“When I posted my project on Elance, I had not expected to be able to hire someone with the experience of Chaz DeSimone. As things would have it, I was able, and I was not disappointed. Hiring Chaz gets you: 1) Decades of experience in the design space, 2) Project after project in the book design space, 3) Marketing expertise, book and otherwise, 4) Clear communication, and constant communication, 5) Recommendations on how to improve your project across all phases, and 6) A final product above and beyond your own vision. Specifically, on my project, Chaz: 1) Walked me through the process of being a first time author - this was priceless, 2) Communicated via phone, Skype, and email to make sure we were both on the same page across the project, 3) Provided constant progress updates, 4) Made recommendations across every part of the book - endorsements, foreword, chapters, and all other parts of the interior, 5) Designed every part of the book in a very cohesive manner, 6) Made recommendations for marketing and PR related activities, and 7) MOST IMPORTANTLY: Did things RIGHT rather than just getting the project done on a timeline. My book began as a side-project when I was giving more attention to another brand I was creating. Chaz's heart for the project, his enthusiasm for his calling with typography, and his willingness to go the extra mile time-after-time directed me to give the book a full-time effort. I'm glad it did. I cannot imagine working on this project with someone other than Chaz. And now that I have, I have more, and full, confidence that my book, along with successive books in the series, will be successful. For any author, and especially for a first time one, you cannot go wrong in hiring Chaz DeSimone.”
