Jonathan Lewis – Designer

Avoid the "Self-Published Stigma" through quality design that helps you stand out!

Overview

I'm a book designer specializing in the nonfiction market. My perspective is simple: every good book should have a good cover. If you've written something worth reading, you don't want to hold yourself back with design that makes a less-than-great first impression.


After all, you wouldn't wear your pajamas to a job interview or important presentation! So why not make sure your book looks its best? Because really, your cover is interviewing for its next job and making an important presentation everytime someone looks at it!


My goal is to help my clients achieve a beautiful, compelling book design that will allow them to escape what I call "the self-published stigma." It's all about making that great first impression and building credibility in the market for you, your book, and your message.


Is that what you're looking for? If so, let's talk!


================


I've worked with numerous publishers, including Baker Books, Zondervan, Lifeway, Kregel, Redemption Press, and more.

Jonathan is a delight to work with, always creative and thoughtful in his design. He always goes the extra mile in providing value for our authors. Highly recommended!

I just completed working with Jonathan on the front cover of my book. He took my vision and created something beautiful. He was straightforward to work with on this project. The reactions and responses to my new cover have been fantastic! . . . Thank you, Jonathan.

Working with Jonathan was a delight! He quickly grasped the theme of my book producing a cover that captured the essence of the story I want to convey to my readers. He was very responsive not only in corresponding with me on the cover, but also kind enough to answer questions that I had as a first time author.

Johnathan was very easy to work with and communicate with. Being new to the world of writing, editing, and collaborating with others, I was not as prepared coming into this project as I needed to be. Still, he was very polite and patient with me throughout this project and I am more than pleased with the results. I highly recommend Johnathan for your cover design and interior formatting.
