Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Martin Beckett | Share link:

I was delighted to be included in the recent exhibition by Hire an Illustrator and The Little Chimp Society celebrating the works of Jules Verne.

“Martin designed, illustrated and formatted five books covers for me (front and full covers). He also completed a logo redesign. His ideas were imaginative and practical, resulting in a cohesive set of covers that I couldn’t have envisaged myself. Throughout the process, he was extremely responsive and helpful, and always willing to make tweaks to the designs as requested. I’ll definitely be using Martin’s services again in the future."
