Aura Lewis – Designer

Designer and illustrator specializing in beautiful cover design, interior book design, and women's lifestyle illustrations.


As a passionate book cover designer, I will bring your vision and story to life through compelling and thoughtfully crafted designs. My specialty is contemporary and women's fiction as well as memoirs, and I strive to create book covers and interiors that captivate readers and enhance the overall reading experience. I am also an illustrator, so whether you want a photographic approach or a bespoke illustration, I can make your cover stand out and shine. Whether you're an emerging author or an established writer aiming to refresh your brand, I am dedicated to translating the essence of your narrative into stunning visual elements. Let's collaborate to ensure your book not only stands out, but also resonates with your target audience.

Here are some benefits to working with me:

*I have a quick turnaround and respond quickly to all your queries and concerns.

*I will work with you until you are 100% happy- this is your book and I want you to love every aspect of the design, from the typography to the spine to the chapter headers.

The process:

We will begin our collaboration with a phone / video conversation about your project. After understanding your needs, I will create a few design options and color palettes, which we can discuss over email, and update if necessary. Once a direction is approved, I will proceed to the final design cover and interior, until you are fully satisfied. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions. I love artistic collaborations and would be happy to discuss and dive deep into the nitty gritty of your project, until we come up with the best results together!

I highly recommend Aura and would love to use her again if I write future books. She is talented and did a great job on my book cover and interior design.
