About

I'm a professional graphic designer, who specializes in book covers.
Having worked in the design industry for over 15 years I have collaborated with hundreds of authors and publishers alike, making both book covers and the advertising materials that you’ll need to help promote your book. I have a deep love for books and this makes me enjoy and put care into my work.

Interested in working with me?
Just drop me a line and we can discuss about your new project!
