I have worked closely with Louise for over 17 years and she has played a key role in the creative team that built the b small children’s book list. She has extensive experience of book design, from picture books to fiction and non-fiction and among other work for b small, she designed and art directed our best-selling Make & Colour and Make Your Own series. Speedy and utterly reliable, she also understands the editorial process extremely well and so is an all-round contributor to creating books.

Louise is the go-to designer for our children’s language learning books. It’s a huge challenge to design one layout that will work in several different bilingual versions (from English, French and Spanish to German and Chinese!) but Louise handles it brilliantly. From managing our illustrators to managing our editorial staff, I know we’re in safe hands with Louise and that we’ll get perfectly organised files in perfect condition, perfectly on time.

If you’re looking for sensitive, playful and creative design, look no further than Louise Millar. From picture books for small children all the way up to complex projects like The Barefoot World Atlas and even foreign language books, Louise brings her professionalism to every job. As a bonus, her cracking sense of humour is never far away, no matter how many rounds of corrections you request!
Emma Parkin, Director and Co-Founder, Conker House Publishing Consultancy
As a small independent publisher I depend on freelancers and so many jobs require design solutions and that’s where Louise Millar is invaluable. Whether it’s a complete design for a picture book or poetry or laying out a catalogue Louise is creative and reliable. And there are all those last-minute needs too: a poster for an author event or school, an advert, even a business card. She’s full of ideas; I would highly recommend her.
