I am a book cover designer, with 7 years experience. The quality of my work is confirmed by the regular wins and finals of my covers. I work with authors all over the world, including the largest market - USA and Canada.

I did it myself. I got my experience working for traditional book publishers, which are leaders in the industry - Simon & Schuster, Inc. (US), HarperCollins Publishers (US), Penguin Random House (US), Penguin Random House Canada.

I specialize in genres such as Thriller / Horror / Mystery and Fantasy.

My tools are Photoshop, Illustrator, my experience and of course my creativity.

In parallel with my career at the biggest publishers, I am developing my own studio to work with independent authors. Just contact me to get a unique design for your book.

Best regards,
Stanislav Snihur

His work is AMAZING. Iā€™d definitely use him again for his cover designs. My only problem is the delayed response time and having to remind him of something a couple of times before it was addressed. But like I said, the work was amazing and the images are amazing. My cover looks exactly how I envisioned it! He brought my cover to life!

Yes, it's true that because of the different time zones, communication was disrupted. I will work to make sure this does not happen again. Thank you for your comment, it will help me get better!

Stanislav provide excellent creative insights and great work! He has made my book come to life with great graphics. I can't wait to work with him again on another project šŸ˜€

Stanislav was great! He replies immediately and takes suggestions seriously. I was always afraid of saying, "that's good, but, can we change one more thing?" But I shouldn't have been because he was willing to work on the concept until it was right. Thanks Stanislav!
