Overview

Reviews (2)

I love taking in as much as I can from reading a manuscript in order to design a beautiful, unique cover. I love adding touches of hand done elements to my designs, whether it involves hand writing or cutting something up.

Kevin Chaba

The simplest way I can state my approval and appreciation is by saying that I would love to work with Spencer again. He was very patient and communicated proactively through the process of designing me my first ever book cover, and his artistic passion shines through his work as quality design. I got an amazing value.

The book cover Spencer designed for me is fantastic and I really love it. The work was to a very high quality and I really enjoyed collaborating with him. He was responsive to messages and usually got back to me within 24-hours. I'm definitely going to work with Spencer again and I highly recommend him to others.
