David Provolo – Designer

I believe that book cover design has the power to crystalize and elevate the author's intent and expression.


I'm a designer/art director with a passionate interest in the art and significance of the book cover. In exploring different modes of visual language, I always strive to shepherd the final product to a state of sophistication, dynamism and succinctness.

• the ability to quickly grasp concepts
• highly-adept at incorporating feedback and modifying designs accordingly
• excellent written and verbal communication skills
• a passion and appreciation for the written word

David always got back to me within a reasonable time-frame. He was pleasant and professional in all of our communication. I am pleased that he was willing to work with me producing several concepts before we got to what I wanted. I recommend David to anyone who needs to create a book cover or finalize the design of the book's interior.
