🙋‍♀️ Book designer with more than 5 years of experience working with publishers and independent authors, building book layouts, covers, and illustrations. Work with genres such as fiction, romance, poetry, children's literature, experimental works, and many more! I'm comfortable with working with a variety of topics, from children to adult books. Bring your idea and we will make it a reality!

📘 A cover is the most visual interpretation of a book, and it needs to express all the ideas and feelings that the title has. Before starting a project, I always make sure I understand to the fullest what the author wants and what the book needs, and translate that into an appealing and heartwarming visual project - using every tool available, from photo manipulation, 3D renders, and illustration. You shouldn't judge a book by its cover... But in this case, you should!

📖 Who said that the inside of a book should have that same, carbon-copy, boring design? When working with the inner layout of the book, rest assured that I will look at your project in a unique matter, designing an interesting and appealing layout that fits with the aim of your title.

✏️ A children's picture book, a collection of poems, or even a high-fantasy adventure: is your book in need of illustration to help to bring it to life? I work with a variety of drawing styles and approaches, custom to every project. From colorful illustrations for kids, delicate line drawings, elegant watercolor scenes, or even complex maps and schematics, let me help you retell your story visually with illustrations!

• Covers starting at 300€
• Illustrations at 50€
Possible discounts for extensive projects with multiple elements!

❗️ A couple of details to keep in mind about my work approach and schedule:
• I require around 2-3 weeks in advance to book each project (or more depending on availability).
• The minimal collaboration period is 6 weeks, with at least 2 installments (40% upfront and 60% at the end). New projects will most always start and end on a Monday.
• Due to timezone differences, (I reside in Europe, CET) our replies will probably have a gap if you are from a different continent. For that reason, I prefer to keep communications messages only, as the timezone difference would make it harder to schedule a video conference.
• I reply to messages every 2-3 days in order of arrival, so I kindly ask you not to spam, as your email will go back into the reply order! I also don't check the messages during the weekend.
• Collaborations updates are sent once a week, on Monday-Tuesday. Short updates are usually sent a couple of days after your feedback.

Natalia was such a joy to work with! She took my jumbled ideas and made them into something cohesive and beautiful. I had a chance to review both the cover design and interior typesetting through a couple rounds of review, and she took all of my feedback and produced a final project that was better than I could have hoped for. I look forward to working with her again for my second poetry col...

I like Natalia! We worked seamlessly last year on THE AGE OF GUISE, a Glimpse into Americana. It was just a few months after that we mentioned THE RISE OF LONGBOW. She was excited to be involved with it. And I felt good about working with her again!!!! The issues on this last project began immediately with her response time. She responded to emails every ten days. In fact, th...
