    Hello! I’m Jess, an artist & designer based in NE Ohio who has been working in publishing for over 5 years. With a keen eye for detail, I collaborate closely with authors and publishers to create unique designs that benefit their target audience and accurately represent the author’s work. Whether you’re an established author seeking new solutions for your next book, or a brand new writer looking for a partner in designing and publishing your debut novel, I’m here to help bring your work to life - and to get it on as many shelves as possible. A little about my work process and what to expect - I do not use templates for my book design work, so each book that I work on has unique formatting. However, this does require more time and communication between myself and the client. My work does best when the client is involved in the process - discussing fonts, helping look for inspiration photos to convey their ideas, and experimenting with different solutions. It is a process. There is not instant turn-around time, as I do not use templates nor generators. If you need print-ready files this week with no collaboration, then I am not the designer for you. But if you are looking for a partner in the creative process who is committed to your book and fulfilling your dream to make your book unique amongst it's competition and includes a lot of personalization, then we will work well together! --Areas of Expertise-- -Book cover design -Book Formatting and Typesetting -Preparation for publishing platforms (Amazon KDP, IngramSpark, Blurb, etc) -Ebook cover design -Ebook interior formatting (EPUB and MOBI) -Market Research

    I have been working freelance for over 10 years now and always, ALWAYS, my work takes me back to books in some form or another. I have experience in Brand Creation, Project Management, Graphic Design, and Content Design, and all of that helps me turn authors' works into beautiful pieces that attract their readers. As a book enthusiast, I do cover designs, typesetting, custom layouts/formatting, proofreading, developmental edits, and critiques. I use Adobe programs and follow industry and publisher standards to create high-quality books in both print and digital formats, with a specific focus on layout and typography design. My job here is to get you a final product that you love and that your readers will enjoy! I have done multiple book projects including fiction, non-fiction, research reports, poetry, plays, and school books. Along with those, I have done multiple different styles of formatting and design for software and hardware manuals, internal training, and company white papers. With a varied background including graphic and content design, publishing, dancing, editing (and a love of commas), I am able to combine the intricacies of the written word with the simplicity of beautiful graphics into something unique. This is how you get your book seen and loved by your audience! Ready to work together? Let's talk :)

    Book design is my passion! I've been a student of typography and have had a love of books since I began reading at the age of four. • Highly experienced professional book designer and book typesetter, awarded Upwork Top-Rated and Pro Designer Status, Private Talent Cloud status, and Certifed Editorial Design. • Specializing in custom interior book design and typesetting for authors and publishers across the globe. • Work with a commitment to excellence. • I work with you and your printer to help ensure that your files are trouble-free when it comes time to print. • I am well-versed in KDP print on demand, IngramSpark, and LightningSource book setup specs. I'll gladly work with your printer as needed. • I also offer ebook conversion for epub and mobi and other digital platforms. What clients say: ________________________ “Sue of JustYourType knows book design and typesetting like Michael Jordan knows basketball." -Mark Kuta, author, "Think Like a Ceo" Gold Medal Book Award _________________________ Sue’s attention to detail and ability to see a project through from start to finish amidst extenuating and stressful circumstances is unparalleled. We hired her for an extremely intense InDesign project that resulted in 2200 total pages across five separate fully-styled books. The books were for an international project with an 8 hour time difference and a language barrier. We originally intended for her to be our only designer, but quickly learned that we’d need more personnel to stay on deadline, so we hired two more designers and Sue ran the entire team. She had a very clear and logical system, and oversaw the work of the entire design team, as well as doing much of the work. Despite the multitudes of challenges and obstacles thrown at Sue and our team as we worked on these books, she completed the project with pinpoint accuracy, an incredible eye for detail, and a willingness to go above and beyond our expectations in both speed of work and availability. She was also a quick and efficient communicator with a solid work ethic and a persevering attitude. Anyone who hires her should consider themselves extremely lucky! Marie Casias Manager, Marketing & Administration TIG _________________________ "I never even THINK about hiring anyone else as a book designer for my books. Sue is just that good." -joneborne _________________________ “Sue’s creative and artistic book design captured the mythic flavor of "The Stillness of Love and Exile.” The exquisite layout was a major reason the judges at the Independent Book Award selected my book as a Silver Medalist for Best Fiction. Great book designer!” -Rosa Martha Villarreal, The Stillness of Love and Exile Award-winning Book Designer: 2008 - 2014 PubWest, IPPY, and Axiom Business Books Awards. _________________________

