Adam Robinson does design and layout on a number of projects for me. He does interior and exterior design for two journals: Pamplemousse, which is a teaching journal at Johnson State College. The students (and I) love his innovative and playful design work, his sharp eye. He also does the interior and exterior of Green Mountains Review. In my view this is one of the best designed journals out there. Seriously. Adam's sense for the innovative but unobtrusive is totally unparalleled. He also has redesigned the GMR website, and this likewise looks amazing. He has such a good eye, and more importantly, an ability to explain design principles, to enact the same, and to make a site that is accessible, handsome, useful. Our traffic is up a ton. Adam has also done GMR Books. There just isn't a better book designer in the business. His work is smart, funny, eyecatching, and always spot on. Seriously, Adam is the best!
Once again Adam has been wonderfully kind, prompt, and fair in designing and developing our second book. He is attentive, efficient, and personable--simply AMAZING!
Working with Adam makes running Tyrant Books a lot easier. Responsive and knowledgeable, he's also really trustworthy. He knows what needs to be done to make our books a success—from design, to working with printers and distributors, to managing everything else that comes up in the complex publishing process.
Working with Adam on our book was such a smooth and pleasant process. He was responsive to our needs, generously offered invaluable recommendations, and created a wonderful design. Adam is knowledgeable and professional as well as amiable. In addition, he promptly replies to emails and actually answers the phone! We are definitely asking him to develop our next book.
I did a speaking gig yesterday and the organizer told me she went through my website that Adam made. I asked her what she thought. She LOVED IT because it was so “fresh” looking and it was "easy to navigate," to use her words!
As a complete novice to publishing, my first business marketing book, "A Reason To Chant" was merely a collection of words on a computer screen before Adam formed it into a book. He was there every step of the way to provide insights and suggestions that transformed and breathed life into my manuscript. His attention to detail and knowledge of interior book design, layout, and cover art is amazing. Adam is a gifted professional who continually displayed genuine passion about my project. Clearly, he was the only choice to work on my second marketing book, "A Reason To Chant - Jewelry Trade Edition." Adam went above and beyond my expectations on both projects. The two finished books are on par with anything the established big-name publishing houses produce. If you are considering publishing a book, Adam is definitely the one to contact.
Working with Adam was a fantastic experience! I didn't know what to expect working with an online editor, but Adam's prompt responses, creative ideas and extensive knowledge made the project so easy (for me!) from start to finish. Adam is so easy to work with and every suggestion he made was excellent. The final project is so beautiful and light years beyond what I could have accomplished without his expertise. He has my thanks for a terrific result and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for publishing help.
Adam, I wanted to take a moment to tell you, again, how much fun it is working with you on our second book project. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire process. Getting old manuscripts put into Word format, doing the historical research, finding images and old photographs, collaborating with my sister on a frequent basis, and working with you is all very rewarding and fun. You are so good at what you do, not only because of your design expertise and talent, but because of the way you relate and communicate with your clients. You have an unique ability to provide your own ideas while at the same time considering the clients' ideas and helping to make them come alive without judgment or criticism. I've loved working on this project and working with you. We will do it again. I recommend you without qualification. Greg
I work with a lot of people online. most people just do as much as they need to get paid. Adam goes above and beyond what he need to do. He was got the work done fast and it looked great when it was done. He even helped me out a month later with a little formatting issue even after he was done. I will hire him anytime I need help with my books.
