High quality designs and very professional to work with. Excellent job.
AleMiglio did many edits, early and often, right to the very end with no complaints! He was highly attentive and did a wonderful job. We will certainly work with him again.

This designer was attentive and responsive to each of our small tweaks and kept working until we were completely satisfied with the design. He's super talented and we're very happy with our indie thriller poster for 30 Miles from Nowhere!
Beautiful cover, prompt communication, and adjustments. Will definitely work with again!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I am an author who has spent 4 years conducting a sociological study of MMA (mixed martial arts) fighters. The book about this study is called "Unlocking the Cage" and it will be aimed at sports and martial arts fans
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a book cover designed for "Unlocking the Cage." I believe I know what image I want, but I'm open and will select the best entry. I want this to look as 3D as possible, with the main image being a glove shattering through a cage, very explosive with the wires twisting and blowing out. On the glove's knuckles we want the letters UTC in white, possibly with a bit of blood on one of the letters. I'm imagining the glove should be black. I want the initials to make people think UFC but I don't want to copy the font or style the UFC uses. I'd like good detail on the fist and forearm as the fighter throws the overhand right. His face will be hidden in shadow but he'll be chin down and brow furrowed, barely visible. I'm not sure on this next part, but I think I'd like to see the left gloved hand pulling the wire backward, tearing a giant hole. The top third of the cover should be the title Unlocking the Cage, possibly in gold-type letters, and at the bottom I'd like my name.
The back cover will have a short description (one paragraph) and the rest filled with blurbs. I don't have any requests or ideas on the back cover.
I'm including some of the images attached to Unlocking the Cage, a UFC glove, the type of cage/fence I'm referring to, and a fighter throwing the right hand(not the angle I want but a good look at the intensity) Also included some of my other books (horror, sci-fi) so you can get a feel for what I like.
