Ivan is a great artist, I couldn’t be happier with his work!
His design was actually the first I received regarding my cover contest and I knew the instance I saw it that it’s going to win (which made me feel kind of awkward since many other people put so much work into my project). It was clear to me that he read my briefing very carefully and put a lot of thought into how he could convey the atmosphere I was aiming at. The result for me was mind blowing… I’m looking forward to work with him again.
Excellent work, very easy to work with. Extremely pleased with this designer.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our organization advises people on how to set up their own retirement programs. We eschew, deplore, and actively combat the common "salesman-y" emphasis so rampant in the financial services industry (some have called us a counter-culture firm in this regard) with a firm pro-consumer commitment. We are the financial firm for the 99%!
Our product is a nonfiction book entitled "How to NOT Get Ripped Off When Buying an Annuity". Yes, very wordy but very necessary (and attention-grabbing, we think).
Our customers are people who have retirement on their minds: usually age 50+, and usually feeling a little lost and uncertain about how to proceed with this most important event in their life. Meaning: how to make sure they have enough money to retire.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Need a book cover designed (both back and front). I am a total git in designing so creativity in a designer will be necessary. Expect that title will trump all on the cover. Will attach a file of an idea I had using 3 different fonts for the title. No idea what else to do with it.
