Client Testimonials

I've worked with some fantastic clients over the years and it's always wonderful to hear that they've enjoyed working with me too...


I have worked with many cover designers over the years and none of them matched Samantha in the thoughtfulness behind the designs they produced.

The Making of Us


I couldn't be more overwhelmed and happy with the result. Sam made the process straightforward, and explained it all very simply for me. She is also extremely swift in coming back communication wise - Very happy and will be recommending her services to everyone.

I've had the absolute pleasure of working with Samantha on several projects and every time, she has completely nailed it. I'd recommend Samantha to anyone for graphic design and illustration, and I look forward to working together again soon.
