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.
Absolutely happy with my logo design! I love it, thank you for the good communication also. When I need something I will come back to you guaranteed.
She was really helpful and did a good job
I loved the colors and the ability to fit all the requirements into the cover!

How nathan.p.shields started their book cover journey
The Secrets of Faith
Michelle Shields is an English teacher in Sycamore, Illinois. She has always had a passion for young adult literature and enjoys connecting with her students about books. She spends her free time taking walks with husband, Nate, and her kids, Calvin and Savannah, binge watching TV shows on Netflix, and re-reading her favorite Jane Austen novels.
Young Adult, Fiction
Everyone has a secret.
“You’re not as good as you think you are.”
Faith considers this. Never before would she have given Sebastian’s words a second thought, but the beginning of her junior year has her reevaluating her values. Good and bad, right and wrong...all of a sudden these concepts aren't as clear as they were when Faith’s Christian family was intact.
The depressing quality of her empty home compels Faith to accept an invitation, and that night she agrees to do a favor for a new friend. The favor is stealing Vicodin, and Faith discovers that by using both her ingenuity and her good girl reputation, she can acquire enough prescription pills to go into business and beat out Sebastian, her competition. It’s dangerous, but danger is more fun than she expected.
As Faith struggles to maintain the daytime status quo, her nightlife gets more interesting, and she begins to realize that she’s not the only one with a secret. It seems everyone is pretending to be someone they’re not.
14-18 year old girls
First of all, everything needs to be in gray scale.
The title would be centered with the words The Secrets of at the top, Faith centered right below it, and my name (Michelle Shields) at the bottom. I want it to be kind of scratchy but with sharper edges. And I’d like the “t” in “faith” to be in the shape of a cross, but still fit in with the other lettering.
Here is the description of the pill bottles from the book:
"I liked the idea of a symbol, but nothing too obvious. Perhaps a shamrock? I doodled mindlessly and settled on a gothic-type shamrock. Very edgy. A ‘do my drugs’ shamrock. I found a black fine point marker and drew the shamrock on each bottle."
I want the bottle laying on its side and pills falling out in black and white. The shamrock should look like a sketch (hand-drawn).
What to avoid
Anything that looks too bubbly or childish. This is an edgy book.
