Natalia Junqueira – Designer

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



🙋‍♀️ 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.

Getting a cover designed, formatting and output is a ball ache. Achey testis galore... Not with Natalia. She is incredibly professional, constantly in contact and most importantly, her output is utterly utterly breathtaking. Don't take my word for it, check out her other reviews and cover designs. I didn't really have much of an idea of what I wanted, I dropped some stuff, themes and poin...

It was a pleasure working with Natalia. Even though a few mistakes were made. They were always corrected. And her work is amazing enough to come back for more. Especially when we collaborated so well together. We constantly kept building off of each other's ideas. She has earned as a go-to for all of my projects. I can't wait to work with her again.

Natalia did a great job of the cover for my debut novel Out of Shadows. Communication was clear and easy throughout, and Natalia was always open and responsive to any feedback I gave during the process. Natalia took the vague ideas and scribbles I had done myself and created something I'm really pleased with. I'm particularly happy with the font for the title. Thanks!

Natalia was easy to work with and was able to help me in areas I was unfamiliar with myself! When we hit a road block or I wanted something different - She kept pushing until the job was done! I would definitely recommend Natalia to anyone else struggle to self publish on their own!
