Sabrina Milazzo – Designer

Professional book formatter/interior designer for print and ebooks & award winning fantasy author who loves working in all genres.

Overview

Hi, my name is Sabrina.

I'm a professional book interior designer and award winning fantasy author from Germany.


I have been working as a designer for more than 20 years. Since 2019 I have been combining my passion for design with my second passion - reading and writing - by creating the interior of print books and formatting ebooks for countless publishers, selfpublishers and hybrid authors.


For me, readability has top priority. That's why I'm paying extra attention to purposeful typography, the use of clean fonts and harmonious spacing. However, I also like to give something unique to each novel by designing appealing chapter beginnings and title pages that fit the story, are free of clutter and that integrate harmoniously into the overall picture.


In short, by working with me you'll get a beautiful layout design with clean fonts that fit your genre, well-structured chapter headings, purposeful typography, harmonious spacing and page numbering, illustrated chapter beginnings and title pages, images & bleed images and of course a clickable table of contents in your ebook. All according to the latest standards of professionally edited books.


If you have any questions, feel free to contact me in English or German. :)

⚠️ I am usually fully booked 4-6 months in advance. Plan at least 4 weeks for full layouts (depends on complexity).

GERMAN:

Privat arbeite ich im Designbereich bereits seit mehr als 20 Jahren. Seit 2019 verbinde ich meine Designleidenschaft mit meiner zweiten Vorliebe, dem Lesen und Schreiben, und gestalte den Buchsatz für Selfpublisher, Hybrid-Autoren und Verlage. Die Lesbarkeit hat dabei oberste Priorität. Doch auch eine ansprechende und zur Geschichte passende Kapitelgestaltung, die nicht überladen wirkt und sich harmonisch ins Gesamtbild integriert, ist wichtig, damit jede Geschichte ihre einzigartige Form und ein professionelles Äußeres erhält.


Das heißt: Wenn du mit mir zusammenarbeitest erhältst du ein professionelles, ansprechendes Layout mit Schriftarten, die angenehm fürs Auge sind und zum Genre passen, klar strukturierte Kapiteltitel, harmonische Abstände und Seitenzahlen. Auf Wunsch: Illustrierte Kapitelanfänge und/oder Titelseiten, Einbindung von Grafiken, Inhaltsverzeichnissen, Fußnoten, einem Index und natürlich ein klickbares Inhaltsverzeichnis im E-Book.


Bei Fragen kannst du mich jederzeit auf Englisch oder Deutsch kontaktieren. :)

⚠️ Ich bin normalerweise 4 - 6 Monate im Voraus ausgebucht. Für das Projekt müssen mindestens 4 Wochen eingeplant werden (abhängig von der Komplexität des Designs).
