Elizabeth was asked to provide multiple graphics. She did so in a timely fashion. She also provided quick revisions with just what I asked for. I will definitely use her again!
Nelly is wonderful to work with and is very knowledgeable. She gave great feedback and provide links to information that I didn't think about in creating a book cover. I will definitely work with her again!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
This is a book about health and wellness for the entire family, including pets. The book is an overview of WHY changes should be made to diet, exercise, and personal/household products followed by an Action Plan explaining how to achieve those changes. Readers will feel empowered and armed with the information they need to create health for the entire family. Please look at the attachments I have provided for direction ideas, especially the images of families.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I would like a cover design that combines nature images with modern graphics OR a "farmer's market" sketched picture feel. One of those two directions--modern, bright food graphics OR a more old-fashioned, market-style nature/food sketch image. The design should have a slightly feminine flair without being too girly. The title and subtitle should be LARGE and very easy to read and the overall feel should be clean and not cluttered. I like nature images as the bulk of the book is about healthy food and botanical medicines. Designers should feel free to be creative as I am open to a variety of images as long as the style is family-friendly and professional.
I would like to stick with EITHER a "sketched" OR a "modern" look--drawings/graphics over stock photos if at all possible. Above all, I'm looking for originality--I don't want to be able to find my cover imagery all over the internet.
