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
Great with deadlines and very efficient.
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.
It was great. I was able to talk over what I needed and we discussed options. Amber kept me updated on progress and then it was done and worked just as I had needed. I highly recommend!
Awesome experience – Amber was so responsive at all times, available and patient – and created a fantastic product! I’ll not only recommend her to friends, but also continue to work with her myself!
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!
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.
Working with Amber was a delight. She was extremely prompt in responding to my questions and communications. She’s very kind and professional, and she accommodated any requests and preferences I had for my logo.
I don’t think puffery does Amber justice – she gets things done. Period. Extremely fluent front end developer and designer, up on all the industry trends and practices, she knows good web. It takes a special kind of backbone to lead web design for major sites like PGATour.com and NBA.com, and Amber’s got plenty to spare.
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.
