Sonia Killik Designs

Self-employed
January, 2000 – Present (almost 18 years)

I love design in all it’s forms – I began my career 17 years ago as a 2D and 3D animator and then branched off into web development and interactive media.

After publishing my first book I delved into the world of publishing and now love helping other authors realise their dream by guiding them through the sometimes overwhelming process of getting your manuscript from raw format, to sitting proudly on the shelves.

I believe in energy and connection and will always treat you as an individual with unique needs and vision, by working together we will take your project from conception through to completion, helping you identify areas in design, formatting and marketing to best showcase your creation.
