I'm a professional book designer and other printed elements as magazines, brochures, catalogs & flyers, with more than 12 years experience.

My experience in book design for print includes: university books, studies and essays, self-help books, catalogs and programs, tourism books, poetry books, school textbooks, cookbooks, novels and magazines. Normally for publishing houses, but also for self-publishing authors.

I have also high experience on ebook design: interactive PDF (great for catalogs), epub and mobi formats.

Whether you’re publishing a simple text-driven book or have many images, charts, graphs, pull quotes or sidebars to include, I'll make sure your book layout is consistent with the cover design, typographically attractive, readable and engaging.

I can offer my services in ENGLISH or SPANISH (for English, Spanish or even Catalan books)

Susana is very talented, dedicated, and creative designer with a lot of experience and - most importantly - real willingness to share her experience with her clients. She was amazing to work with - very patient in explaining things at all stages of the process and making sure everything was done perfectly! Needless to say, the book looks fantastic, and it has been a true collaboration.
