"I went through two different artists and spent $1,000 before I discovered Madli. She was professional and thorough throughout the entire process and really helped me figure out how I wanted the cover for my book to be. She kept in contact throughout the entire process and really worked with me to bring my ideas to the page. I was thrilled to receive the final copies of the cover as unlike with the previous two that I had worked with, looking at the work Madli had done I just knew this is the designer I wanted to work with on future projects. Will definitely be working with her again for the future books in my series."

"This was my second time working with Madli, and the experience was just as wonderful as the first. She is professional, punctual, and gives excellent and insightful input when discussing cover design and composition. I certainly plan to work with her again in the future."

"Madli was a pleasure to work with and super professional from the get-go. This is my first time commissioning a book cover, and she was super patient with walking me through the process. Also, she really made me feel like she was invested in creating the best cover for my story; she asked a ton of questions and listened to my sometimes rambly thoughts on what I wanted the cover to convey. The cover turned out absolutely beautiful, and I'm so excited to work with Madli to finish the overall sleeve/cover once I finish writing. Highly, highly recommend! :)"

"She listened to everything that I asked for. There was a consultation where we went over what I expected and what she expected from me. Multiple revisions and quick responses were available. I will DEFINITELY go through her again."

"I loved working with Madli. She was so thorough and professional. Communication was great and she really took into consideration what I wanted for the characters she illustrated for me. I couldn't have asked for a better artist to work with and definitely want to work with her again."

"Very professional, great communication and an exceptional artist."

"I'm a big believer in prioritizing illustrators that blend professionality and creativity, and Madli's style is a fantastic cocktail of both. Not only does she have a beautiful freehand brushstroke style that gave my illustration nuance, but she was flexible where I needed change and suggestive when I needed guidance. This balance made her the perfect collaborator and I'd return to Reedsy any day to make sure I get to contract with her. If depth, scenery or nuanced femininity is what you're looking for, trust me, Madli can more than handle it."

"Madli is immensely talented and so easy to work with. She listened carefully, took feedback well, and was dedicated to making my (sometimes poorly described) vision for the cover illustration of my debut YA novel come to life. In addition, Madli answered questions, explained the process patiently, and was extremely friendly. Most of all, her work is absolutely beautiful, and she created something that will look right at home on a YA bookshelf but at the same time looks absolutely unique. I couldn't have been happier with the experience!"

"Madli was everything I could have ever hoped for. I appreciated that she met with me in person to go over what I expected from the design. She asked good questions that helped us decide on a direction to go. Madli worked well with my schedule and budget and was very accommodating when I had to push the deadline back. The art she created for my book cover is so beautiful I can't stop looking at it. It has symbolism, deep emotion and clear typography. Working with her has been a dream. I highly recommend it."

"Madli was amazing! This is my first book and she did a great job refining my book covers. She was professional in her communication too. She gave me good advice and suggestions. I would definitely work with her again."

"Working with Madli was a wonderful experience! My book cover greatly benefited from her professional knowledge, creativity, talent, and skill. Despite the time difference for communication, she was always responsive in a timely manner, with in a day or two. She was a true collaborator, asking questions and adapting the work based on my feedback, resulting in a beautiful cover that brought my vision to life and is sure to draw in readers as well. Would highly recommend her to other self-publishing authors."

"Madli was incredible - not only was the cover stunning, but she was both professional and lovely to chat with. I'll certainly keep her in mind for future projects!"

"Absolute fantastic experience working with Madli, I would HIGHLY recommend working with her. She has a unique, individual style that she brings to her art, and at the same time, she is open to exploring different ideas. I don't think there is a genre or concept she couldn't tackle, so if you're an author struggling to find the right designer to bring your cover idea to life, give Madli a try.
I had a specific and potentially unusual idea for my book cover, and I was worried I wouldn't be able to find an artist who could do it justice. But Madli didn't hesitate to dive right in and start creating it, and she embraced the project with enthusiasm. She found a way to take what was in my head and bring it to life. And actually, the result was a book cover that far exceeded what I even imagined was possible!
As a bonus, Madli is also knowledgable about certain aspects of self-publish
ing, which was so helpful to me as this was my first book as an independent author. So she was able to answer some questions I had along the way.
In summary, Madli is a great collaborator, very easy to work with, supportive of the author, and of course, a brilliant artist."

