My main job is to create layouts for invitations and other print materials that the client will need in their event. After my stint in that company, I have decided to become a freelancer and offer my skills here in Upwork. Since I have started as a freelancer, the jobs that I worked on vary from simple business cards to complex workbooks and planners.

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ""I was beyond impressed with Eisen and cannot sing her praises enough. I contacted her for some simple design work to format a whitepaper and she blew it out of the water with just my brand guidelines, the content, and a very loose example. I gave little to no direction and she delivered a piece of collateral that was above and beyond what I could have asked for. I then asked her to turn a sales word document into a presentation and again, like magic, she delivered a beautiful and well-thought-out format that I could not have even begun to imagine. Eisen nails it every time in a beautiful, efficient and timely manner. If you need design work and need it fast, she is it."" ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Eisen is highly skilled, efficient and fast! I could not ask for a better collaborator. Her layout work is consistently excellent, she makes updates quickly, and when I needed a wholesale redesign as I did on this project, she gives me a fair price and completes the work beautifully. I am so glad that we met on Upwork; Eisen is now my first call on work like this. Highly recommended!" 👋🏻 Hi! I am one of the most sought-after Layout artist in Upwork..

    Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! A little about me... I am a full-time, professional formatter/typesetter with an eye for editorial design for both print and ebook and have years of experience in various genres and book categories. I work with independent authors and small publishing houses to help get their manuscripts across the finish line. I can create press-ready files that can be uploaded to any publishing/printing house of your choosing. I also have the capability to create custom cover templates and am familiar with the requirements for most major print-on-demand publishers such as Amazon's KDP and IngramSpark. I have a teaching license, which means I have a precise attention to detail that allows me to get my projects done quickly and, most importantly, correctly! I have the ability to copyedit and proofread documents and manuscripts in either pre or post format. For more detailed portfolio examples, check out my book craft site run by myself and my author/illustrator husband (also on Upwork)! Albatross Book Co (albatrossbookco.com). I have the ability to edit (grammar and developmental), proofread, write copy and prepare self-published authors for KDP formatting both in print and e-book. I have also worked with publishing houses on numerous books in multiple genres, including children's, YA, classics and more series over the years. A little about what you can expect from me... - Quick response times - Unparalleled attention to detail - Sensitivity to your voice as the client and/or author. - Professional, press-ready documents and manuscripts - Just a heads up, I try and take weekends off for family, and typically stick to a 9-6 business hour schedule. Let's get to work! Thank you for considering my services and don't hesitate to reach out!

    TOP RATED PLUS - Freelancer Profile 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 TOP RATED PLUS - DesignMind Agency Profile, 2021, 2022, 2023 With 13+ years of experience in this industry professionally, I co-own & run a small design agency with my husband Tim, called DesignMind. Design is everywhere if you open your eyes to it. We’re all influenced by the visuals of our world & I love adding to that dialogue with design that’s engaging and intentional - where function meets beauty. We’re a powerhouse of creativity and we love helping people present themselves & their businesses professionally with elevated design. Visuals are the outward appearance of your brand / your product / your essence, and they influence a first impression. It’s something that can make or break a new customer coming on board. From the outside, the level of attention in how your company visually presents itself can often seem as though it will mirror the level of care that you put into your product, service and customers. We love all types of design, but our favorite is layout work. Brochures, Books, Flyers, Journals, PowerPoint Decks, White Papers, Reports, Manuals, Booklets, Catalogs, Pamphlets, Posters, etc. We also enjoy creating website assets like custom icons, graphic illustrations, infographics, unique visuals, etc.

He was kind and very responsive even with all the other jobs that he's juggling - he's busy for a reason! We were aiming for a deadline and he beat it by 4 days allowing us time to fine tune and tweak little details way before the project was due.

Thank you Itamar Katz." ► "Quality guy to work with!! my marketing has greatly improved because of his work." ► "Working with Itamar is always a pleasure. He's easy to communicate with and always gets the job well-done. Itamar is my go-to layout design guy!" ► "Itamar is a top professional at designing reports. He's a great listener.

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. _________________________

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.
