Annemieke is my go-to designer. This is the third cover I've asked her to design for me, and I could not be happier with the results. All three of the covers she's designed for me have been perfect. She's easy to work with, amazingly talented, and always a pleasure to work with.

Renee Hartleib
If you are waffling between two or three different designers (as I was, after getting initial quotes), and are currently reading reviews, I have an important piece of advice for you. Choose Annemieke! I am SO happy that I did and here's why: she is super talented with an eye for detail and also happens to be an incredible human being. As a first-time author, I needed someone to show me the ro...

I absolutely loved working with Annemieke! Her ability to connect the content and feel of my book "Trash Talk" to a visual image was extraordinary. She also did an amazing job on the interior design, providing line drawings that brought the whole project together. She held our agreed upon timelines and communicated clearly through each step of the process. I'll 100% work with her again!

I had a very challenging manuscript with tables and illustrations and can’t thank Annemieke enough for hanging in there with me and my many wishes and suggestions. She is super nice and I really appreciated her patience and flexibility as I wanted to change things around along the way. She made an effort to get the best outcome and suggested c...

Annemieke was so easy to work with it. She was as accommodating as she is talented. I had a few hiccups of my own making along the way, being a new author and all, and she took them in stride. She always got back to me promptly, answered my many questions (most of which I should have already known) and was very patient while doing so. As for the cover, it's perfect! I went in with a very vague ...
