Los Angeles in Vivid Colors

Los Angeles in Vivid Colors

Los Angeles is a wonderful city to live in as a photographer.
I was determined to get to know my adopted city a lot better, so I took some time off from my freelance work as a book designer and typesetter, and set out every morning to a different part of the city, camera in hand.
I began to experiment with altering and enhancing the colors in my photographs. The result is this series of color enhanced photographs of landmark buildings and sites in Los Angeles.
These are some of my favorite photographs, and hope that you enjoy looking at photographs nearly as much as I did working on them.

New Book Designs Available for Typesetting/Layout

New Book Designs Available for Typesetting/Layout

Some new chapter opener designs now available as the starting point for custom book projects. I usually start my book designs at the chapter opener page and then coordinate the design with the other page elements, including Frontmatter pages (Title, Dedication, Copyright, Contents), and Backmatter pages (Notes, Bibliography, Index).

Ideally, the interior design can be related or somehow tied in to the cover design. But this is not always possible, as the interior design and typesetting often begin before the book covers are ready. Sometimes elements from the interior design can show up on the front cover.

New Book Design, Full Color & Grayscale

This chapter opener design is the latest entry in my library of book designs available at no charge for books that I typeset.

I think of these templates as off-the-shelf designs that I customize to meet the specific needs of authors and individual books.

Hope you like it, and please feel free to contact me with your book production questions any time!

TO SUCCEED in business today, companies must perform much of the work of a traditional publisher.

Writing, editing, designing, and producing great content for print and websites can take up a lot of valuable time. You can either do the work yourself and live with the less than optimal results, or you can go to one of the high priced firms that often delegate work to their junior staff.

The goal of Andrea Reider Design is to bring the highest level of professionalism to your business communications, advertisements, and publications for a low fee that will pay for itself in increased sales and productivity.

I’ve been working in publishing for over 20 years (John Wiley & Sons, Addison-Wesley, National Academies Press), and can honestly say that I still love what I do. You can see many samples of my work at www.andreareider.com.

Please consider Andrea Reider Design as a resource for your publishing needs. Feel free to contact me any time—I look forward to hearing from you!

Warmest regards,

New Book Designs: Chapter Openers

New Book Designs: Chapter Openers

I hope you enjoy my new collection of book designs! I began with a single layout and developed variations on the theme.

My plan is to work on and post a number of Chapter Opener designs that can be customized for specific book projects. I’ll be posting some interior pages soon, with different levels of heads, lists, text boxes, and sidebars, etc.

Please feel free to contact me with questions about your book publishing projects. I work regularly with traditional book printers as well as Amazon’s CreateSpace, print on demand service.

I spent some time photographing downtown Los Angeles last weekend, concentrating on the old Financial District and the adjoining Broadway Theatre District.

All of these images are color enhanced and altered.
