Wilhelm Design

wilhelmLogo08Wilhelm Design is the husband and wife design team of Nate and Abbey Myers. With 15 years of experience in the publishing field and a BFA in Graphic Design we work together to create unique designs that help our authors get noticed. We’ve created thousands of unique covers for independent authors and publishers and many of those books have gone on to win awards such as the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award.

We understand how much of a process it is to get your book in print. Because of this we don’t simply create your designs and leave it up to you to figure it out. We work with you throughout the process, creating your unique book cover, interior layout and help you prepare your files for your chosen printer. We know getting your book published is just the beginning and can work on any marketing materials associated with your book if you so wish.

As it gets easier for people to publish books with the growing print-on-demand and ebook market, it’s also easier for a book to get lost in the crowd. We provide a personal touch in taking your story and creating a professional, eye-catching design that you can be proud to show the world.

Nate worked for me when I owned WinePress Publishing. He grew to be a creative and inspirational designer during the 5 years he worked at WinePress, and his work won an award from one of our printers. If you need great design at a fair price, Nate will exceed your expectations!

Talented, professional, creative with an eye for detail are the words I would use to describe Nate Myers of Wilhelm Design Company. Just give him some ideas of what you’re looking for and he’ll take it from there. Our clients are thrilled with the final product, thanks much to Nate and his creativity.
