Amanda Guerassio - Designer

Austin, TX, United States

I'm a designer of 10+ years, an unabashed bookworm, and I would love to design your cover. I specialize in photo- and type-based covers.

Overview

I run Studio Guerassio, an independent design & branding studio focused on the lifestyle sector. 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 offer a la carte cover design if all you need is a cover. I also have a design bundle specifically for indie and self pub authors that meets other marketing needs. It includes not only book cover design, but promo graphics for social media, a bookmark design, and an author website. If you are interested in this bundle, ask me about The Pageturner bundle.
