Dominik Nawrocki – Designer

People do judge books by their covers and I know how to make that judgment work in your favor. 10 years exp, in advertising, EFFIE AWARDED


Hi there, I'm Dominik! I am an illustrator, 3D artist and art director with 10 years experience in the creative industry. I specialize in 3D and 2D illustration. I can provide a full creative concept for the overall tone of voice of your book, illustrations and cover. I have designed for such renowned and awarded authors as: Tom Palmer, Robert Swindells, Chris Priestley, Catherine MacPhail, Phil Earle, Bernard Ashley, Linda Newbery, Eric Brown and many more. I can also provide marketing materials design.

I gained experience in advertising working as an art director creating campaigns for big brands like Garnier, Renault, Orange and Nestle, and working as a cover designer in a children's books publishing house Barrington Stoke based in Edinburgh. Many of the brand heroes I've designed for advertising are still extremely popular among kids and teenagers. With my previous advertising experience you can be sure I always work on time! Happy to answer any questions! Please note I only do the Picture-Book interior design!

Could not be more pleased. Extremely responsive to any of my questions in spite of time zone differences. Wonderful product. My only regret is that I did not use this artist for my first book.

Dominik has been a pleasure to work with. His work is thorough and imaginative and I'm pleased as punch with the final result. Would definitely recommend to other authors searching for something a bit different in their cover design!
