This was my first experience of contracting a designer to produce something for me, and I couldn't be happier with the end results. It was difficult to get my ideas across initially, but I came to the conclusion it was in a large part due to the fact that I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted. However, once we got on the right path, the proposals very quickly began to take great shape. It was a very iterative process, and throughout Emily was focused, attentive, professional and always ready to implement my thoughts. I found the 99designs platform very simple and effective, and the whole process; initiation, payment, design and completion was very user friendly. I am so happy, that I shall shortly kick off the next project to design a new cover theme for my books.
