I owe a tremendous thank you to Donika Mishineva for all the effort, creativity, and time taken in designing the book covers for the novellas ‘The Language Barrier’ and ‘Annabelle’, the first two stories from ‘The Human Factor’ series. Donika is a graphic artist, and custom book cover designs are her speciality. Although it is said that you can’t judge a book by its cover, many do, and it is the first thing you see.

She has worked tirelessly with an author who doesn’t know what he’s doing to produce results that look brilliant and encompass the characters and storyline of each book.

Donika initially contacted me through LinkedIn and I thought, ‘Yep, good contact. Perhaps I should talk with her.’ I think it was over twelve months before I did, and now I regret the wasted time.

When I eventually made contact, I found her very easy to work with and we began tossing ideas back and forth across the globe. I do have some idea of the amount of research needed for Donkia to find and then work with the graphics to produce the book covers. I think she’s done a fantastic job.


She is not only talented and an ‘outside the square’ creative, she also has great communication skills and is willing to listen and discuss ideas. She can design covers for me for as long as I'm able to write material that at least halfway matches her cover designs. And I'll have to work hard to do that.

I couldn’t wish for more, for a first impression of my books.

I have gone round and round looking for someone who will listen to what I wanted as a cover for my books and I have found the perfect company.

 

Donika not only listened, but being a pro,

she gave her opinion on what is needed for a pro cover. I could not ask for faster service, more professional, and for such an easy communication over the airwaves. She will be my go to company for all my future book covers. I thank her so much.

Donika designed the cover of my novel, ‘Abandoned’ (2021).

After providing a few brief details on what I was after, Donika came back with a beautifully vibrant and captivating cover that captured the scenery and the events of the book perfectly. She possesses a talent in creating eye catching imagery and visuals, which culminate in an inspiring cover. I highly recommend Donika for any writers looking for a graphic designer for their book covers - or anyone requiring a designer for a project.

I highly recommend Donika Mishineva as your choice for your custom book cover needs. She produced a fantastic and affordable book cover for the third novel of my book series and I was so impressed and satisfied with her work that I want her to redesign the covers for my other titles. She worked tirelessly with me to produce the best cover that truly reflected the essence of my book. It has already received very positive feedback. As an author, it’s difficult to build a team of consultants who have your best interest at hand. But Donika demonstrated that type of commitment and dedication from the onset of our communication. She does a super job in helping you harness your concept and turn it into a marketable design. I was so pleased with her interaction and presenting me different options and advice, that I’ve asked her to be a permanent member of my publishing team for all my future design needs.

Donika is extremely talented, and very easy to work with. As a new writer, there were many parts of the book design process which Donika had to explain to me - and she did so expertly! I always knew what was happening, what the project status was, and ended up with a phenomenal book cover as a result.

 

I will use her services for all my future books, and would unreservedly recommend her to anyone needing a book cover design.

LinkedIn has proven invaluable when looking for a design and cover artist for my new science fiction series. I saw Donika Mishineva pop up and checked her website. I liked what I saw so I signed up for a cover. Working with her is wonderful. Professional, creative, she designed a stand-out cover that's an attention-grabber amid a crowded sea of the ordinary. She redesigned my corporate logo and business cards, too, and I am looking forward to working with her on the 2nd cover in my SF series (and on down the road, when things gel a bit more, I'll be delighted if she will do the design for a fantasy series that's bubbling up.)

I already knew we would make a good team from the initial contact. She is very professional, flexible, and provides quality with speed. I recommend her for her artistic talents and skills. It will be a valuable asset to have her in your team.

Donika is not only a talented artist, she excels in the area of customer service as well. She takes the time to understand the substance of the book’s story so she can design the cover to capture the interest of potential readers. Donika makes helpful suggestions and will make requested adjustments until the image is exactly what the customer has in mind. She pays attention to the smallest detail. I was amazed at how perfectly her first draft of the cover of my upcoming cozy suspense/adventure novel matched the description I gave her. She is responsive and stays in touch from start to finish and her prices are more than reasonable and fair. I have several more novels to be published. Donika will be the one to design the covers.

Her patience, ideas, and suggestions were spot on. Thanks again, Donika, for a superb job!

I have recently found and engaged Donika to design book covers for our authors at Aurora House. The covers she has created is amazing and will definitely enhance the author's books. I will be sending more of our covers to her for design. Donika's work is of very high quality and her direct contact with the author works well. I highly recommend Donika for book covers or illustrations, as her drawing is equal to her excellent designing of covers.

I spent more time trying to format and design

my novel than it did writing it. Lesson learned.

Leave it to the professionals.

Through Aurora House, I was introduced to Donika, who in no time at all, took my book to a completely new level. I am delighted with my book cover design.

 

Donika knew exactly what I wanted, and as you can see for yourselves, her design epitomises what my book is about and what I wanted to express on the cover.

I recommend Donika to anyone not wanting to traipse through the realms of formatting, and leave that time for the pleasures of writing.

Donika is open and friendly and easy to work with to get the cover you and book buyers want to see. She creates powerful book covers, not just commercial, mundane, boring ones you see and pass over every day. Her covers are the best you'll find anywhere. She also provided a space on her blog for my bio and a video of me talking about myself and how I work as a writer... Donika is my first choice for a great book cover designer and graphic artist. When you're looking for an artist to design a unique and powerful book cover that will help sell more books then contact Donika. You'll be happy you did. She takes the stress out of cover design, and replaces it with a beautiful artistic creation.

Donika is a breath of fresh air in graphic design. From start to finish she was the consummate professional. What I appreciated the most was her honesty. I told her what I wanted and she advised me against the original draft design I envisioned in my head, indicating that the format wouldn't look right and definitely wouldn't print correctly. She emailed me a mock set-up and I loved it. Within 5 days, she already completed my project and all I had to do was review and send minor changes. Donika's creativity, work ethic, eye for detail, and overall graphic design is top-notch. She was extremely easy to work with and she comes highly recommended as a graphic design professional for your next project.

Donika found me on LinkedIn to offer her services for book covers and other graphic design work as I am a novelist. I took a look at her website and LinkedIn recommendations and gave it a shot. She is extremely responsive and professional -- and very pleasant, which counts in my book. We decided to start with a custom cover for my FB author page featuring my trilogy. She asked the right questions and was very flexible to my desires. After I provided her the images she needed on a Weds, she promised the completed project by Monday. It was finished on Friday of the same week and she told me she'd change anything I didn't like. NO CHANGE needed -- it exceeded my expectations on visual appeal and creativity. Love it. I will work with her for book covers for the series I'm penning now. I'm so grateful to have found her and I look forward to many great projects in the future.

Donika’s graphics are outstanding and the turn-around-time is very swift. Whenever I give her a basic concept, she takes it to another level. Her designs always look better than I imagined.

I highly recommend Donika to anyone because of her extraordinary work. I myself in writing my first book was doubted about the cover - not having a clue what to do or how to organise anything, and she managed to solve all my issues with very few information. She created a beautiful book cover which is not only attractive to the eye but also follows the storyline of the book perfectly! In the future I'll contact her for any covering I should have.
