Jack Baker has enormous talent, imagination and artistry. His work product, a cover for my historical novel, is superb. Far above and beyond expectations. And Jack is super easy to work with, and quickly gets on your wave length. Very professional. I highly recommend him. I also hope to have an opportunity to work with him again on a new project.

Jack was the perfect blend of enthusiasm, sheer artistic talent and professionalism that I was looking for in a cover designer. From the get-go, I realised I struck gold with him. Jack is a fantastic listener, a superb artist and a down to earth and professional individual that designed the perfect cover for my book and brought my vision to life. It was a pleasure working with him.

I chose Jack because his creativity and graphic art skills really stand out. He has been extremely professional and communicates very well at every stage of the design. He is flexible and listens carefully to his clients. I will continue to use Jack for the cover design of my series of books, The James Macrae Thriller Series.'

Excellent work, clear communication, frequent updates, and very reasonably priced. I definitely look forward to using Jack's capable and thorough skill set in the future. He works extremely well with feedback, references, and truly seeks to understand before he makes changes so he can get you what you want in as few iterations as possible.
