In my time I've designed books by many notable authors including Jerry Jenkins, George Barna, R. C. Sproul, A. W. Tozer, C. S. Lewis, Gary Chapman, Kevin Leman, Erwin Lutzer, Alistair Begg, Susan May Warren, and many more.
I can deliver diverse concepts, pushing you to imagine the various possibilities of your book. But if you have a tight, focused vision for the audience I can design to the specifics. Either way, I'll listen carefully to you as you bring the content expertise, and I'll bring the design prowess to make sure the cover attracts the eye and informs the reader.
