David Provolo - Designer

Guilford, United States

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

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

Possibly one of the most professional individuals I've ever worked with. I'm difficult to work with sometimes when my vision isn't clear, and David worked through all that.

Dave is extremely easy to work with and has amazing talent and creativity. I would highly recommend his work to anyone who wants a cover that makes the reader want to open the book and read it from beginning to end.

David was great to work with, he designed the cover for a story of mine, prepared for digital publication. He captured the essence and the voice of the story immediately and produced a composition that represented the story beautifully. We exchanged ideas on how to finalize the drafts, he promptly made the final touches and in the end, I got a cover that I liked very much. Highly recommend him...

I enjoyed working with David. He did an excellent job in creating an eye catching cover. He gave a variation of ideas and helped me hone in on the 'look' of my novel.

I'm an illustrator, my goal is to catch the atmosphere of a text and bring it onto an intriguing cover.

I'm inspired by old and vibrant colour photos of people wearing beautiful suits, dresses and hats walking around classic architecture.
