Aiming to smash best-seller status?
You need a unique, conceptual cover design that will turn heads and win readers’ hearts.

Your book is amazing. Your unique story crying out to be adored by the masses.
It’s essential to stand out in a sea of generic cover design.

With so much competition out there, it’s tricky, but don’t panic! Help is at hand.

There is a way to cut-through this sea of ‘same, same but (not very) different’ and become a
one-click success well on your way to that best-seller accolade.

That’s where I come in.

By creating meaningful design that truly captures the essence of your story, I turn your written vision into a visual reality that flies off the (virtual) shelves and into readers‘ hands.

The deeper we dig to get that perfect visual idea, the more impact your cover will have.

It’s great seeing an author’s new novel climb the best-seller chart. Knowing I have played my part in it is very exciting.


“My words wrapped up in incredible cover art has made all the difference.”

“Working with BookSmith Design was a fun, exciting, collaborative process, which is this writer’s dream. Claire listens to my input on the cover design so that it reflects the theme and tone of the book. And, without fail she over-delivers with designs that are beyond my wildest dreams.

Readers have left a myriad of reviews that they initially chose one of books based on its cover. There’s no other designer I’d use for any of my books but Claire Smith of BookSmith.”
