Bosi Paolo Making your books look awesome Graphic Design

About

I work to make your book look as awesome as you dreamed

Who am I?

Design, book layout and typesetting are my passions. I love to take a work and make it as readable and appealing as possible. Right now I’m working on several projects as a freelance graphic designer and book layout artist.

My primary hobby is gaming: I love tabletop RPGs, boardgames and videogames. I make video commentary about videogames and design some games of my own. I’m also preparing to publish my first RPGs for which I plan on using a crowdfunding site like IndieGoGo.

Why Choose Me?

Before my current job, I worked as accountant for over 10 years. I’ve learned to be precise, organized and to carefully count my time. This helps me a lot in my current job, as I’ve been able to manage both big projects and small ones.

Check the work I did for the Italian edition of Dungeon World (project management, book layout for 256 pages A4 format, over 80 illustrations) and Shahida (300 pages, A5 format, I’ve both managed the project, translated it and did the layout).

What Else?

Currently my major side-project is a Patreon page where I post my stories. I’m currently working on my first full-fledged novel (a YA story) while also working at many short stories all set in a fantasy world I created.

I love to play with tropes and explore and reverse them.

Varied expertises at your service

Adobe InDesign

I have great knowledge of Adobe InDesign (Creative Suite 6 and Creative Cloud). I’ve worked with it on all my projects, making layouts, typesetting books and also working with graphic vector elements. I’ve done a workshop on Digital Publishing and I’m working on the DPS version of my portfolio.

Typographic design

My first specialization is typographic design. I love the task of making a text as evocative and readable as possible. I’ve worked both with long text pages and text plus images pages. I’ve already worked with Google Fonts and I think it is really important to have a free and accessible font set for your project.

Gaming expertise

Gaming being my first hobby, I can offer you specialized expertise for laying out your gaming manual. Knowing how to place illustrations and tables into the text and how to best arrange information is very important both for readability and for passing the concept of your game to the reader.

Passion

My best quality is my passion. When I start a project I put myself into it and I’ll see it till the end, staying in touch with the author, correcting imperfections, and providing the correct files for many printing services (I’ve worked with success with DriveThruRPG / Cards / Comics, Print Ninja, Ingram Spark, Amazon Direct Publishing, Comixology, Itch.io).

Paolo’s work on the Italian version of Dungeon World is one of my favorite takes on the game: intricate but clean and full of depth.

I love the creativity & expertise Paolo brought to Impulse Drive. Throughout, he was flexible and patient with a first time publisher. Not only does the book look great, but the experience of working with Paolo was a joy.
