Looking for a book designer to help with setting up a file in InDesign CC so I can place text from Word.
I'm helping to produce a large book (700+ B5 pages) about history of Chinese medicine in 20th century. There are lots of characters used throughout (within English-language paragraphs) so it's really important that the designer has experience working with fonts for both traditional and simplified characters.
The book has been laid out in Word with style sheets to basic mockup stage and can be provided for reference so there's no design concept needed, simply getting the shell ready to place the Word files, but this would probably include things like:
Document setup, page size, margins etc
Verifying the style sheets are set up properly & add extras if needed eg optical margins etc, that aren't included in Word
Structuring files as chapters, front matter, back matter, headers & footers etc
Suggesting a layout grid based on word file
Maybe a final check of the finished file before producing the PDF
This is a self-published project for a very small market!!! So of course we're looking to economise :-) So if you're interested then please provide a quote based on your experience of what's needed to set up a project properly but not with too many bells & whistles!!
Anyone interested in the opportunity should contact Lois through the messaging system. I'm locking the thread.
