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 great. He offered two excellent, and very different concept pieces and then worked with me to make edits to the one I chose. Superior work at a very reasonable cost. I highly recommend Jonathan as a book cover artist.

Jonathan was great to work with. He worked well within my budget, kept me informed, asked for feedback on the design, and provided a print-ready PDF. I highly recommend him!

This collaboration was improved. It began on time and communication was better. Other than communication lags (though I think we are also on different sides of the globe) the work is exemplary and I would recommend Jonathan to anyone.

Jonathan was great once we got started. His work exceeded my expectations, but our thoughts on communication differed a bit. I am most likely an over-communicator, but that was my only issue. I would recommend him to anyone.
