Hello I'm Bailey, a Canadian book designer specialising in illustration based out of Paris, France.

As a book designer I have had the opportunity (and distinct pleasure) of working across many styles. Each book demands a unique treatment considering not only genre conventions but the author's voice, audience expectations, themes and motifs, and current design trends. Keeping this in mind, my objective is simple: client satisfaction and quality production.

I love colour, illustration, wacky typography, minimalism and hand-lettering which is a great fit for romance novels, children's books, cozy mysteries, non-fiction, and contemporary novels.

I hold degrees in both graphic design and English Literature. I am a visual storyteller, illustrator, and meticulous typographer. I help authors bring their vision to life, and I’m ready to help you!


 I charge a rate of €500. I’m open to a payment plan if you prefer.

 Your package includes:

-ebook cover design print cover design based on template of your distribution service/s illustration services
-unlimited revisions (I really want you to be happy with the end result and will work until we get it right!)
-3D book mockups for marketing

Once again, Bailey did a fabulous job with the cover of my book. She perfectly captured the setting, the characters, and the feeling of the story. Not only does it fit in with the "brand" I've established for my previous series of romantic comedies, it stands out as the first book in a new series.

I am absolutely thrilled with the results, and have received some extremely complimentary feedback about the illustrations and layout of the covers from family, friends and fellow-writers.

Once again, Bailey did a fabulous job -- this time with the third book in my romantic comedy series. I love her careful attention to detail and her gorgeous use of color. I've had a lot of people compliment me on my book covers, and it's all due to her marvelous work!

Bailey was absolutely lovely and professional to work with. In addition to reading my entire manuscript, she clearly synthesized all of the information I had given her as inspiration and created something that was unique and beautiful, and exactly what I was looking for and perfect for my purposes. I highly recommend Bailey and would definitely use her again in the future.
