crown, Doubleday, Spiegel and Grau, Shaye Areheart, Three Rivers Press . . .
