"Luckily, I discovered my 'fairy godmother' in Carolyn Michel, who not only gave me some wonderful ideas when I was really unsure what would 'hit the spot', but also worked with my own idea for another book and came up with the most amazing designs that all met my 'vision' for the cover."

Delphine Richards, author of Blessed Are The Cracked and The Truth About Eggs

"Carolyn developed the cover for my collection of poetry, Marcism Today, from scratch - she was really communicative, flexible, dedicated and interested in the project from the outset. Carolyn's design is really great and she has brought my collection alive! Highly recommended and my thanks for a great job of work."

Marc Mordey, author of Marcism Today

"I was extremely impressed and pleased with how Design Elements designed my book cover. They intuitively knew how to interpret my expectations. Very professional, meticulous with attention to details, efficient to produce changes to design and layout quickly - highly recommended."

Denise Greenwood, author of Crushing Curiosity

"It was a complete pleasure working with Carolyn on the covers for my US editions. She was brilliantly creative, full of ideas, yet always happy to discuss my suggestions. Her technical ability and attention to detail was amazing. Right from the start she was determined to create the perfect cover. I think the fact that four of my books are currently in the Amazon US charts shows how well she succeeded."

Helen Carey, Author of the popular Lavender Road series

"I knew that I needed a strong image for my new acupuncture clinic but had no clear idea of what I wanted. Carolyn not only came up with some brilliant logos but spent time and effort refining my final choice so that it was exactly what I wanted. It represents my brand perfectly and I couldn't be happier. Thanks for a job very well done"

Liz Curtis, Animal Acupuncture

"I was so impressed with Carolyn's approach. The experience of doing the project online and by email worked better than I expected. The first designs were varied and I found I liked elements of several of them. I have no hesitation recommending Design Elements. I felt I was in safe hands all through the process.""

Juliet Fay, Copy writer

"Exactly what we wanted, an excellent logo Thank you very much."

Nia Hughes, VIP Limousines

"I can always rely on Carolyn to provide individual and well designed logos and branding for my clients. I can recommend her service knowing that she will always keep my clients happy."
