Overview

I'm a freelance book designer and art director who's been working in publishing for over 20 years. Clients include HarperCollins, Hachette, Macmillan, Penguin Random House, and Simon & Schuster among others. Through Reedsy, I'm offering a select book interior design service for budget-conscious self-publishers. I’m pleased to offer my design services through the templates in my Reedsy portfolio that I can apply to your projects. Made using industry best standards and practices and built on top of a modified golden ratio, these hand-crafted templates are perfect for any project. Each one is meticulously constructed and uses free fonts so you won’t have to worry about additional font license expenses. All template design packages come with the following pages:
