A few testimonials from satisfied clients

"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!"

“It’s not an exaggeration to say that discovering Ken Dawson at Creative Covers was a bit like finding the Holy Grail. That might sound overly dramatic but my search for a really good designer for my book covers had taken an age. No one else understood what I wanted, or of they did, they wanted to charge a lot more than I could afford. Ken has delivered two covers for me now. Each one has gained a lot of traction on social media which, in turn, has converted into sales. That’s what it’s all about, in the end. That old adage about never judging a book by its cover? So wrong!

That said, there is another angle where Ken turned out to be the right person. Collaboration is crucial in this artistic process. The artist needs to be willing to engage with the author to define and refine the finished product. Ken does that. It’s never too much trouble. Plus, because he knows what he’s doing, he’s able to apply “rules” that apply to book covers, such as the right dimensions, the most appropriate font. Things which most of us know nothing about.

It’s not surprising that Ken’s covers have won great acclaim. They’re striking, imaginative, highly professional. At the same time, his pricing is so cost effective. Finally, he is the nicest guy! That matters. It makes that collaborative process I mentioned so much easier. Trust me when I say, if you’re looking for a great artist for your book cover, look no further. Ken Dawson is it.”

“I have nothing but good things to say about my experience working with Creative Covers. I was pleased that Ken took notice of my original brief and tailored a package that fitted the bill superbly. Communication was easy by e-mail, and he was happy to make tweaks to the design at my suggestion at no extra cost, resulting in three excellent cover designs.”

"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."

"I was lucky enough to have Ken Dawson’s invaluable help with my first novel, ‘All The Luck’’. He was wonderful to work with. As well as his work ethic and talent he has a great way of patiently teasing out what you need on the cover of your precious work.

From the outset Ken seemed to get what was distinctive about my book and provided me with a range of different treatments. My beta readers were very impressed. As one, a fellow writer said,  “Props to your cover designer. All of them interesting and striking.” The final version is fantastic. I couldn’t be more pleased. As my editor put it, “I think it looks timeless, classy and also 'expensive!’”

As a huge bonus Ken also provided impeccable typesetting and much needed guidance around Amazon publishing procedures.

I found Ken to be a natural and complete collaborator. Writing can be a lonely endeavor but working with Ken was like being part of a very high performing team."

"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."

"Ken has been a pleasure to work with. I'm stunned at his flexibility and patience - when I was unsure and unable to make decisions, Ken helped advise and provided options. He went out of his way to ensure I was comfortable with the designs and no ask was too big or small. He has great energy and an excellent work ethic. I took far too long making decisions, but Ken never made me feel like I was wasting his time. Ken's work is excellent value for money, especially for a first time author. I'd highly recommend working with Ken and I'd defintely use him again!"

"I cannot recommend Ken's cover design services enough! Ken was so friendly and professional throughout our work together.  He immediately understood what I wanted for my book's cover design.  He was also amazingly quick at producing the first designs, which I would also like to add were perfect from the start! He provided me with 4 tests, and each one was brilliant, it was a hard choice to choose just one! If you need a cover design for your book, Ken is the man to go to.  When I come to writing my next book, Ken will definitely be my cover designer!"

"I came across Creative Covers when I was looking for someone to design a cover for my first, self-published book “To the Caribbean and Back”. This was all new to me so I needed someone who knew what they were doing and could help ensure that the cover fitted all the requirements for, hardback, paperback and ebook formats. Creative Covers did a great job for me. They came up with a range of ideas for me to consider and I couldn’t be happier with the final result. They also created some first class images for me to include in the book, based on my rough sketches – and all for a very competitive price. I can highly recommend them for service and creativity."

"As a debut novelist, I hit my fair share of setbacks, and the costs of a cover designer ranged so dramatically, I was worried about finding the right fit for my novel without having to spend a fortune and some designers said they couldn't achieve what I needed. I wasn't sure what to do, so I settled on a homemade cover that would 'do for now,' and spent more time looking for the right artist.


 Then I found Ken at Creative Covers and loved the designs I saw online.


Ken was a breeze to work with from the beginning, coming up with great ideas and helping me hone in on what I wanted to achieve with patience and enthusiasm; it was a fun and rewarding experience seeing the designs he came up with.


Ken discussed style, theme, colours, fonts and was happy to try a few ideas to see if they worked.


Then the cover came together like a piece of art. It far exceeded anything I could have imagined and looks professional and captivating. I really hope my book is judged by its cover!


I highly recommend Ken to anyone who wants a talented designer that pays attention to detail, a fun and easy working relationship, and a top-quality book cover that stands out on any shelf.


I've just received my first completed book cover and have already ordered my second.


Before you go anywhere else, give Ken a try, I promise you won't regret it!"

As a writer, it is very difficult to imagine how the outside cover of your book should ‘look’.  It is difficult to know where to start.  For a book cover design expert like Ken Dawson to accept the challenge with enthusiasm and vigour is honestly like mana from heaven.  In my new book ‘How to add adventure to your life.  The Seven Cs to success’ - all i had to do was to send the script to Ken and in no time at all he sent me several different exciting design options - each of which would have done the job.  After sending them around to a few people whose experience and creative talent I trusted, we gradually zeroed in on the final design.  Since making that choice, Ken was patient enough to handle a few tweaks and we are delighted with the results.  Ken’s pricing for the job was very fair, and I can honestly recommend him without reservations.  If you  - like me - are looking for a swift creative design with no fuss and endless enthusiasm and creativity Ken Dawson is your man.


Thanks again for a magnificent piece of work.
