COVER | INTERIOR | ILLUSTRATION πŸ“–Book designer and illustrator specialized in captivating and affordable covers and engaging interiors! πŸ“–



πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ 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!

πŸ“˜ 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 to 3D renders, and illustration. You shouldn't judge a book by its cover... But in this case, you should!

πŸ“– 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 uniquely look at your project, 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 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!

β€’ Covers starting at 300€

β€’ 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: ❗️❗️

β€’ I require around 3-4 weeks in advance to book each project (or more depending on availability).

β€’ 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.

β€’ 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.

β€’ I reply to messages twice a week, 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.

β€’ Collaboration updates are sent once a week, on Monday-Tuesday. Short updates are usually sent a couple of days after your feedback.

β€’ Updates are sent once a week, usually on Monday or Tuesday.

The quality of Natalia's work was exceptional. She took two simple photos a friend of mine took for the front and back cover and she turned them into something really special. It has to be seen to be believed. Her use of the negative space in the back cover for blog and author history was exceedingly well done. Her full cover will definitely catch a reader’s eye and make them want to explore fu...

It was a pleasure working with Natalia; she asked detailed questions and listened to my ideas, delivering workmanship beyond my expectations. I made quite a few changes, and she was patient and understanding, demonstrating sincerity and seriousness concerning my work. I highly recommend her services to any writer, new or already publis...
