Stewart Williams

Stewart Williams – Designer

Over 30 years in publishing. Art Direction, Graphic Design, Typography, Illustration, Project Management. Two cats are also here to help.

Overview


Hello,

My name is Stewart Williams. I live in Morgantown, WV. I graduated in 1990 from CSU Chico with a B.A. in Communications with an emphasis in Graphic Design.

My publishing career has spanned over 30 years: from long-forgotten magazines to Art Directing The Rocket, Seattle’s premier music magazine at the epicenter of the 90s Grunge explosion.

I carved a path through the freelance book-designer jungle to an art director position at Sasquatch Books, then left the West Coast for the East.

I contracted independently in NYC for clients and publishers all over. I worked part-time for the New York Times Magazine then I moved to Pittsburgh to continue my work in publishing including redesigning Pittsburgh Magazine.

An avid reader, I’m just as interested in what’s on the cover of a book as much as what’s inside. Stories make a book memorable, but books are truly judged by their covers and first impressions.

MY SERVICES

What I do/don't do:

I design covers, interior layout and typesetting, create EPUBs, project management, advertising, poster design and consulting at an hourly rate. I also do illustration in very specific styles.

My portfolio is really the best indicator of my work, but I'm always up for new challenges. Samples of books you admire help me know the direction you're interested and allows me to see If I'm the right designer for you.

I provide typesetting services and create clean, beautiful interiors for simple-text books like novels and more complex versions seen in gardening books and cookbooks. I will need to know everything you know about your text to make an accurate offer: if your book is text-only or has any specific formatting requirements such as charts, illustrations or photos, footnotes, endnotes, indexes or things of that nature.

I am a strong advocate that EPUBs be as simple and adjustable as possible to fully utilize the font choice and font size options on the device they’re read on. Nothing complicated. Let the device do the work.

Project management on my end means I manage the raw book materials from design to press-ready. I deliver the finished book files used to print.

For social media advertisements, you will need to know the size and quantity of each one for each platform. All are different and some take more time to create.

If you request Other Advertising Materials you will need to specify what those are in order to get an accurate quote.

My illustration style is seen on books like Lot Boy and My Virtuous Sister, and Shooting Lessons and Repairable Men.

I don’t edit or proofread books. I don’t make trailers or websites. I am not a marketing or PR specialist nor offer legal advice.

I have worked with 100s of authors, When it comes to designing and producing your physical book I can ease your fears and help guide you through the process. You and your book deserve it. People are waiting to read it.

I look forward to hearing from, and more important—working with you!

—Stewart
