Matt was wonderful to work with because he took my ideas and desires for my book cover and made it into a reality. The book cover captures the essence of my book and has attracted readers nationwide. I would recommend him to others based on his communication, suggestions, timeliness and quality of work.

Matt provided an amazing internal design service. This was my first book and I really appreciated his approach to my questions, particularly at the early stages when I had so many of them. An amazing experience and an absolute pleasure collaborating with Matt. I would give him 100 starts if I could!
