Jennie Rawlings is a treasure. Thorough, punctual and a natural collaborator, Jennie found the heart of my narrative and created a cover of such high quality that I wanted to yell about it in public. She elevated my work, pure and simple. I hope to work with her again and again and again.

I’d love to tell everyone that after prolonged collaboration and many artistic exchanges we finally triumphed and produced the cover for Best Wishes Sister B – it’s a quirky book, after all, and a bit of a challenge, but actually Jennie just got it so totally right from a standing start that it was cover love at first sight. Bingo! She’s brilliant!

Fran Smith (author of Best Wishes, Sister B)

 

Jennie has real creative genius with her designs, producing innovative and highly creative solutions.

What Jennie does is not just Art it’s Alchemy. There is true magic in her designs, and all her covers have a magnetic, touch-me, read-me quality which few can resist. In my case she didn’t just draw me a good cover, she captured the very essence and spirit of the story in a way that astounded me. Jennie is also wonderful to work with. She offered me a range of design options, all brilliant, but the extraordinary Puma design was a clear winner from the outset. I’m proud to have published a novel which is not just (I hope) a good read, but which is also a beautiful object to cherish.

I was quite overcome when I saw the fabulous covers Jennie had designed for me. She captured the very essence of my stories and created book jackets that were better than anything I could have imagined in my wildest dreams. The first sight of them made me quite teary. Not only is she incredibly talented, but she is an absolute delight to work with – and endlessly patient. Really, couldn’t be better!

I had no idea when I asked Jennie to design the cover for my first novel for 11-14 year olds how completely blown away I would be with her ideas and artwork.   She understood and incorporated all the drama of the story and created a picture that encompassed the themes and ideas perfectly.  Everyone who has seen it has been as thrilled and admiring as I have.   Needless to say I have asked her to design the cover of my second book, ‘Wormhole’.   She is a joy to work with – efficient, quick to respond and nothing is too much trouble.   I feel privileged to be able to showcase such creative talent.

Serifim took all the stress out of creating the perfect book cover for me and in next to no time. It was magical to see how Jennie took a few vague ideas and produced a stunning cover – as if she could read my imagination. It matched the brief 100%.

Jennie captured the spirit from the brief and sample chapters I sent her perfectly. She worked some kind of magic and created a cover which grabs you by the eyeballs and doesn’t let them ping back into their sockets until it has had your full attention. And I cannot express highly enough how attentive she was throughout the entire process.

Out of 10, she gets at least 12!

Working with Jennie was a pleasure. From start to finish the whole process was an enjoyable journey. Whatever your novel, a good cover – professionally designed – makes a massive contribution to the success of your story. Don’t overlook it. Jennie designed the cover for my book The Worry (a precocious little story of comic intrigue – some might say). It made a difference. If you believe in your work, let Jennie make a difference for you. Of course to begin with I designed my own cover. Pretty good I thought, until told otherwise. I was then introduced to Jennie. Highly regarded in her field for flair in design, attention to detail, and a lot of other things, her brief was to design me a book cover (and for a book like mine that has a lot of traffic cones in it that was no easy task). She read it (bless her), presented her ideas (agreeably), produced a cover within budget (very reasonably I thought) and to an agreed timescale (about 2 weeks). I was delighted with the result. If you are trying to bring a book to market, perhaps you should have a word with Jennie too.

Jennie's bold inspirational designs have drawn gasps of admiration from friends and readers. She doesn't just read and sketch a design; she captures the heart and soul of a book, finding themes that even the author hadn't dreamt of.  The detail is exquisite. In fact the more you look at these covers the more you find in them.  I've worked with Jennie on two projects now and she has given me books to be proud of.  I could never work with anyone else.  Truly, they are works of art.

Jennie Rawlings designed the book jacket for my first novel ‘A Bird in the House.’ Her strong image perfectly captures the essence of the book. I am very happy with the design and many people have commented on how striking it is.

I love Jennie’s cover design for my book MINTY. As well as being beautiful it perfectly encapsulates the story. It’s as if she had stepped inside my subconscious and created the book cover I’d have designed for myself – if only I had the talent! It’s genius! Thank you, Jennie.

– Christina Banach (author of Minty)

 

Jennie designed and produced an outstanding cover for my novel, Zero Alternative. Not only was she thoroughly professional and responsive, but she truly managed to capture my ideas and the spirit of the book, somehow making it look better than I could have ever imagined. A more than excellent job.

– Luca Pesaro (author of Zero Alternative)

 

With a background in theatre design, Jennie Rawlings is highly skilled at interpreting the drama and ‘feel’ of a novel and projecting those crucial elements into her cover art. She embraces all her projects with energy and enthusiasm and working with her on my book cover was a joy. Her beautiful artwork and creative typography are always so eye-catching and if you want your book to stand out in an ever growing crowd then this is essential.

– Stephanie Elmas (author of The Room Beyond)

 

Jennie has been an inspiration to work with. The cover art she produced for Cloud Riders is truly exceptional – a strong, bold, dynamic design, that catches the eye and doesn’t let go. And that’s exactly what you want your cover to do when it’s competing for people’s attention with countless other books on the shelves! Jennie has real creative flare for fantastic covers – and I say this as a former game industry art director myself. In short, I can’t recommend her services highly enough.

– Nick Cook (author of Cloud Riders)

It was a very lucky day, indeed, for me when I happened to come across Serifim while researching graphic designers. Jennie is an extraordinary and extremely gifted professional and individual. She has a unique insight in what makes a cover stand out and convey the essence of the novel. The jacket cover of my debut novel Because of You is a piece of art. Everyone who sees it think it's stunning and I couldn't agree more. The colours and attention to detail exceed my wildest expectations and imagination. Jennie is an absolute dream to work with and I urge everyone who genuinely want to succeed in the publishing industry to enlist Jennie's service. I guarantee it will make a huge impactwith an eventual readership in a crowded market.

Jennie's coversare a piece of art that combined with a huge marketing potential are in a league of their own. Jennie is the only graphic designer I trust to create and develop a concept that will linger in the reader's mind and heart long after they've turned the last page. Whenever I look at the cover, I am tempted to read the novel despite the fact I am the author and know it inside out. I am so very grateful that Jennie is my graphic designer and can't wait for her to create yet another magic image for my up and coming novel We Never Said Goodbye.
