As a manager for over 20 years, I value professional and technical knowledge, creativity, and dedication. But, I believe the factors that will always win the day are bringing your heart to what you do with a good dose of clear thinking and common sense. I don’t think you can train someone to be, or think, that way, and that is what you get with Tamian – a stellar package.

Wow! Great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"I was very impressed with Tamian Wood's cover art for my upcoming novel, ...she completely understood the concept... and rendered it in every detail. ...a reliable, capable and knowledgeable cover artist."
"Just two more weeks and the book will be out! I've been finishing up the cover details with the designer Tamian Wood. She has been a dream to work with: she gets back to me faster than I ever imagined a designer would, and I've loved her
ideas and all the design suggestions. I can't recommend her highly enough to any other indie publishers out there!"
[Tamian] has designed three of my novel covers. The Inheritance, Dark Legend, and Rebel Nation. Each one is original and compelling. My favorite is the artwork she created for my alternate-history thriller Rebel Nation. Her work captures the spirit of the story inside. She is a talented and amazing professional.

"I found Tamian easy to work with and eager to please. All four of my covers came out exactly as I envisioned. She managed to capture the story and spirit of each one. I love them! Highly recommended. She is a professional in every aspect of the word!"

"I have been looking at the cover over and over. In some weird way, it looks familiar to me. It feels like it's exactly the cover that was meant for the book from the very start, before I even wrote it. I can't thank you enough, ... Working with you has been a real pleasure, and I'm grateful I stumbled upon your site."

I chose Tamian to handle the cover design and layout of my latest book and, a few years later, I am honestly still getting feedback from both readers of it and other authors in my sector how well thought-out and executed both were. ... Tamian brought not only a very experienced design ethic to my project but a clarity and professionalism that, quite frankly, i require from anyone I hire but rarely find in those I do. Without those factors, my project would have gotten very expensive very quickly. Cannot recommend her highly enough.

"For the record, your response and turn-around times are light years better than XXX. I used this lay-out vendor as a favor to... a friend... His slow response and turn-around times made me realize how much more efficient it is working with you. XXXX did a fine job, but he lacked the communication and response skills you have. Just wanted you to know."

Return to Tobacco Road
The eye-catching cover for Madison's Song cleverly combines disparate elements of suspense, fantasy, character, and romance to create a lovely, haunting effect. This cover really is worth a thousand words!
"I am so very excited about your samples. You’ve really grasped the idea and completely took off with it. Thank you so much!"

“Tamian's cover work is beautiful, and I am proud to have it on my novel, The Luckless Prince. I feel she is an asset to any author or publisher looking for an outstanding cover artist.
"A half a dozen people have seen this book so far, and to a person, the first comment they have is 'Who designed it?' and 'What a wonderful touch!'... They say that it looks gorgeous and that it's easily the best designed book I've ever had. Congrats and well done!"

As an author and publisher of children’s books, I am very happy to recommend Tamian Wood as a designer. ... She took five (5) dull and unappealing covers and rejuvenated them into something very attractive and colorful. I have been delighted with her originality and obvious talent. She injects the qualities of whimsy and humor into her work – very nice considerations when doing work that would appeal to children. She was very professional in her approach and dedicated in meeting deadlines. She gets clever, original ideas that have proved to be very effective.

Ms. Tamian Wood is a true professional! She has an intense passion for her art and it shows in her work. She is always a pleasure to work with, and I look forward to continuing our working relationship in the future! I highly recommend her to everyone I know!

My company creates retail consumer products. In my search for a professional designer, I came across Tamian’s website. I was so impressed with her creativity that I contacted her immediately to design my first retail product box. She wowed me from day one with creativity, professionalism, and quality of her work. Tamian continues to produce amazing designs for my products. I wouldn’t use anyone else.

“Tamian takes great pride and ownership in every project I have sent her way. Her creativity and expertise shine through...”
Tamian Wood worked on three issues of Miambiance, the Kendall Campus literature and arts magazine at Miami Dade College. Those three issues won more design awards than any other in the magazine's fifteen-year history. She is both professional and creative, a combination not easily found in the same person.

“I consider Tamian to be one of the top professionals in her field. Over the past ten years, I have entrusted her with the development/design of some very important pieces- important to our clients, as well as to the success of our company. What has always stood out about Tamian is her commitment to our needs, no matter how busy she may be. At crucial times, she's there to provide whatever assistance may be necessary, as if we are her only client (which obviously we are not). I appreciate Tamian's demeanor, her sense of responsibility, can-do attitude, patience, understanding, and of course her outstanding talents. She is one who I would recommend to anyone that is seeking top talent at a fair price. There aren't a lot of Tamian's out there. that I can say for certain, after 22 years in the advertising business....”
