Creating visual harmony for your business.

THE ULTIMATE SELF-PUBLISHING CHECKLIST gives you a birds-eye-view of the self-publishing process, breaking it down into necessary steps to get you from first idea to printed book, all in the form of an easy-to-understand checklist.


Brand Loyalty

It’s what small businesses chase after. What is it that sets you apart.

I specialize in custom logos and brands that help bring impressionable consistency to your platform as a writer. Your brand is as unique as you are, which is why Finicky Designs gets artistically particular about your visuals. From watercolor logos to hand rendered type, each of my logos has personal creative touch. 

Book design by Finicky Designs

Your book design is one of the most important extensions of your author brand as you run beside the publishing "big dogs" and attempt to stand out in your genre. With both in-house and freelance experience in publishing, I know what it takes to make your book stand out (and sell more copies).

Let’s get real here for a second…

You need designs that WORK for you. Here’s a list of what good design should do for you and your business:

  • Instantly communicate to your clients who you are and why you care about them

  • Attract your ideal customers with their ideal budgets

  • Hit home a high degree of credibility so that no one is left wondering whether or not they should give you business

  • Build brand loyalty through the professional experience you give your clients consistently

The book cover that Melody designed for me is literally the most beautiful book cover I have ever seen. Her process was phenomenal - I felt so heard and understood. All of the design options she presented were gorgeous and I was so torn. Melody was so thoughtful about every aspect of the design - not just the aesthetics, but the symbolism and connection to concepts in my book and in my work as well.

Melody has also recently completed a logo and brand design. After feeling so connected and so heard by her during the book cover design process, how could I work with anyone else? She came through again, tying in threads of symbolism from the book cover and perfectly capturing the essence of my personality and the work I do in the world.