"Madli was a joy to work with. As my first novel there was still a lot I didn’t understand and she helped me to better understand the ins and outs of design."

"Madli was working with me on a complex internal illustration for my book that included five characters and background full of symbols. Not only she managed to capture the mood of characters and create a beautiful scenery for them with her creative talent, but she also perfectly handled technical aspects of the right placement, composition, and colour balance. When I opened the first colourful draft she provided, I was excited, touched, and impressed how much she understood my story and significantly enriched it with her art. We barely needed to make any additional changes, but when we did – she handled the process in the most professional and pleasant manner. The result is stunning. I consider her illustration as an essential contribution to the success of my book. I personally also admire her as an artist and person as well."

"Best artist I have ever worked with. Super professional and very skilled. My final cover was exactly what I wanted and I've already had multiple people remark on how beautiful it is."

"Madli stood out from the crowd right from the beginning with her prompt replies and professionalism. She wanted to really understand our project and set up a face time so could get to know one another and so she could best understand our needs. The whole experience was a blessing from start to finish and all at a very fair price. You want regret giving Madli a try – she even thought of design elements and questions that I didn’t even know to ask about. Madli is a true gem!"

"I cannot recommend Madli enough. Not only is she incredibly talented and creative but she is the loveliest human being and such a pleasure to work with.Madli took the time to really understand my vision for the cover and went above and beyond  in her work to prepare. Throughout the design process, she was in close communication and was always responsive to feedback and trying things out. The final result is an absolutely stunning book cover that I cannot wait to release. I highly recommend working with Madli."

"My experience with working with Madli was amazing! She brought the image that I had in mind to life. Madli followed my creative direction and worked on every detail of the cover of my book. She made sure that I was not forgetting anything in the the customisation of my cover. This added guidance was assuring for me as I have never worked with an Illustrator before. I would definitely recommend Madli to any author as she is very skilled and delivered a high quality final product."

"Working with Madli has been hands down the best experience I have ever had with an artist. I am always wary about working with people online but Madli from the start has created a welcoming and comfortable environment for us to work in. She helped me with a cover design and I was blown away by how much time and consideration went into the project. I am so happy with the results and can’t wait to commission her for my other covers. If there  is any advice I would give to a writer looking for an artist is to hire Madli asap! Thanks again Madli!”

Not only is she truly great at what she does, she is a very kind and caring person. She works very hard and will always go above and beyond for her clients.

"Madli is wonderful to work with. She has such a unique style to her designs, brings so much creativity to products, and is incredibly good at sticking to schedules as well as being easy to communicate with. Thank you so much for my book cover!”

"Madli is a delightful person and a serious artist. I needed three cover illustrations (print and ebook) for my trilogy. Madli invested the time needed to understand and direct my vision toward a unified concept for all three covers before putting "pencil to paper" to sketch her interpretations. Faithful to my vision, these sketches were far superior to any expression I could have imagined. And in composition, color, and attention to detail, the final illustrations were inspirational! Even now I am touched by their beauty. I'm amazed at my luck in finding such a talented artist and impeccable professional. Thank you, again, Madli!”

"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Madli or her work. Her ability to hone in on the smallest details and capture the energy of the work is impeccable. She is professional, responsive, and the best artist and illustrator I’ve ever worked with on a project. She is someone I will continue to utilize for many projects to come

Antonio R.

"If you're reading this, it's probably because you've been struck by Madli's beautiful artwork. You're trying to picture your cover in the right style, trying to imagine how it will look. Well, the same happened to me. I saw Madli's work and knew instantly that I NEEDED to work with her.

I can't explain how happy I was when I heard back from her. From the moment we started, she was extremely kind and compassionate. No ego, no gloating about her work, just pure joy from what she does. We stayed in touch the whole time, and she addressed all of my needs/ questions. And in the end, we created a beautiful cover for my novel!”
