Michelle Lile – Designer

Graphic designer with 20+ years experience, loves print and typography. Excited to work with authors to create professional book designs!


I've been a graphic designer for over 20 years, working closely with clients to brainstorm and bring their publications to life. I'm all about print and typography, but I've also been getting stuck into designing for digital publications, making sure they're accessible.

I'm a bit of a stickler for detail, especially when it comes to typography, typesetting, and layout – you could say I'm a bit of a geek!

Now, I'm on the lookout for projects I can really get my teeth into. I'm keen to team up with authors to create some cracking and professional-looking books. I'm especially interested in gaining experience in different genres. Let's make something brilliant together!

Apr, 2012 — Present

Specializing in design, typesetting, and artwork, over the years I've collaborated with clients like the Edinburgh International Book Festival and Scottish Book Trust. I've crafted community project publications, book covers, and toolkits. Additionally, I've partnered with diverse clients to produce commemorative books, like the Centenary Book for the Scottish Opthalmological Society and historical projects books like the Clachtoll Broch book for AOC archaeology, alongside corporate publications and magazines. Let's bring your project to life!
