Katie has redesigned the cover of my first book and I’m so delighted with the result. She understood exactly what I was looking for and hit the ground running with her concepts which showcased the whole vibe of the book perfectly. I chose the concept I was most happy with and she soon had a few tweaks implemented and after a couple of minor changes we were in business! I’ve had fabulous feedback so I know I’ve made the right choice. Katie was an absolute dream to work with; she was very clear in terms of what could/would be delivered and as we agreed at the beginning, also provided social media images. I’ll absolutely be using Katie Birks Branding and Design again.

Katie listened carefully to what I wanted, and delivered a really beautiful final design. She uses a really efficient way to showcase the proofs and get feedback on each stage, and Katie is really approachable.

We asked Katie Birks Branding and Design to create a book cover for us... Katie was friendly and professional, quick to respond to queries, and the sample covers she sent us were absolutely brilliant. The result of using Katie Birks Branding and Design was a beautiful cover... and for very reasonable price.

Katie has great taste in website design. She created something that looks beautiful and makes me smile every time I open it. I hired Katie because... she struck me as the most efficient. And that turned out to be true. Katie is super-efficient and very hard-working. She always kept on top of things. I never had to chase after her to ask her what was going on. Instead, she gave me deadlines! She managed to do this without being pushy or bossy. Instead, she was a delight to work with. I highly recommend Katie Birks!

I had seen Katie's work which is why I approached her in the first instance. I thought I knew what I was getting but I was wrong! Working with her has been an absolute dream (and this from a technical dinosaur!) She has been patient, turned my basic thoughts into something which I just love and coped with training myself and my husband (did I mention how patient she was?) I have now got a brilliant website, support in the early days and would be more than happy to recommend Katie to anyone wishing to create a high quality site.

I would recommend KBBD for four reasons:
*Excellent, responsive customer service.
*Innovative design that suited my business needs and didn't go further than I needed it to. I now have a website that should last for a long time.
*Good after sales service.
*Good value for money.
I could also add that KBBD were very patient with me... 😀

During 2022, I had the distinct pleasure of working with Katie Birks to redesign both my blog and author website. The process went from setting a vision for my brand to implementing both new designs. The work proceeded seamlessly from beginning to end. Not only am I delighted with the results in terms of design and effectiveness, but it is clear that my readers are too! I highly recommend Katie Birks Branding and Design!

I want to thank Katie for all her efforts and good ideas that helped bring the cover design of 'Orphan of the State' to fruition... she made the whole process simple and enjoyable. I'd recommend her to any aspiring authors looking for a professional cover for their book. Katie even got the brief completed ahead of schedule!
