My name is Euan Monaghan. I’m a freelance typesetter and book designer based between the UK and the Netherlands. My work is characterised by its focus on clarity and readability, qualities which turn on the smallest of details: from the font used for page numbers to the letter spacing of small caps.

The books I design employ InDesign styles throughout. This, together with a clear, efficient workflow, means all books designed for print can be (and often are) smoothly converted into beautiful, flexible ebooks.

Since 2011 I have worked with a diverse group of clients, including Melville HouseZuleika, Standout Books and First Story. This freelance work requires a great deal of flexibility and self-organisation, and tight deadlines mean my time-management skills get a regular workout.

In addition to this typesetting work, I am responsible for the design and typesetting of Structo, a biannual, Stack Award-nominated literary magazine. I also design book covers every now and again. I am a member of both AIGA, the professional association for design, and the Independent Publishers’ Guild.
