Great work as usual.

Phenomenal skill. I hired Mr. Wolf after paying several others for the same task. His work and attention to detail nailed it.

Good designer... good to work with.

This has been my 5th book cover project with Estella ... and I´m still amazed about her skill and creativity (and her patience with difficult clients :)). Highly recommended!

Once again, Mario knocked it out of the park! He hit all the notes of my perfect design: action, paranormal, nautical, fantasy. 10/10, I love working with him.

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."
