Whether you have a thesis, a novel, a non-fiction manuscript, a report, a brochure or a web page – if it has text in it, I can edit it.
I can transform your vision of a perfect cover into a design you can be proud of. I can even assist in creating a layout for the text itself.
I can convert your text into an ebook and help upload it on popular online bookstores like Amazon, Kobo and Smashwords.
I can design logos, posters, brochures, reports, websites, invites and more. Scroll down to see some samples of my work.
I have been working in the field of publishing as an editor for the past two decades, and as a book designer and ebooks consultant for almost eight years.
As an editor, I have worked in publishing houses like Sage (academic books), Zubaan (trade and academic) and Vikas (educational). I have also freelanced for a variety of publishing houses, research organizations, educational institutes, individual authors and others.
At some point in my career, I started getting more interested in digital publishing. I set up Zubaan's digital department, where I initiated and implemented the company’s ebooks programme. I also headed Zubaan’s Poster Women Project, a unique undertaking to create a digital archive of the posters of the Indian women’s movement, as well as chronicling the experiences of many old and new feminist activists.
At Zubaan, I also had the opportunity to work on my design skills. I created several book covers, brochures, book launch invites, posters, bookmarks and even a website for the organization. Soon, I took on freelance design assignments as well. This was a remarkable time for me, allowing me to learn more about design, and to experiment and hone my skills.
My growing interest and experience in technology and design has nudged me to offer my services to a wider variety of clients. My goal remains that of a facilitator who assists authors and publishers to better communicate with their readers.
