Overview

I am a book cover designer with more than 20-year experience, working for publishers and independent authors worldwide. Among my current clients are Penguin-Random House and Tuttle. I find working with independent authors to be a rewarding experience because I can establish a direct bridge between literature and visual art. My goal is not only to be able to translate visually the contents of the book, but also to help authors promote their work by creating compelling and enticing covers.

What an artistic vision Xavier has!!! I gave him excerpts and and he transformed them into the meat and bones of what needed to be conveyed to entice readers with genre, theme, and plot. Wow! Also, the process was very fast since he got my concept so quickly. I highly recommend working with Xavier!!!

It is very easy to find cover designers who conform to genre and there are many "safe" choices. What drew me to Xavier was the artistic nature of his covers. I am pleased to report I am thrilled beyond belief at the quality and character of all three covers (to redesigns and one new for a series I will market together). They are gorgeous and I can't wait to debut them.

Again, Xavier did a great job at adapting my cover to both Audible and Hardcover versions. I really loved worked with him for his talent, patience, and punctuality. I feel that the resulting covers speak for themselves. I would definitely work with Xavier again in the future.

Xavier did a great job for me and my book. The book cover was very inspired and I think it is one of the strong points of the book now. Xavier was very punctual in his communication and patient in dealing with every iteration and fix requested.
