Katarzyna is a very creative individual who really pays attention to her client and works quickly. She went above and beyond my requirements to create a very impactful design.
Andy was great to work with, very professional and responsive. I highly recommend him for any book design.
Uros is AWESOME. He's so easy to work with, he stays up late to push through on deadlines, he is very creative and has a great design eye. He's honest and charges reasonably and fairly. I have worked with him now on over 20 projects, and I keep giving him more work because he is AWESOME. Now I regret sharing that info because he may get more booked and less available for us! :)

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Mba Fabrications Inc. is a conceptual art 'persona'. The design is for a product called ARTPAK, which is a boxed set of five matching paintings.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The ARTPAK box is 52" by 52" x 8" deep. You have to design a wrap-around sleeve that is 52" high x 68" wide (ie a 52" x 52" square with two 8" x 52" side panels - see 'design sleeve' image). There is also a cellophane covered window opening to show a sample of the product underneath. The window can be any size or shape, but the bottom must be no lower than 16" from the top of the box. The look of the packaging is to be 1.Sophisticated, 2. Minimalist, though don't be afraid of subtle pattern 3. Mainly black and grey, perhaps with a bit of spot colour or gold/silver.
You are only designing the sleeve (full bleed). the top, bottom and back of the box are blank. Please include any meaningful additional graphics like barcodes and other symbols. This package is intended to look like a very convincing product even though it will only be sold to art collectors and museums. The text right now is for design purposes - I will finalize it once the design is completed. On the front there should be a schematic showing the dimensions of the 5 paintings. Feel free to alter the logo if you wish. PLEASE DO NOT FEEL LIKE YOUR DESIGN HAS TO LOOK LIKE MY 3D DRAFT AT ALL - IT IS FOR GENERAL GUIDANCE PURPOSES ONLY.
