Natalie has a knack for finding exactly the most important aspects of the story and translate that to the cover.
I honestly had no clear idea what I wanted, and somehow I always find it difficult to put my visual ideas into words, but Natalie seemed to be able to read my thoughts because the cover she made me is even better than what I had envisioned at first. When she showed me the cover, I nearly cried, because there was my story, on the cover. She nailed it. On top of that, she is a wonderful person to work with.
She really listens to you, and even seems to read between the lines. Working with her is absolutely magnificent.

"I couldn’t tell you how happy I am with Natalie’s work.
She brought forth a cover that truly expressed my story. I filled out her survey with details of how I saw my cover. The rest was her artistic freedom. She never did anything without asking how I felt about something.
Also, her knowledge of the entire business of cover making is unreal. If you want a cover that’ll attract more readers than you need to contact her. I plan on using her for my entire series.
You won’t be disappointed!!!"
"Just finished working with Natalie and the team at Original Book Cover Designs. I can’t say enough good things about the end product or the process.
What started off as a simple purchase for a pre-made cover turned into a partnership for all the covers in my new series. Natalie listened. I know nothing about design, but somehow she managed to create exactly what I wanted even though I didn’t know what I wanted.
I couldn’t be happier with her work."
"Thank you for the absolutely STUNNING job you did on my Book Cover for Winter of the Fallen! I couldn’t be more pleased with the final outcome!
The vision for my book is perfectly captured! I spent months interviewing designers until I found you! Your responsiveness and professionalism is second to none! I look forward to working with many future projects in the future!"

Natalie has now designed three of my book covers under my Byrd Nash name and each one exceeded expectations. She's blown my my mind with her level of detail and creativity, and how she can change a stock photo into something truly special.
First, let me explain that I have had covers done by others - both illustrators and another book design company - and in quality and price, Natalie exceeded them all.
While I had some concepts planned for all three books, and even some photos I wanted to use, she took all of these and made, not an ordinary birthday cake, but a wedding cake extravaganza. Each cover really did exceed what I thought could be done and in a way that still fitted my vision.
Being a journalist with some graphic design experience I am extremely picky about the quality of what I want. When I get an email from Natalie I don't have to worry that she didn't "get it" or doesn't know how to make proofs or supply final artwork needed for Amazon and Ingram Sparks print books.
Any changes I wanted in text or color she did without any issue and very promptly. She's also very reliable on replying and hit all the deadlines right on schedule.
The price of her packages is far to cheap (shhh don't tell her I said so). You are getting exceptional quality for a low end price. I'm not sure how she does that!
I'm planning my next 3 book covers will be with her. No reason to go elsewhere!
"Natalie is not only one of the most creative cover artists that I’ve had the pleasure of working with, but also one of the most conscientious. She will work tirelessly to achieve whatever vision you have in mind.
Her work is always professional and of the highest standards, all delivered with a friendly smile and a guarantee that if you are not satisfied, then she will do all she can to ensure that you are.
If you’re an author and lucky enough to work with Natalie as I have, you can always be sure you will get a high-quality product that meets the needs of the market, and all at a reasonable price."
"Natalie is awesome to work with. My cover exceeded expectations and even though I didn't really know what I wanted she somehow worked magic.
My book stands out from the others in my categories and I can't wait to work on book 2's cover with her!"
"As a first time indie author, creating a stunning book cover is a priority for me. I conducted research and followed book cover designers on social media. Natalie's work outshines them all! I contacted her and she immediately put me at ease. Her mantra is this should be a fun and creative process for both parties. She is right!
She sent an extensive 6 page questionnaire about my trilogy. She honed in on the tone and theme immediately, always answering my questions promptly and encouraged my feedback. I am completely blown away by her concept and absolutely love the cover! It's one of a kind!
I purchased the eBook, Print cover, and Social media package. I'm thrilled with the banners and love how it is all so cohesive.
Natalie is wonderful to work with and I encourage all to make her part of your team.
I can't wait to share her design when I have my cover reveal later this month along with website and social media going live.
Thank you Natalie!"

"I have worked with Natalie for the last three years on all my book covers and can honestly say, there is no one else in the business that I would rather work with. Her designs are innovative and high quality, and she listens to what the author has to say in terms of the story and how they want that to be translated into the cover of the book.
As consumers often judge a book by its cover, the artwork needs to accomplish two things: be visually stimulating and find a way to summarize the story within a single graphic.
Natalie does this on a level that bypasses other designers. As an independent author, I know that when I work with her, it is one more thing that I can check off my list."
"Not only are these designs awesome, but Natalie is a great person to deal with. Both are important qualities I want for my books, for years to come."
