Are you a publisher who'd like to design your own books, but need help getting started?

You have a limited budget and don't mind working with InDesign, but you don't know much about typography or creating house guidelines. You'd like assistance getting started, and could maintain a style once it was established.

The House Starter Package establishes a house style guide (which you can reference in a beautiful PDF with everything included to maintain consistent styles with future publications), an InDesign book template you can uses to start your project with all of your styles pre-loaded, and one-one-one training to help you implement your new styles going forward. We'll spend time going over your press values, aesthetic, and goals so that your design style matches your brand and is in line with those goals and values. As an editor, you know good writing when you see it, and with the House Starter package, you'll be able to publish it beautifully and set it off to its best advantage.
