We needed a new logo for our company and moonlighter came up with by far the most clever design that we had to choose from. We were very impressed.
Very responsive and an excellent eye for design. Turned around all final edits and requests very quickly, though original design was already quite spot-on what we were looking for. Highly recommend.

Quick, Original en Creative!
99 was completely committed to making my cover work to my satisfaction. I put three designers/8 designs out in a poll to over 200 people and his design was rated the highest. Then he worked even after he won to make some major changes for an even better design. He really made my cover "sing"! He's creative, extremely responsive, and just good to work with. I highly recommend him.

Mario topped 31 other designers to take 1st place in our book cover design contest. From the beginning, it was clear he was operating on an extremely high level. What we didn't realize until later, however, was how incredibly prompt and professional he would be in communications during and after the contest. He's a true gem in every way. We are thrilled with what he has produced.

This book is a collection of my editorial and public affairs writing over the last three decades.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I am about to self-publish a book through Amazon. The printed (glossy cover) soft cover will be 6 inches wide and 9 inches high.
The cover design should be creative but standard for books (title and subtitle & author on front), (title and author last name on spine) and (about 100 words of text and small head shot of author on back).
PLEASE: NO PHOTOS OF BLACKSMITHS IN YOUR DESIGN.
The concept of a "wordsmith" is something like a blacksmith. Both jobs require working with raw material to make something better. But if the cover image looked like a history book about blacksmiths, the casual viewer might be confused and pass it by. That's why the cover design should NOT have a photo of a man banging a hammer on a gavel. I have uploaded an anonymized photo that is the photo that will appear in a small place on the back. Use that FPO and delineate a section on the back for three blurbs of praise for the book and 50 words or so "about the author. (see photo for an example - it doesn't have to look exactly like the example, I'm just showing you the concept."
