There is something incredibly satisfying about creating a beautiful publication. I started my publishing career in book design and layout and I’ve loved it ever since. I’ve designed travel guides, sports books, computer workbooks, newsletters, advertising leaflets, history exhibitions and more. Gone are the days of crop guides and slides though, now I use Adobe InDesign.

I worked closely with Claire over a ten-month period on a history exhibition. I enjoyed working with Claire, who designed and edited the exhibition, and found her to be thoroughly professional. She was a very precise editor and provided terrific creative design ideas for the project. I hope to be working with Claire again in the future and can confidently recommend her to others in need of design and editing services.

I had the pleasure of working with Claire online over a 6 month period for my first book. When you are working on your first book and have invested a tremendous amount of effort and IP into it, there are no doubt trust issues when sharing it with strangers. Claire straight away struck me as a credible and trustworthy person which to me was the first criteria. Secondly, I was amazed by the quality of her work, the fact she went above and beyond, and her expert insights into the whole publishing process. A one stop shop powerhouse for sure. I would recommend anyone that wants to take their book from a 7/10 to a 10/10, to engage Claire for all of your needs! I sure will be back next time.

Claire’s experience and skills as both an editor and designer made the experience of bringing a draft manuscript to publication remarkably and unexpectedly enjoyable. What could have been a challenging process was made smooth and straightforward by Claire’s deep knowledge and thorough, patient and professional approach. Claire read and considered every word of my book, made sensible suggestions for improvement and enhanced the flow of my writing. In terms of design, her layout was beautiful. She created quirky and memorable ideas for the cover and guided me through the myriad of choices in style, colour, theme and all manner of other aspects of design. Working with Claire was a joy and I would highly recommend engaging with her for editing, proofreading, layout and design work.
