Overview

If you want the book you poured your heart into to have more than a stock photo for a cover, then you've come to the right place!

Hello there! I'm Jameela Wahlgren, a freelance illustrator and designer with 5 years of experience working with publishers, authors and art directors. My past clients include Disney Hyperion, Hachette Book Group, Pinterest, National Geographic Kids, Urban Outfitters and more. Recently I've been thrilled to design the book covers for New York Times bestselling author Tamara Ireland Stone's middlegrade series Click'd.

My formal education is in graphic design and I bring that expertise to the table when tackling each project. Your story, your readers and your message are all considered carefully starting with my first sketches all the way through to the final product.

When we work together you'll be working with someone who is in this field because she loves books as much as you do.
