About Cover Me Darling

CollageI graduated from Long Island University CW Post, and Briarcliffe College, in 2006, and proudly hold a Dual Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts, with a concentration in Graphic Design and Photography. I started out as an avid reader and blogger in book land, and while blogging, I realized cover design is where I should have been all along.

Before starting my own business, I spent ten years in both Photography and Graphic Design. My objective is to take your vision and turn it into a reality. Whether you know exactly what you want, or need some direction, I’m here.

Aside from covers, I am also able to help authors create a brand by designing logos, swag, and banners. Image is crucial in this world. I also offer custom photography and have an exclusive photo library featuring Cover Me Models. Photography is my main passion, and anyone who knows me will tell you I like the darker side of things. That aside, I also completely embrace the bright and pretty.

I am still a south shore Long Island girl at heart, although I’ve been a transplant to North Carolina since 2007. I live in a cozy little bubble with my husbutt, our amazing little man, and our 3 crazy furbaby-pups.

I’m here to help, authors and bloggers alike, succeed and get noticed. If you have any questions, I am available to help in any way possible.

Some of you may know me from my book blog, I’ll Be Reading. Others, well.. you don’t know me yet 🙂 
So, Hello! I am Marisa, nice to meet you!
I have 10 years of Graphic Design and Photography under my belt, and have decided to take the plunge into Cover Design. It is something I have been wanting to start up for an extremely long time, and decided to quit stalling over it, and just go for it. 
Photography has been a love of mine since I was young. I double majored in Photography and Graphic Design in college, and came out with a Bachelors in Fine Arts with a concentration in both fields. I have photographed everything from weddings, to newborns, to landscape, to models. I worked in the Graphic Design 9-5 world up until two years ago, when I decided to go out on my own and freelance my little heart out, and I’ve been loving it since. It may sound cliche, but I feel like I haven’t “worked” a day for the last two years. 
Art, is my passion.
I cannot think of a better way to combine my love of reading, photography skills, and artistic design eye, than book cover design.

I’ll mention here, that I will not sell the same cover twice. Once a pre-made is sold, it is taken down. This is to ensure that no two books will have the same cover. ALL pre-mades can be altered, so please don’t hesitate to ask. 
I look forward to hearing from you!
