Awesome artist who was prompt and open to the changes I wanted to make.
Mr. Gesangk met my design request requirements almost immediately and performed his work at the highest level.
I’m grateful because the logo is for new website to promote my new book, Surviving The Blaze.
The image he prepared is of my rescued abused dog, Ziggy, that almost got burned in a fire, is in the heart of the book story and very important to me and my family.
My warmest thanks to him and 99d for making it happen fast and on the budget.
Sincerely, Aaron T.

Artistic way to build / keep tabs on a collection of books that I love.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I am looking to get a bookplate designed that will serve as an actual bookplate (so I'll have several examples printed that are ~4"x6"), but also larger example to be used as a piece of art (maybe 8.5"x11")that I can hang up and display in my library. The 3 components I would like to explore are: 1) for you to create a new, abstract font and run it as an alphabet around the border - with miniatures in the corners if needed; 2) the Words "Ex Libris Taylor Kirkpatrick" worked into the scene somewhere, and 3) a scene that incorporates one of Aesop's Fables into it, perhaps in more of a art nouveau / art deco style (examples: fox and crow, lion and hare, beekeeper, the old hound, fox and grapes, etc.) I've included some fonts for inspiration - even though the are sans serif fonts, I like serifs - and a few other bookplates that are for ideas only. I don't have a preference on colors other than it ought to be legible and attractive.
I wanted to be specific to give you some direction, but I am really hoping you'll get creative and use your artistic license liberally. Thank you for your consideration and I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
