Lisa Von de Linde - Designer

Dayton, OH, United States

Graphic designer focused on non-fiction/gift/children's genres who crafts book covers, creates page designs + typesets book interiors.

Overview

With a book cover that captivates your audience your success as an author will begin a few steps ahead in the self-publishing world.

My book design process includes resources and referrals throughout our time working together to launch your book. The graphic design services you're investing in will put your book (print OR eBook) at the same level as the books released by big-name publishing houses.

I'm the designer you can count on for your book baby to get launched into the world. My background is in non-fiction, self-help, business books (creative/entrepreneur), gift books, and children's books. Book design has been my main love since dipping my toes into the publishing world in 2003.

Ready to begin creating your irresistible book?

Reach out and say hi.

“Lisa is thorough, quick to respond, kind, engaging...and simply said, fun to work with. She just gets it. She was always upfront about her time, her feedback, and she was true to her word throughout my project. When I needed a hand to hold, she offered one...and she really guided me to making sound decisions that were unique to my children’s book. I look forward to writing the third installment of my series...because I know I can dream bigger with Lisa supporting my cause!” - Marissa K, Dream Big Academy
