I'm very happy with my design! Valentina is an amazing designer and met my top expectations! NL
I love this design. Milan showed marvelous creativity -- he created the theme for a book cover with only minimal references and no guidelines and managed to fit the author's imagination.

All design work was excellent.
I'm very happy with Meg's professional work on the interior design of my book Doctor on Trial: The Landmark Battle for Medical Freedom of Choice. She promptly responded to my emails and demonstrated patience and perseverance with my additions. I highly recommend her.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
"Stillness" is a debut poetry collection, and I hope to reach a wide audience of poetry lovers and non-readers alike. Many of the poems are short, and the poems highlight the silence within every moment. I would like to find a minimalist but eye-catching book cover that will allow people to understand that "Stillness" is a book that, if given the proper time, space, and thought, might bring a bit of peace, hope, and silence into their lives.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I would like a book cover/book sleeve (front and back) designed for my forthcoming collection, "Stillness."
Stillness is a poetry collection that invites us to return to the silence present within every moment. There are five central themes explored within this work: Possibility, Love, Letting Go, Renewal, and Home.
The poems presented within these five themes explore memories, desires, and the need or greater mindfulness in life. I'd love to see book covers that pay homage to some of the most traditionally "still" thoughts, landscapes, or icons, while remaining unique and modern at the same time.
Please view the attachment for front cover text and possible back cover text. Please note that we are still generating back-cover content, and we'll need to find a designer who is flexible and who can add in our back-cover copy once the design is finalized.
If possible, I'd like to work with a designer who can create a unique non-stock-image design.
