Overview

I am a designer and illustrator specialising in book covers, typesetting, and internal layout design. I have been an illustrator and designer for 9 years working with the top publishers including Bloomsbury, Simon and Schuster and HarperCollins. I currently work part-time for a publisher as a designer and illustrator, and freelance the rest of the time! Every other spare second is spent trying to stop my cats from sitting on my keyboard and deleting my life's work.

I provide cover design, internal layout design and also typesetting. My aim is to create fun, unique and engaging solutions that catch the eye. I believe that detail is vital to a great cover and that a book should feel really special to own. I'd love to work with you on bringing your next project to the shelves!

Absolutely superb experience. Becka is a great communicator and a fantastic designer who immediately grasped the vision for my book cover design. Would not hesitate to recommend. Looking forward to working together in the future - thanks for all your help! Cheers, Rory

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Becka. We are not quite done yet, mostly because my map isn't ready. I love that she has provided samples along the way and listens to my feedback and makes the changes. She also had a brilliant suggestion that adds so much to the book. I would definitely recommend her and will use Becka again for future projects.
