We have worked with Zoe on a number of projects and we couldn't be happier with the work she has created for us. Her attention to detail and willingness to do what ever is needed to bring the project to life is brilliant. Thank you Zoe
This was a wonderful experience! All the designers are so talented and polite. They totally understood my vision with just the minimal feedback I gave them. I would recommend this to anyone. I wish I could have picked more than one logo, but it isn't necessary for by business model.

Mila always creates original book covers that authors LOVE, and goes above and beyond to deliver the perfect design.
Her designs are unique and bring out the author's personality whilst adhering to the genre, and she shows endless patience as the design is progressed and finessed.
Working with Mila is an absolute pleasure.

I am a life coach and this book is intended to be sort of a "Life Coach In a Book." For anyone whose life isn't the way they'd like it to be. It will probably primarily appeal to women in their 40's & 50's. It's funny and intended to be a quick read. Has lots of illustrations.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I want a book cover for a book that will be 9 inches high by 6 inches wide. The title is "Life's Magic Carousel: How to Grab the Brass Ring Before the Music Stops!" I have no real picture in my head about the cover. I want something that intrigues people and makes them smile. A carousel is a merry go round. Often there is one brass ring and people on the horses can try to grab a ring as they come close to the holder (usually mounted on the top edge of the canopy). Riders could pull a ring - there were many rings, but only one brass. A rider who got a brass ring got to ride the carousel again for free. The carousel is meant to represent life and grabbing the brass ring means winning - or having a great life. It would be great if there were a bench on the merry-go-round (my title used to be Change Your Seat On Life's Carousel; that bench isn't going anywhere and I still refer to the bench as not getting you to where you want to go - you can't grab the brass ring while sitting on the bench). I don't have a preference for photo or drawing. I am not formal or traditional and I value creativity and artistic style. I want a design that will intrigue and draw a reader to my book.
I like certain colors better than others - I prefer blue, teal, purple, white, black, grey and yellow. (I would prefer you avoid red, brown, maroon, tan, orange, etc). My daughter had taken a photo of a merry go round (or carousel) for the book cover and I loved it. But I was told it wasn't professional, it looked like the cover for a mystery book and nobody would know it was a life coaching book. I have attached that photo with 2 draft book covers below. (I probably won't put the 3 quotes that are in the photos on the final book cover.) I have also included the introduction to my book so you get a sense of my writing. It is in the same style as the rest of the book. The book is about 100 pages (that includes maybe 30 pages of quotes and illustrations so it is very short).
