Ashley Siebels – Designer

You need a unique, bold book cover that inspires people to click "buy." I need authors who are ready to take a creative leap. Message me.


In the past, I've worked as a book cover designer for Write Bloody Publishing, America's largest independent poetry publishing house, a designer for NPR’s Austin affiliates KUT and KUTX, Gap Online, an editorial illustrator for online publications in New York City, and the Design Director for The Democratic National Committee. Currently, I'm a Senior Art Director at Bully Pulpit Interactive.

But I wasn't always a designer, in the past, I've also worked as an interactive producer and developer for great companies like PUNY Entertainment, Allen Interactions, and Carlson Marketing Worldwide. These experiences have been invaluable to me as a designer who works with a diverse portfolio of clients every day. I prioritize clear and extensive communication and managing expectations with everyone that I work with.

In my spare time, you can catch me writing for Boogiemanja, a sketch comedy collective in NYC.

Although the process took longer than expected and exceeded my requested deadline, in the end, Ashley delivered a book cover that I was very happy with. She took my initial idea and gave me an improved version of it. From the beginning, she told me that she would deliver something based on my idea, but she would also create several alternatives based on her own creativity. It was one of her ide...

She understood what I was searching for and created something truly beautiful and unique. During our time together she recommended examing the covers and sitting with it to make a better decision... which is great idea... turns out that she is so talented that I en...
