We have worked with Zoe on a number of projects and we couldn't be happier with the work she has created for us. Her attention to detail and willingness to do what ever is needed to bring the project to life is brilliant. Thank you Zoe
Working with this designer was a delight. He submitted by far the best design out of almost 20 entries. I asked for slight tweaks on colors and icons and he was very responsive and courteous. I'm looking forward to working with him again on future projects.
I'm very happy with Meg's professional work on the interior design of my book Doctor on Trial: The Landmark Battle for Medical Freedom of Choice. She promptly responded to my emails and demonstrated patience and perseverance with my additions. I highly recommend her.
Love working with this designer. So attentive & focused on providing what we want as a brand.

I write American Civil War novels for ages teen through adult for the US market.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a book cover for the second novel in an American Civil War trilogy. I have uploaded two previous book covers. One can easily see both books are by the same author, so I would like to maintain that consistent branding. The cover font is Mrs Eaves Smart Lig Bold, originally supplied by Grey Matter.
The title of the book is "Prairie Dog Town." Much of the book takes place in the city of Vicksburg, Mississippi during the siege of 1863, when many of the residents lived in caved dug in the ground. This explains the title. Many recent photos of Vicksburg and the National Military Park may be found on the gallery page of my website at http://www.kbacon.com. Old photos of Vicksburg may be found on the Library of Congress website at https://www.loc.gov/collections/civil-war/. Just search on Vicksburg. I have attached one such image to show what it was like, but don't limit your creativity just to using that photo on the cover.
I would like the overall cover color to be a shade of white, ivory, or light gray. Our national colors are red, white, and blue. The cover of the first book of the trilogy was red, the second will be white (or ivory or light gray), and the third will be blue.
Note also how the cover of "Until Shiloh Comes" has one brass eagle button for book one. I would like two such buttons to appear on the cover in the same location for "Prairie Dog Town."
