Overview

I run Studio Guerassio, an independent design & branding studio. I love helping people (and businesses) uncover their visual voice. Part of that is helping authors find the perfect cover for their book. As an avid reader, I know the importance of a good book cover in drawing people in. It doesn't matter how good the story is between the pages if you can't get someone to pick up the book in the first place. I can also help with getting an author website set up.
