Alek is easy to work with and was responsive to all messages. During my contest, he also made adjustments to the design. His design stood out for its sophistication and artistry, as well as its visual message about what my book is actually about. After his design was chosen he continued to be responsive. Thanks, Alek!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
