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 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!
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.
I was very happy with your service and really appreciate you answering all my questions to help me understand my project better. You did an excellent job and I will be looking to you in future projects.
Amber was very helpful, very responsive and completed my job quickly. Also always there for questions as well. I will work with her again.
We really appreciated the care with which the site was developed and the training was provided. Thank you so much!
We are thrilled with our site! Amber helped us make our template look very professional. Amber is a problem solver and EXTREMELY responsive. When challenges arose, she was proactive and got them resolved quickly. She went above and beyond our original scope of work. Our site turned out even better than we imagined, and the process was easy. We can’t wait to work with her again. I highly recommend Speaking In Vector!
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 is very talented and wonderful to work with. She is collaborative in all phases of the design process and truly listens to the client. She works tirelessly to produce a unique design and is responsive when it comes to tweaking details to get it right. I would highly recommend Amber for her creativity and her ability to produce a quality website.
I was very happy with the service provided — Amber went beyond the norm and helped me get the whole thing set up.
Amber is a wonderful webmaster who always strives for usable web sites with “clean” code. With such a complex site as NBA.com, her expertise has been invaluable to the team. She has demonstrated leadership by guiding others through web design best practices. She works well with her teammates and other Turner teams to ensure project success and planning for future direction. I would definitely recommend her as a great asset to any team.
