99 was completely committed to making my cover work to my satisfaction. I put three designers/8 designs out in a poll to over 200 people and his design was rated the highest. Then he worked even after he won to make some major changes for an even better design. He really made my cover "sing"! He's creative, extremely responsive, and just good to work with. I highly recommend him.
Great work and solid communication!

Superb service! Rapid workrate, fantastic eye for detail and most of all a stress free professional. A designer that cares about his work and the final product. You're in the safest hands possible!

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a book cover designed for a book titled "How To Bang" with the subtitle " Explosive Punching For Combat Athletes". The two authors are Craig Bongelli (CSCC - Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach) and Brandon "Six Gun" Gibson, striking coach at the top MMA gym in the world JacksonWink MMA. Brandon has worked with some of the top names in MMA including: Jon Jones, Carlos Condit, Andrei Arlovski, Holly Holm, Alistair Overeem and John Dodson.
I'd really like Brandon's association with JacksonWink MMA and the fighters listed above to be highlighted with the cover as that's a major selling point. The cover also needs to be a little "hard-core" this book is going to be sold primarily to men between 20 and 35 who want to knock people out! I've attached a picture that I would like to be included on the cover, it's Brandon Gibson with athlete and UFC fighter Carlos Condit
