From the moment I met Laura I knew she and I would create the perfect design for my book. I felt connected to Laura and appreciated her calm but intensely interested way of listening to me. I told her everything I could about my story and then sent her my manuscript which she read from start to finish. From there, Laura produced several impressive images of what the cover design could be. The one I chose so accurately represented the heart of the story that it makes me emotional each time I look at my book. Laura understood my story in such depth that what appeared was me, and yet all women, in the same image. That was my hope, my greatest desire for the book cover.

Laura is talented and passionate about her work. She keeps her eye on the details to find the core meaning, then translates that into the visual. I am truly grateful to Laura and look forward to working with her again when my next book is ready.

Laura is a pure delight to work with! She picked up on my style so quickly and her attention to detail is only surpassed by her amazing talent. She was great at providing options she knew I would love! Her turn-around time with any edits or adjustments I wanted were quick and flawless.

Laura created the entire interior of my book from scratch including making one of my favorite graphics which I will use forever now thanks to her. Not only is she an incredible collaborator but she is sincere, generous, and splendidly creative with all the projects I was lucky enough to have her work on. Very grateful she was a part of my project!

I have worked with many designers throughout my years in business and was often disappointed until I found Laura. Not only is Laura a talented designer, but she also has vision. After I briefly explained what I was imagining, it seemed as if she stepped into my mind, understood it, and created something beyond what I was able to vocalize. In addition to her creative gifts and intuition, Laura is a true professional. She always hit deadlines and did it all with a contagious, cheery demeanor. I truly believe her design was a huge factor in why my book hit the bestseller's list. She is that powerful.

I had no idea what went into the design of a book’s interior pages, and had heard many self-published authors say they used software to do it themselves to save money. I had honestly expected I would do the same, but I ran out of time. I'm thankful for that turn of events because I don't think anyone could have captured the themes of the novel as well in the interior design as Laura did!

From the font to the section designs, I love the look and feel of the book – and I have had so many people comment on how impressed they are with the design as well. Her interior design definitely elevated the book to the high-quality publication that I was working to produce. I am so thankful for the time and effort she put into the project. Laura's process and communication style is very author-friendly, which might have made this aspect of my book production the smoothest and least stressful.

Laura has been an absolute pleasure to work with! It was so easy to collaborate with her! Laura’s agreeable, intuitive nature ensured that our views became part of all discussions while, at the same time, her experience and keen eye for detail made the final product the best that it could possibly be. Her ideas relating to the book’s cover and pages really made all the difference, ensuring that our book was one that we could be very proud of.

Another outstanding trait that Laura demonstrated was her ability to work under pressure. With printer deadlines looming and a book launch date on the near horizon, we were so impressed with Laura’s promptness, unflappability and, at the same time, attentiveness to detail, that she exhibited throughout the entire final editing process. We certainly hope that we will have the good fortune to work with Laura and Visualaura Studios again, many more times in the future!

Working with Laura was easy and straightforward. Right from the beginning, I felt like she cared about me and my project and connected with me on a level that transferred to the cover design of my book. She went over and above by carrying the theme of my book into the cover and interior design options, especially in the cover that I ended up choosing. She was always prompt and easy to deal with, and quickly responsive to questions and comments. We worked very well together and consistently met or beat the deadlines for our project together. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!

Working on my book cover with Laura was such a breeze. She is kind, patient and incredibly talented. Laura was able to bring the emotions in my story to life through her artistic use of colors. Creating a cover for my first book was a learning experience for me and with her creative mind and friendly attitude, Laura made this a fun project to work on. The result was better than I could have ever imagined.

I needed a graphic designer for maps and a book of bike routes. I’m so pleased to have found Laura – she has a good eye for design, is a creative problem solver, and works quickly. She’s keen to try anything new and is excited when there is a challenge. I highly recommend her and will hire her again!

Laura does top notch work, and does it efficiently. She was able to take our ideas and translate them into a professional and flexible set of documents, presentations, and promotional materials that have gained exposure across the country. We wholeheartedly recommend working with her.

Our recent project had Laura rebrand our Real Estate Magazine publishing company. Laura’s performance was exceptional and the end result was exactly what we wanted. Laura brings creativity to all our projects coupled with a high degree of business and marketing savvy when compared to other professional designers we have hired. Laura has always been a pleasure to work with and we are thankful to have found her!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Laura on two different projects. She went above and beyond throughout each project, always keeping us up to date on her progress. Laura was highly organized, reliable, made insightful recommendations and always made sure to ask questions, ensuring our finished products were exactly as we envisioned. I would not hesitate to recommend Laura to anyone looking for a graphic designer to help take their brand to the next level.

Laura brought strong creative concepts to the table, enriching all Ravenheart projects, from book production to web design. She displayed accountability regarding her commitments, is a clear communicator, and possesses a keen eye for detail. We enjoyed collaborating with Laura as she injected enthusiasm and passion into everything she delivered. She often generously incorporated her personal interests and experiences into her work, adding a deeper layer of design-genius to our book catalogue.

I was lucky to work with Laura when it was time to upgrade my visual branding. She took my website from DIY freelancer to professional writer and content strategist. The face of my business finally matched what I was doing! I loved that she was flexible and made recommendations that truly felt good for my business. I’d recommend her to anyone, especially if you haven’t worked with a designer before.
