Hey, I'm Travis! I'm a book designer and map illustrator with 8 years of experience in the traditional publishing industry. And I'm here to help you make books! I work hard to over-communicate with my clients, so you always know what's going on. And I value the time and money you put into my work; my goal is for you to love the process and the end result.
Read on for more about my services!
I’m a map maker with absolutely no real-life cartography experience. I specialize in fantasy map illustration for the stories that pull the reader into a new universe. Bring me the worlds you’ve been creating in your novel, video game, or D&D campaign, and I’ll transform your dreams into a tangible masterpiece. My style is unique to each and every map, tailored to meet your vision. I am determined to make sure you are 100% satisfied with the end result.
Interior Design: both print and ebook
Whether it’s typesetting a manuscript or designing an activity book, it takes a certain kind of neat freak to keep everything clean and consistent across 500 pages. That's where I come in! I use InDesign to design pages with unique chapter openers, section breaks, front matter and back matter with art and decoration—stylized for the genre and tone and themes of the story.
Cover Design: front cover and full book mechanicals
**NOTE: I am not taking on fantasy or sci-fi covers at this time, for any age group. Send me your non-fiction, memoirs, and children's!
I like to push the boundaries of design and typography—always trying new ideas and striving to create something never seen before. And everyone could use more options. My goal is to give you as many unique concepts as I can, and we work from there. From striking imagery to typography that demands attention, every element is thoughtfully curated to convey the heart and soul of your book.
