Very easy to work with, adjustments were made when needed. Great work!
Amazing Job!!! Great clean work and people loved my end product
Avanska is incredibly quick and responsive as well as creative and helpful. I recommend Avanska to anyone wanting a great design and great designer to collaborate with!
Working with Shuma was great, every little finishing touch was done quickly. I love the design. It was a stand out from the start, even with so many talented designers this is the one we kept coming back to. Shuma really got the idea I wanted to convey. I'm super happy.

HI! My name is Linda Pike. I’m a sales professional and sales trainer who, after many lectures and seminars (finally) decided to get my ideas out there and share my techniques and experience with those new to the industry.
If I had to describe what I do and what my book is about simply, I’d say that I simply want to help people become more confident. Whether it’s in their selling ability or their communication, the name of the game is confidence. Confidence lets your personality and authenticity shine when we talk to customers. It makes our approach energetic and exciting. If you can learn to harness that confidence and learn to love your product…well there isn’t anything you can’t sell!
Let’s Chat is a book for novices in sales. These people may have potential, but they haven’t quite learned to harness that confidence and really leverage their talent and personality in their approach. The book covers the sales experience from beginning to end, covering topics like greeting and closings, asking for the sale, and overcoming objections.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
A book cover, front, back and spine in the standard 6x9 trade paperback size. The book is 125 pages long, so it will probably be relatively thin.
You have creativity to explore different styles, from photography to iconography to illustration but there are some considerations I wanted to share so you understand what qualities I want to express to buyers and readers.
Ultimately, the design should represent that art of communication and confidence but it should also be a reflection of me and my personality. After all, there are a million sales books and (much like myself) I want it to stand out. My book is for professionals, but I’d like to give it a more personal, human feel…like I’m calling out to the reader speaking with them one-on-one. I wouldn’t represent the cover (or myself honestly) with primary colors. That’s too basic. I want it to be bright and vibrant like me. When I get into the field I’m powerful, direct and outspoken, and never afraid to speak my mind.
