This is my second time working with Elisa now, and once again when opening the file of the completed work I am blown away and so, so happy with the results. Elisa is a great listener, innovative, creative and adaptable. If you are looking for a competent designer to create the internal artwork/format of your book for a fair price, then I would highly recommend working with Elisa.

I would definitely recommend Elisa, she is a jack of all trades she really can do it all. Elisa created a brilliant illustration design and her formatting skills are as good as it gets. Elisa is great to work with, always responds sharply and nothing seems to be to much for her, I changed things around quite a lot while working on this project and nothing ever felt too much, 5 stars all around.

It was great working with Elisa on my first book cover. She helped me a lot with all my innocent queries and then guided me through to a hard copy cover which I am really happy with. Would recommend her highly!
