There's a new Pre-Mades Shop for all of your Book Cover Needs NOW AVAILABLE!
Using code (and Photoshop) as my paintbrush since 1999.
Your book cover is one of the most important aspects of marketing your book. However much time you spend on getting people to your book sales page, they won’t download a sample or buy the book if the cover isn’t enticing.
From Logo Design to full Brand Identity, I’ve done it all. Designing just your logo or all of the web and print needs (business cards, Social Media icons) is what I’m great at, and would love to help your business off the ground.
While I have extensive WordPress experience, I am comfortable developing in most of the major PHP-based Content Management Systems (Drupal, Joomla) along with Old-School standard HTML/CSS.
My greatest pride is making your online presence really yours, from logo design to full ownership of your site.
What clients say
Amber was awesome to work with! She is both incredibly patient and incredibly creative, both necessities when working with me! Would recommend to everyone I know.
After my first meeting with Amber, I breathed a big sigh of relief. I knew that I had found just what I was looking for: someone who understood marketing and web design better than me. Working with Amber, I was able to let her focus on the design and branding aspects of my project so that I could focus on what mattered most to me – in my case, writing. Amber took my big, messy ideas and condensed them down into a set of simple and evocative images. When we started this process, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted. Now, I can’t imagine any other logo but the one Amber designed. She is a consummate professional who never balked when I asked her to make changes. The turn-around time was quick without sacrificing quality. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
I couldn’t possibly be more thrilled with my new website! Amber’s expertise and professionalism helped bring my vision to life. She was prompt with communication and handling my requests. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
Amber has a rare ability to interpret a client’s vision and guide it into reality. She’s professional without being distant, and her technical skills are top notch. She’s personable and supportive while mentoring, and always available for questions. Amber has created a beautiful and functional site for us and we couldn’t be happier!
Great with deadlines and very efficient.
I’m an entertainer with a heavy focus on livestreaming different kinds of content, particularly on the Twitch platform. I needed a unified look and branding for my channel art that emphasized that while I do a lot of different things–live music, gaming, even knitting and crafts–it’s all tied together by *me* and my personality. Speaking in Vector did several full-screen static boards for me to use during my streams, as well as header art for my info sections. The full screen boards in particular help give my broadcasts a unified look–sort of like having opening and ending credits. I know Amber both professionally and personally, and she was a breeze to work with. I feel like she really took time to understand my aesthetic and then interpret that into something that is going to really make a visual impact that reflects me. I would absolutely work with Speaking in Vector in the future and recommend them to others.
Amber has shown a commitment to help our site reflect the image and quality we desire. She worked to help us make a great first impression and a lasting impression through our website.
Great work and quick turnaround when I was under a deadline!
Speaking in Vector helps Volo Press Books authors get high-quality, modern book cover designs for their work. Visual marketing is critical in any sales realm, and literature is no different. A book’s cover is the author’s first impression on a reader and has an enormous impact on buying decisions. Amber’s marketing savvy is on display with every book cover she creates. Amber’s help on a recent children’s book project was invaluable and the client was thrilled with her new book cover! Working with Speaking in Vector was fast and simple, with the same high level of professionalism we’ve come to expect from an expert like Amber. Amber was communicative, timely, and accurate.
