Very satisfied with working with Xavier. He submitted more than one excellent idea for a cover for my memoir and was happy to discuss with me which one to develop further. His communication was always friendly, engaged, helpful, quick and professional, and I'm very satisfied indeed with the result.

I think Xavier creates art with his book covers, art that elevates the material.

He has been excellent in communicating and I appreciate the amount of thought he’s put into the work so far.
