My background at Random House, Simon and Schuster, and Harper Collins gives me the experience and understanding of what's needed to package a book so that it gets the attention of its intended audience. The experience of working with some of the most talented editorial, marketing, and publicity professionals in the world of publishing, gets passed on to my clients as I work towards creating a stunning book cover design that will stand out in a crowded marketplace.
As the landscape of book publishing rapidly changes, I continue to grow. Responding to the growing need of professionals to build their businesses and brands, publishing a book is crucial for expanding and reaching audiences.
I love helping a wide variety of clients create and grow platforms, businesses, or simply fulfill their dream of getting their story out into the world.
"Laura Duffy is by far one of the most knowledgeable, professional, and responsive graphic designers I have ever worked with, and I am so glad I hired her to design both my company logo and the cover for my latest book."
"After hiring and firing FOUR designers to create a cover for my first book, I hired Laura Duffy and finally got what I needed! Laura delivered with no delays, no excuses, no drama - just brilliant design. She's a mature, seasoned professional who knows how to work with clients creating a good experience in the design process. I worked in the television business for many years with CBS, MTV and HBO. As a result, working with the best creatives, I got spoiled. It can be challenging finding good talent in the freelance world. Don't waste anymore time! Call Laura, get her working for you, and be ready to be very happy with the results."
"I feel so incredibly lucky to have met Laura - and to have her experience and her creative eye at work on my book cover. I was first interested in working with Laura due to her deep bench of experience with big publishers, and I was not disappointed. When I saw the comps she created, I really felt like Laura got what I was going for - and I absolutely fell in love with one of her designs. She's a real pro and an excellent communicator with a wonderful creative spirit - a rare combination to find, in my experience. I highly, highly recommend her work and I won't hesitate to reach out again for help with my next book cover. Thank you so much, Laura!"
