Mark Thomas - Designer

Cardiff, United Kingdom

A highly collaborative designer, producing impactful covers, interiors and marketing images for a wide range of genres. I cannot scuba dive.

Overview

Reviews (46)

A book cover and interior format designer, with many (many!) years of multi-discipline creative experience in graphics, illustration, photography, video & marketing.

Happy working for either print or e-book / digital, I like direct, punchy and – occasionally – intriguing (in my book covers!). Oftentimes my work is character-focussed and photographically-based.

On occasion, some of my work may now include little bits of CGI. (Oh, my giddy Aunt... '.' )

Client-centric, highly collaborative and quality driven: your needs are mine to fulfil (and are normally fulfilled quickly, too).

All of my design offers - whether for e-book, print, or both - always include promotional images such as simulated 3D book covers, on-tablet device renders, Twitter and Facebook social media banners. Nice!

I provide full interior formatting services for both print and ebook; whether with cover design or just interiors only. For such work, a first proof interior proof is normally back to the client with 2-3 working days, from receipt of manuscript.

I can also offer input and advice on technical print matters, marketing options and even books titles, if necessary.

My motto: always a pleasure, never a chore. *nods*

:-)

Full Service List:

Any or all of the following services can be commissioned either together, or totally separately from each other (a good example here: if another designer is already doing your book cover design, I’m totally happy to do the interior formatting elements…)

Print book cover design
Ebook cover design
Print book interior formatting & design
Ebook interior formatting & design
Book promotional images (ie: simulated images of your finished print book or ebook)
Author websites (more in 2018): I've just developed & completed my first few author websites. These include various pages, image galleries, blogs, contact forms and more.