    Hello! My name is Amber Icenhour Calderon. I have been an illustrator and designer for 5 years. My strengths lie in children's book illustration, logo design, book layout, and cartooning. In my senior year of high school, I won 2nd place in the Art Institutes National Poster contest, where I won a $2.000 scholarship. Prior to beginning my career as a freelancer, I earned my bachelors degree from the Art Institute of Atlanta. My time learning at the Art Institutes jump started my passion and drive to start my own business and identity as Insane Angel Art. Currently as a children's book illustrator, I have illustrated six currently-published books including Joey's BIG Imagination, The Adventures of Jam and Jelly, Scarecrows on Main, and many more. Since then, I've built up my business and personal art style to bring my own creations to more people. As a freelancer, I love meeting new people and seeing their visions come to life through my art! Working with so many different clients and watch my art positively influence others.

    I am an English/Spanish/English translator with more than 30 years of experience. It started as a side business, but since I joined Upwork in 2017, it has been my main activity. I specialize in translating books and ensure that translations are accurate and that the author's tone or intent is not lost. When translating, I spend a lot of time researching unfamiliar terms and words to make the final document as accurate as possible. Editing or proofreading a book is also related, and I have a sharp eye for finding mistakes or a better word in certain places to deliver high-quality content. Reading is one of my main passions, so translating books is more of a pleasure than an obligation and I enjoy doing it, no matter the subject. I describe myself as: • Professional • Responsible • Experienced • Punctual and • A person who can go the extra mile to meet the standards required by the client. I studied Computer Science at a local University and worked in this area most of my professional life. My translations are into Neutral Latin American Spanish. I would be more than happy to provide any information or orientation you may need to complete your task. “A translator is a reader, an interpreter, and a creator all in one.” Bijay Kumar Das

How much does it cost to hire a book designer?

Book design goes beyond having an aesthetically pleasing cover: The inside layout should also be pleasant to look at and easy to read. Book designers understand how to format text and pictures to give readers the best possible experience. Professional book design can help your cover pop in the bookstore and get it into readers’ hands. 

Book designer costs vary depending on your individual needs, but you can expect an hourly rate between $25 and $100. The number of years of experience a designer has, your desired book format, and the number of revisions you require will all play a role in cost. 

Experience and expertise 

Book designers need graphic design skills and expertise in InDesign and Photoshop. An entry-level book designer might be a good fit if you’re looking for an ebook cover, basic text with headings, or someone who can format using templates. 

Intermediate book designers might be better suited to format text and pictures or graphics and print cover design. Expert designers can format longer, more complex manuscripts and are more likely to know how to optimize your cover for the marketplace. 

Format

Format plays a significant role in design costs and is incredibly important, especially if you’re self-publishing. Professional design services for an ebook will be less costly than an entire book layout for print. The design process for an ebook is less time-consuming than a print book because print books require front and back covers as well as the design of the spine. 

Scope of project 

The time a designer spends on your book depends on how many adjustments you need. Book design services typically include revisions, so if you know what you want, the included revisions might be enough. If you’re less confident, you might want to see a couple of cover mockups or tweak the interior book design. Additional mockups and revisions can bring additional charges.

Geographic location

Book designers can work from anywhere in the world, so it’s possible to outsource your design needs to any location. Designers in cities with a high cost of living will likely charge higher rates than those living in more affordable locations. Consider where your designer lives when choosing the right fit for your book. 

Popular book designer projects 

Some designers specialize in a cover design or a specific type of book design. Book designers might charge an hourly rate of $25 to $100, or they might charge per page or offer a flat rate for just a cover. Ebook cover design is going to cost less than softcover or hardcover book design because physical books require front and back covers as well as spine design. 

Book cover design is a valuable niche because a cover optimized for your target audience will help readers see your book on the shelf and pick it up. Book cover design costs vary depending on if you need a front and back cover and if the book is soft or hardcover. Flat rates typically range anywhere from $30 to $100, with larger agencies and designers charging significantly more. Sometimes they offer add-ons like an ebook cover for an additional flat rate. 

Children’s book design is key in capturing young readers’ interest. Keeping kids’ attention requires illustrations, colors, and fonts to be vibrant, eye-catching, and easy to read. Children’s book designers typically charge a rate per internal page, maybe around $18 per page. Additional flat rates might be added on for elements like front and back cover, hardcover, dust jacket, and more. 

Basic novel design requires designing the front and back cover, spine, and internal text formatting. A basic novel designer will likely charge a flat rate per page, maybe $10, and charge more or less depending on your specific cover design needs.
