A great experience in all ways. The design exceeded my expectations and the designer ensured the artwork not only met my technical parameters but also the mood I was attempting to convey to readers. I had to do some follow ups after receiving the award files as a result of my own oversights and the designer responded quickly and courteously and ensured I got everything I needed. Highly recommended.

I need a book cover redesign based on an older design with new custom illustrations, both ebook and paperback. The back cover needs to have room for two reviews (which I haven't received yet). The paperback is 8.5 inches by 5.5 inches with a .59 inch spine; or, 21.59 cm by 13.97cm with a 15 millimeter spine.
The two door illustrations appear at the beginning and end of the text, respectively. I need two new illustrations in the same style for the back cover; 1. where the marionettes are free and on the ground, the dead one is lying in huddled mass and the living one is standing in awe. 2. The living marionette is looking out the broken door with a sense of wonder. As if he's chosen free will or something. 3. Or maybe you can incorporated both those concept in one illustration. I also need the front cover redrawn and the title and author's name redrawn. The concept is solid but the illustration is sloppy. I want it to look hand drawn. I also want the spine to look hand drawn but cleaned up. At the base of the spine I'd like the trumpet symbol from the logo on the bottom. Despite the title this is a concept book of short stories about choosing free will and overcoming suicidal tendencies. There's more light than darkness.
