“Thank you for another terrific job! Stevenpdesign created the cover for my book which I was thrilled with, but then I had another provider complete the interior typesetting which was no where near the standard of the cover. So I came back to Steven to do a v2 of my interior as I was confident that he could make it look professional with a touch of design flair. Steven has transformed the interior of my book. He is clearly very knowledgable and went above and beyond in suggesting ways that I could improve it (eg. Pulling out quotations for each chapter, adding notes pages at the end of chapters, improving margins and line spacing, etc). I am thrilled with the final book. Now the interior looks as good as the cover!
If you're looking for an expert to make your book look great inside and out - I would highly recommend Steve. He knows his stuff, is great to work with, and I think good value for the high quality outputs.
Thanks again Steve!”
“I am thankful to have met Lisa, my first client on Elance. Lisa, I am glad we were able to complete you book and make it look like it should look so that you are completely satisfied. It has been a privilege and wonderful working with you. I wish you great success in passing on the wisdom of your book and hope we get to do it again!”
“MarriageDevelop has been so great to work with and was my first client, believing in me to produce a great cover for her. She has been a special client to me ever since and will continue to be a client who I look forward to working with. I would encourage you in working with MarriageDevelop if you give it 100%, if not, don''t bother. Great client!!!”
“Thank you Steve for a terrific job on my book cover!
I selected Steve for my book cover design - largely based on his portfolio which had some very good professional covers with a range of projects that demonstrated his versatility, but also because he took the time to get to know my project and visit my website prior to submitting his proposal.
I knew that I was looking for a "professional" and unique cover, as I was going to be self-publishing and my book is a key part of promoting my business - but while I had some ideas of what I wanted, I didn't yet have in mind the specific graphic treatment that would work best.
Steve's work was definitely value-add and we got to a terrific end design that I know I wouldn't have gotten to without him. As we went through various iterations, Steve was very responsive to my feedback and always provided timely revisions that then sparked new ideas. It was a very productive journey to a great end product. Can't fault anything in the process or in Steve's design work.
Steve had indicated that he would complete the front cover in 2 weeks - which he did spot on. (Though from the time that he provided first comps to our final agreed comp was even shorter - only 4 days)
If you are looking for a book cover designer that provides alot of value-add I would highly recommend Steve. While some other designers had lower bids and faster turnarounds, I really still feel that I got quality and value for money from him with the unique work he produced. I'll be using him again.
