  • "Hi Katherine,

    I'd be happy to recommend you. I just wish I had more work here to keep you busy myself!":

    It has been my privilege to have Katherine work on typesetting projects for me over the past few years. She has handled both books and Bibles with accuracy, professionalism, and accountability. She has proven herself a valuable asset to the Zondervan Bible typesetting team and is on my very short list of "go-to" freelancers. Besides that, she is a joy to work with. I would recommend Katherine to anybody looking for a skilled typesetter.

    I absolutely love working with Katherine Lloyd / The DESK on book projects because I know I’m going to get a great design, attention to detail, and full commitment to finishing the project on time and within budget. Anyone looking for a top-tier professional book designer, you will not be disappointed.

    To do what you love takes courage. Katherine does what she loves. That is why she is changing our world.

           I have repeatedly experienced with Katherine what this means to you and I. It is simply this: Katherine Lloyd will be caring, responsible, communicative, enthusiastic, and brilliant. I have faith that any project she takes on—for us or anyone else—will be completed with grace and true professionalism, as exemplified by the exceptional work she has done for us already. Thank you, Katherine.

    Katherine Lloyd has been a pleasure to work with! She is prompt, professional, and has been very accommodating to our varying production schedules. Her first project with us was our flagship book, Uncovering the Logic of English. She did an amazing job and certainly contributed to the book winning five publishing awards! Katherine went on to design and set our first curriculum set and many of the ancillary products. Essentials required a lot of creative and detailed layout solutions; the end products speak for themselves and her work .

    "Hi Katherine,

    I'd be happy to recommend you. I just wish I had more work here to keep you busy myself!":

    Katherine has been designing and typesetting interiors for Reformation Trust for more than four years. In that time, she has completed books both large and small, including some with endnotes, indexes, and even Greek text—a technical hurdle she helped us overcome. She is very knowledgeable of book design conventions, highly efficient, detail-oriented, flexible, and always willing to go the extra mile. I recommend her services without qualification.

    Reformation Trust Publishing, A Division of Ligonier Ministries)

    I have hired Katherine for book interior type-setting through Dogeared Design, (I also worked with her at Multnomah Publishers and DesignWorks from 1997 through 2002). Katherine is a dear friend who is knowledgeable and proficient at her craft. The more detail-oriented the work, the more she loves it.

    Katherine has been a great pleasure to work with over the years. She’s extremely efficient, takes art direction with grace, pays great attention to detail, and always delivers beyond your expectations. I’d recommend her in a heartbeat!

    When a reader leafs through a book they are drawn to unique, tasteful, and elegant design. Katherine Lloyd did that for my Fantasy novel Swords of the Six. She replied to my emails right away and executed design and type changes proficiently. I had launched my own publishing company to complete the project, so I had many questions for Katherine along the way—which she answered fully. I felt that she educated me about the process instead of simply doing the job. I highly recommend her as a qualified interior designer and typesetter.

    Katherine Lloyd made it possible for me to fulfill my ten-year dream of publishing my memoirs. This was a first effort for me, and having produced the text, appendices, and selected photographs, Katherine was immediate in her enthusiasm and guided me through the many details required to get this book in print. On my behalf she obtained the ISBN number, bar code, and referred me to an excellent cover designer.

         Katherine not only knows the book trade, but her patience and diligence permitted me to find and correct errors that led to splendid original and second editions. I commend Katherine and her business to authors, both neophyte and experienced, without reservation.

    The Communications Department worked with Katherine on a three-book series for Church Discipleship Ministries. She created beautiful products and was wonderful to work with. She has reasonable rates, is prompt, and proficient.

    —Becky Grosenbach, editor, Navigators

    Katherine created the interior look for several published projects. I set out to hire the best talent that fit the tenor and scope of the projects. Katherine stood out. Her work is clear. She uses subtlety to bring out the beauty or meaning on the pages she designs. I’ve hired her many times and will hire her again. One job was particularly difficult, fast-moving, and didn’t fit any previously defined molds. She hit the moving target and delivered while still smiling. I’m grateful for her talent and business sense.
