Memoir Books

From stories of loss, love, and addiction, to business, health, and travel—memoirs are one of those book design projects we feel uniquely connected to. To truly do a memoir book justice, a designer must not only have book layout design expertise and talent. They must also provide a personalized one-on-one experience, offering guidance in both the design and publishing spaces. At Mayfly, this is the exact kind of customized service we offer. Because memoir book layout design is about much more than just formatting words on a page. It’s about collaborating together to produce a stunning book that captures your story in a way that feels unique to you.

We will help you create a giftable book that can be showcased alongside any of the bestsellers on the market today.

A Well-Defined Process Makes Us Easy to Work With

We work hard to make sure your entire experience working with us is an enjoyable one, from the first phone call to the final delivery of your product. To us, that means having a well-defined process and schedule that is easy to follow, with the goal of making your time working with us enjoyable (and fun!)

Our process involves:

  • An easy-to-follow schedule outlining all deliverables and deadlines
  • Regular status calls throughout your project
  • A dedicated line of communication to your designer
  • A clear outline of all steps in the book design layout process

Clear Communication & Collaboration

Communication and collaboration are essential to the success of your project, which is why you will have direct access to a team specifically dedicated to your project throughout the entire book design process. Your team will be there to answer any questions you have along the way and will discuss all potential challenges that might be encountered with your book layout in advance, keeping you in the loop at all times. All of our designers love collaborating with authors, helping you to select which elements in your memoir will best capture your vision and the experience you want for your reader.

We can help select or create any of the following:

  • Images
  • Captions
  • Headings/subheadings
  • Footnotes
  • Tables and figures

Our team can also help you with any front- or backmatter, including a dedication, acknowledgments, table of contents page, glossary, index, and an author page as a final close to your story.

Publishing and Editorial Assistance

If you’re looking for help beyond the book design process, we can guide you through the numerous other steps in your journey, including book publishing services.

We are happy to assist you with any of the following services:
