Professional design and layout for the publishing and self-publishing community

Established in 1995, Blot Publishing is owned and run by Leigh Forbes.

Leigh landed her first publishing job in the summer of 1988, when page elements were still being physically copied and pasted, and the days were spent getting heady on the smell of spray adhesive.

In 1995, Leigh went freelance, starting Blot Publishing in a corner of the lounge. Since then, she has worked for a wide range of clients – from indie authors to multinational corporations – on projects that have taken her around the world. Although she has dabbled in web development through the years, her greatest love has always been the simple joy of typography. She still loves every project.

Leigh lives in Sussex with her three children, a lazy cat, and a loftful of mice.
