“Publishing can be a daunting process. I have published some books before and it seemed like the covers turned out fine but this last book, that was very important to me, had to be completely perfect. So I designed the cover myself. Am I a graphic designer? No. Although it looked beautiful on my computer screen, when the proof arrived blurry and you could barely read title, I contacted Christina immediately based on a referral. I had no idea if she could help me in the quick amount of time that I needed to turn around. She was extremely helpful. I gave her some ideas of designs that I liked (my original design I had created myself was no longer available). Christine found an even more incredible design that I love and adore I can’t believe she took my vision and made it possible. She not only returned it to me quickly and at an amazing in price but when my book launched on New Year’s day it made number one best seller. Take a look at Christine’s work, it is perfection. Many thanks and much gratitude to her artistry.”
“I have owned Storm Media for nearly 13 years and been in advertising and media for over 20, and working with Christine was one of the best experiences I’ve had in a long time.
Christine, at Clever Crow Consulting and Design was creative, intuitive and task ready. She created my digital press kit and beautiful One Tough Muther site, exactly how I envisioned it and delivered the product with changes, on time or before schedule. Christine listens to what you want, dissects it and builds you the vision you have in your brain. I highly recommend Clever Crow and Christine for creative, design, reliable, over-the-top-service to anyone who asks how I got One Tough Muther’s site finished so quickly.”
“I’m forever grateful for Christine popping into my life. Owning a Public Relations firm in the New York area, I need quick turn around and beyond amazing design work. I am a tough person to impress but Christine’s creations always wow me. I literally call her screaming with how much I love what she has done. Christine is the only graphic designer I use because she “gets me”. She can understand my gibber jab and make my ideas come to life. She is also highly skilled in understanding SEO, which she incorporates when designing websites and has the eye of an editor – this is such a breath of fresh air and time saver as a publicist. Oh and let’s not forget that she automatically send files in multiple formats so I can print or put on social media platforms immediately. You should only not work with Christine if you like to overpay people who under-deliver.”
“Christine Scott does absolutely amazing book design work, from concept to execution. I’ve been more than happy with her covers, which are compellingly rendered and carefully considered. Her interior page layout design always adds to the print as well as e-book experience, and her marketing design perfectly integrates with the books themselves in inspired and innovative ways. And she does it with keen attention to both deadline and detail, and at very reasonable prices. As a writer, I can’t speak highly enough of her work.”
“Back in 1994 when Albedo One was founded, we were one of the first speculative fiction magazines to have any dedicated web presence, but even then we were painfully aware that we were only harnessing a tiny fraction of the potential of the internet in reaching our readers. Over the years we’ve done our best to keep up with the times and have had at least five major website overhauls. But as technology continues to develop apace, it’s been pretty hard to keep up and there’s no doubt we were falling behind in both functionality and design. Everyone at Albedo One magazine now owes Christine Scott and Clever Crow Consulting and Design an immense debt of gratitude for single-handedly and gently but firmly bringing us into the twenty first century in what we can offer online.
Not only can we offer our readers more free online content, be it book and film reviews, short fiction, author interviews, news and updates, but the technical side of delivering all this is now easier than ever. And for our customers, ordering a copy of our magazine in either print or digital formats is streamlined and, on our side, much more automated, leaving us with time to concentrate on producing great content.
What’s more, the website looks great and it is a pleasure to see just how good it looks every time we publish new online content. Again, this is all thanks to Christine’s eye for classy design, as well as her knowledge of the practicalities (the nuts and bolts) of running a busy site. We could go on and on in praise of Christine’s work (and feel free to ask us to, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org), but we invite you first to head over to www.albedo1.com and take a look for yourself. We simply can’t recommend Christine and Clever Crow Consulting and Design highly enough.”
