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
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.
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.
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.
Great work and quick turnaround when I was under a deadline!
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.
Amber created a new website for us. She delivered what we asked for and what we wanted faster than expected. She was the easiest person we have ever worked with and she was able to produce what we wanted in our website. The communication was easy and she responded to us quickly. She was also able to problem solve with us regarding some website issues we have had in the past. Her work was creative, timely and she was able to take all of our ideas and create a new, beautiful website for us. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her and the entire experience was extremely pleasant. We would recommend her highly to anyone looking to website creation and idea implementation. Amber also was able to take our vision and create our website.
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.
Amber has been a very helpful resource for us as we have had many custom code projects come up with fast timelines. She is very responsive and knowledgeable, and very easy to work with! She has helped us through some complex projects and is able to simplify it all into manageable tasks that get done quickly.
