He was very responsive and provided whatever changes we needed. We highly recommend him!
I love my cover! I picked up my hard copy proof from the printer today and it looks even better in print than on screen. Simply stunning. Couldn't be happier. Thank you!
LAYOUT.INC was wonderful to work with!!! I Highly recommend. They always got back to me immediately, was always so nice, attentive, and listened to all feedback. I couldn't have asked for better and I would definitely use again!
CsapoDesign was great to work with and quickly made revisions as needed. Many Thanks for creating a great design!
Excellent looking forward to working again
Great to work with, responsive design. Hit all of our parameters. Would use again
How Victoria Knowles-Lacks started their book cover journey
MAKE IT HAPPEN
Victoria is a 10 x award winning entrepreneur who changed an industry. She runs a massively successful small business. She talks openly about how she has navigated grief and how she took good from it, and now leads a life she loves.
It's a 3 part self help / personal development book which is all about my story (part 1) and how I used to be so burnt out, to how I turned it around and it all started with changing my mindset.
Part 2 is all about actionable mindset strategies
Part 3 is all about my 'Seven Principles of Balance' to apply to business. To help burnt out entrepreneurs get their business back on track and to help them lead a life they love.
There's also an accompanying workbook to my book that people can download via my website. I've poured my heart and soul in to it, so it's really nice mix of me (and losing 3 people I adored in the space of 9 months) and how I just got real with everything. I show the reader how they can too.
Female entrepreneurs who have been in business for a few years. They spend a lot of time on instagram, so aesthetic is important to them. They want to be more positive and to change their lives. They live in the UK or America, they're probably around 30 years old.
Book cover type
I'm not actually sure whether to use Ingram Spark or Amazon yet - this is my first book and I haven't got that far yet...

What colors do you want to see in your design?
I want people to pick up this book and make them feel really inspired! Colour wise I think really bright and crisp. I don't have a colour palette as such. I love loud and proud and I'm after the kind of book cover that you'd see in a book store and be like "OMG". Haha I'm not actually sure how that translates though.. I'm guessing colour - I guess it's quite clear - picture wise I'm happy for a photo or a classy looking graphic. I love pineapples, so maybe one could be incorporated if you're stuck for something!
Dimension wise, it'll just be a regular paperback size. I don't have any professional head shots of me, but I have some photos I can email over if you need them :-)
What to avoid
I don't really like cartoons or grungey colours. Not too much pink or fonts which are too squiggly.
