Overview

Reviews (9)

As an avid reader, book cover design quickly became a great passion of mine. For me designing covers has been the pinnacle of my career. I feel at home there and get excited when I have the opportunity to show the world what the words inside each book I work on contains!


One thing you'll notice when viewing my work is that there are multiple repeat authors. That's because I strive to create unique, one-of-a-kind designs. It is my goal to provide a great experience and a great product for every client I work with. Flexible, quick and easy going, I am fully capable to meet all of the specs and requirements for any cover that comes my way.

Another thing you'll notice is that I don't have a specific style. From illustration to photo manipulation, I try to be as versatile as possible so I can meet any client's needs.

Please don't hesitate to ask questions or for a quote!

Jake is designing at a level that you can put the project in his hands and let him handle the project, which is what I did. I told him the core concepts of the book and the audience I want to attract. He did the rest. So far, people who have seen the cover art love it, and I have no doubt that sentiment will carry over to potential readers.

Jill Keene

Can't say enough wonderful things about Jake. His work is intuitive, creative, and gorgeous. He is responsive and easy to work with as well. He is the most professional collaborator I have worked with and he won't settle until his client is happy. You couldn't ask for better than Jake!

Michelle Winkler

I have no complaints about Jake. I'm a first time author and was a little nervous about my first book cover, both in how it would turn out and what it would be like to deal with a professional designer. I need not have feared. He was thorough, professional, and produced amazing quality work. I initially chose him, in part, because of the wide variety of styles in his portfolio. He did not disap...
