Good book design

A successful book cover will capture the essence of the book with a simple idea. And it should make you want to stop and take a closer look. I’m a freelance graphic designer specializing in book design. On this website you’ll see samples of my work. I invite you to contact me if you feel stuck and need fresh ideas for a book cover. No strings and free of charge.

What I offer you
• Book cover design
• Interior layout / editorial design
• Illustration
• Ebook production

What to expect
Rest assured that I have a grip on the small things as well as the big picture. I have extensive experience with both the technical and creative parts of book production. Whenever possible, I read the manuscript for the book. I’ll be asking a lot of questions and I’ll listen a lot. And I keep working at it until you’re satisfied with the result.

Who I am
Although I have been working with book design for more than 25 years, my enthusiasm for books is unchanged. When collaborating, I bring humor and kindness to the table.

Professional recommendations:

Through many years of collaboration, Mons has solved countless assignments regarding book covers and book designs for me, both with his clear insight and great understanding for solutions – and to the satisfaction of the authors and the editor.

Arvid Honoré, Book Editor

Working with Mons is a pleasure because he is both professional and a nice and positive person. He listens carefully to what you have in mind as a client, and it’s easy to talk things over. And last but not least, the assignments are completed within the agreed time frame.

Kirsten Jehg Andersen, Sales and Marketing Coordinator, Biosa Denmark

I’ve worked together with Mons for more than 20 years. What keeps surprising me is that his book covers never turn out the way I expect. Danish book covers are generally quite predictable, but Mons is one of a kind and has international quality. Mons has designed every single book cover for Lokumsbogen (Eng. transl.: The Toilet Book) from 1999 until now – more than 25 book covers – and I laugh out loud every time he hands in the latest one.
