"Working with Ken Dawson at Creative Covers has been nothing short of fantastic. As a first time indie author, the process of bringing my book to life was daunting, and at times very stressful. Ken was brilliant from the beginning, providing support and encouragement along the entire process. Nothing was too much trouble, and I really felt he was on my side. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Ken; his artistic and technical skill are first rate and he’s so easy to work it.

Five stars and 11 out of ten!"

Heidi Mumford-Yeo - Author, Model, and International Film Actress

"I was introduced to Ken and boy am I glad!  His mission was to interpret my creative brief into a book cover.  With minimal fuss and max. instincts, Ken delivered over and above.  I’m thrilled with his output and the alternatives presented to me.  Ken also turned out to be a one stop shop and helped me launch my book onto Amazon which I honestly wouldn’t have had a hope of doing alone.  Ken is a name for your black book of contacts."

"As two recent clients of "Creative Covers," we would like to give a huge shout out to Ken Dawson for an outstanding design job on our book cover. After coming across his website from a Google search for, book covers design, we read Ken's, "about page" and immediately knew that Ken was the person we wanted for our coming out novel. Unleash The Leviathan - Hostiles Crossed The Redline will be released soon. We will owe much of its success to Ken's cover design.

We gave a brief idea of what we wanted and within 7 days, Ken gave us 4 samples to look at. We were so very surprised that Ken was able to capture exactly what we were looking for in his initial designs. Apart from one addition to the cover we chose, Ken delivered from start to finish with two weeks.

Ken, we give you 5 stars out of 5."
