"Working with Natasja was one of the better experiences I’ve had as an author working with cover artists. She was quick and professional in providing me with the first mock up. When I asked for a change she was equally quick to provide the changes and get them back to me. I was re-branding the book and she knew that it required a fast turn around. I would highly recommend Natasja to anyone needing a cover."
Rod Carstens (Author of 'Dispatches of a Future War')
Hi authors and publishers! I'm a professional award winning Book Cover Designer. A good cover design is the first thing a potential buyer sees! I strongly believe your digital or print novel deserves the best. For you, for optimized visibility, and ultimately . . . sales and new readers!
I'm a graphic designer with over 10 years of experience in the book cover design world helping numerous self-published authors stand out with their books with eye-catching covers.
My expertise includes all aspects and stages of book cover design from creating new, customized e-book covers from scratch (using one or more royalty free stock pictures that I can alter and blend for a unique image), choosing or changing fonts, to changing existing provided photo's or covers. Every book cover is customized to perfection to fulfill the author's wishes through multiple rounds of design and refinements. I offer both e-covers and full paperback jackets (front, back and spine) and will send everything in the right format (jpg, png or pdf), size and dpi needed to upload on Amazon and CreateSpace (or any other platform) so you don't have to worry about a thing.
I also offer 3D images for your box set, or single book 3D image with fancy background, or plain, with or without shadow and effects, for your marketing purposes. If you need a banner or a logo I can also do that!
I'm proficient in Adobe Creative Suit (Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop) and top expert in Microsoft Publisher, and Paint. In addition the books with my covers have been bestsellers and award winners, and most have helped authors top the charts.
I am kind, creative, highly flexible, fast and very deadline orientated. I look forward to helping you with your book cover!
"Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it, and lived and dreamed with it."
