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.

Additionally, I deliver all of the qualities to be expected of a professional designer:
• exceptional design/typographic skills and visual sensibility
• 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

Dave is great. He was kind of clairvoyant in is ability to create the book cover that I envisioned in my head. He nailed it right away and I am very pleased with the book cover. He also works quickly. Start to finish I had my book cover in two weeks. A creative, gifted artist.

Dave created a beautiful cover and interior design for my book. He was absolutely on time and available to answer my many questions as new author. He went out of his way to accommodate all my needs, helped me get my ISBN and explained everything in detail. I cannot recommend him highly enough! Thank you Dave!

First he is technically sound for the job he undertook. Secondly he attended to the details that made the job good. He was punctual and fair priced.

This is my second collaboration working with David. He has knocked it out of the park both times! David and I work very well together. I give him a general idea of what I am looking for and then his creativity kicks in. His work is consistently timely, and the quality and appropriateness of his designs are first rate, and his pricing is very, very reasonable. I highly recommend David.
