Working with Venanzio has been a great experience. He is solid and competent in his delivery and quick to respond to questions and requests. His design stood out from all the others in how different it was from the majority. He was the only one that took the back cover design one step further and integrated our personal symbol into it as well as the front.
Our topic is hope and I believe the use of graphics and light truly inspires hope in people who look at the cover.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I am a journalist who has just written his first novel. I am self-publishing with Amazon's CreateSpace (print on demand) and I need a design that's more inspiring than the one I have created for free using their templates!
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I want a cover for a humorous (satirical) novel called The Incumbent. You can read the first chapter and a brief summary at http://theincumbent.phildobbie.com. I have attached a (typo-ridden) copy of the first five chapters to give you a flavour of the novel.
The back needs to include the summary shown on the current design, also attached, but I may have a couple of quotes from readers to include in a later design, so there needs to be allowance for that.
