I'm a book and marketing designer with 8 years of industry-specific experience. I work with authors and publishers, helping them develop book covers and brand-based marketing goods. I take pride in the fact that people do judge a book by it's cover, it has a direct influence on sales!

When my nose isn't stuck in a book I design corporate reports, posters, advertising campaigns, and other marketing materials that help content creators connect with their target audience. Whether you need help with a print project or a digital design solution, you're in the right place. With almost a decade of design experience to draw on, my specialty is providing creative solutions that involve the careful balancing of imagination, risk, and practicality.

Sarah was incredibly prompt and thorough in all our interactions. She was also very flexible when things changed unexpectedly and committed to the ultimate goal of getting my book out the door. I was particularly impressed by the quality of her interior design; the book we worked on together (self-published) looked leaps and bounds better than my first book (professionally published).

Sarah has responded quickly to every request I made. As this is my first experience in publishing a book, I needed lots of guidance and she was very patient in explaining what needed to be done and encouraging me every step of the way. If I ever write another book I will certainly hire Sarah.

Her ideas and design far exceeded anything I could have imagined. She also handled all the book production with a flawless attention to detail (even when my mistakes created extra work for her). I worked with Sarah for several months and she...
