I would just like to share: particularly with other small presses – a wonderful recent find.. Algimantas Murza:
Algimantas Murza graduated college in 2003 with a diploma in editorial design; working first in a small medical publishing house then, after 4 years, for the oldest and one of the biggest Lithuanian newspapers “Lietuvos zinios”. He moved to the UK in 2013.
Email him for publishing work suggestions on: firstname.lastname@example.org
I asked him to design the cover for DIVERSIFLY – having realised that the wonderful image I had chosen and was committed to use, by ATM streetart was actually extraordinarily difficult to incorporate into a book cover!
He came back very quickly with 5 possible covers – all very different from each other – each completely useable – it was wonderful to be given such a choice
He then listened (on email) to my suggested tweaks and bent over backwards to find the exact final cover which is here to the left of the text – at the final stage I felt such trust in his eye that I said these are only my thoughts.. you are the designer – he gave me 4 options, and he gave me his opinion on which he thought was the best – which is the one I chose.
Highly recommended!! Nadia x
