Nate Myers – Designer

Accomplished designer based in the Pacific Northwest specializing in book cover design, book layout and children's book illustration.


I'm a children's book illustrator with a background in graphic design based in the Pacific Northwest. I've worked in publishing for the last 20 years and enjoy bringing my creativity and organic, whimsical style to every project I work on. I currently provide freelance design and illustration services to multiple independent publishers. My experience designing book covers and book layouts gives me a unique perspective in not just illustrating but knowing how the illustrations should work with the text to deliver a seamless experience for the reader.

My love for nature, music, and pop culture, along with my lifelong fascination with dinosaurs, provide an endless source of inspiration which reflects in my work. I believe all great art should evoke an emotional response and that’s my goal with every illustration I make. Let’s discuss how we can work together to create effective illustrations that allow your story to truly connect with people.

Nate was truly a life saver! He came on board in the middle of my project that was a bit 'messy' at the time and he was willing to go the extra mile to help bring it to completion. Nate is extremely professional, positive, responsive and it was his skill set that brought the illustrations to life. I would highly recommend Nate to anyone.

I could not be more pleased with the work that Nate Myers did for my book. He listens, captures your ideas and brings them to life. As a new author, with a type A personality, Nate made the process so seamless. He is patient, meets deliverables and, when asked, will offer his opinion.
