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
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.
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.
Working with Amber was great. She’s very responsive and came up with concepts that were right on the nose quickly. She answered all my many questions and fixed tweaks as they arose. Recommend for your small website project!
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.
Absolutely wonderful! Exactly what I wanted. Quick, listened, patient, and thorough. Was a dream to work with. Pricing was fair, and what should be expected for this quality of work.
Amber did a great job creating a clean, easy to navigate website design for me! I’m so excited to share it with others! Amber is super easy to work with. She is patient, flexible and did a great job of gently nudging me when I was slow to respond to her inquiries along the way. She is a great designer, developer and project manager!
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.
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!
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.
Honestly, I can’t think of a thing! You’re so responsive to e-mails, comments and questions. You were a true gem of a find!
