I have over 16 years of typesetting and design experience in publishing working for Walker Books Ltd, HarperCollins Children’s Books, Simon & Schuster and Bloomsbury. I specialise in children’s books but work across all age ranges from baby and pre-school to middle-grade and YA. I have also typeset adult texts for imprints of Hodder & Stoughton and Hachette and study guides for the University of London.
I provide fast turnaround from initial cast-off and type-styling, including any text emphasis, to art and illustration placement, taking in editorial corrections and design direction to produce final print ready files for press and archive. I work with raw text or pre-styled/pre-formatted assets, applying design consistently for publisher, author, character and series styles to produce covers, insides and accompanying marketing materials.
I am used to and confident in carrying multiple projects at any one time, managing my workload to fulfil scheduling demands. I work remotely but can work on site if required.
