I am very flexible, always willing to keep within a budget, Working mainly in InDesign, QuarkXpress and Photoshop (Mac), I have completed over 1,000 book projects. I have all the major programs and complete collections of most font libraries, many in Opentype. Usually, after proofing, I am asked to upload completed projects, having taken them to pdf and pre-flighted, to printers\' ftp sites.
Area Covered: UK/worldwide (english language)
