Graphic Design and Production
by Lisa Beller
I spent nearly 20 years working for educational publishing companies doing design, layout and production.
I have extensive experience working with books and long publications and I have also designed brochures, annual reports and covers for books and magazines.
In my spare time my passions are reading books and newspapers, attending live music and theater events, dancing, supporting social justice issues, hanging out in nature and walking my dog.
Check out some of the projects I've worked on.
A note about the name . . .
A dear friend used to call me Isabella, a play on my full name. So in memory of her enthusiasm for possibilities, I decided to drop the first and last letter of my name, and use that as the basis for the name isabelle design.
