Asya was great to work with. She came up with a unique cover design that resonated strongly with me and she also created a fantastic internal layout and design. A pleasure to work with and I recommend Asya highly for both cover design and internal layout.

Asya is my go-to book designer. However, I did receive a couple of unforced errors in some of the last files she returned to me, so I proofread her work.
Asya B.
Great working with you again and I appreciate the extra time you took to proofread the work.
