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.
I was very happy with this design, and I appreciate working with the designer. I would recommend this designer.

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."
