What do they say
"Being a person with limited graphic creativity and without knowledge on design packages, I found Iliana’s help invaluable. Also very important was that she helped me to keep track of the deadlines. Iliana did a wonderful job designing the cover and the layout of my thesis. I love my book! I highly recommend her services to anybody in their last phase of the PhD, when time is limited and deadlines have to be met."
"After some discussion on the subject of my thesis and pictures on what style I liked, Iliana presented a first draft, which almost exactly matched to what I had envisioned. Suggestions were quickly incorporated and the whole process was efficient, very enjoyable and I'm very happy with the end result!"
"Ik vond het een feestje om mijn proefschrift door Iliana te laten ontwerpen. Op basis van mijn wensen en ideeen maakte ze verschillende ontwerpen en werkte die steeds verder uit aan de hand van mijn feedback. Wat ik bijzonder heb gewaardeerd aan Iliana is dat ze net zo lang doorgaat tot je helemaal tevreden bent. Ik ben enorm blij met het eindresultaat!"
"The work of Iliana was simply great. She paid a great deal of attention to details and she was very fast in transforming broad ideas about the cover and layout into concrete and beautiful examples. Her knowledge of the thesis printing process made this final stage extremely easy. I cannot thank her enough."
"Iliana did both the cover design and the layout of my thesis and I am very satisfied with the results. I came to Iliana with no clue of what to do for the cover of my PhD thesis, and after a brief and simple explanation of what I did during my research, she came up with a great concept for the cover design. She is very responsive, efficient and it is a pleasure to have worked with her. I definitely recommend her design studio!"
"It was a pleasure to work with Iliana. She is careful, patient, attentive, creative, responsive, communicative, curious, and a complete joy to work with. I found her website by accident, and am so lucky I did! I had some ideas about the layout of my book, but no ideas about the cover. She listened, asked good questions, and came up with beautifully designed book. I've received so many complements on her work. I would love to write another book just so I could work with her again."
"Iliana did the layout of my thesis, and helped me with finalising the cover. She has been very professional, and very promptly, even working night hours when we were getting close to the deadline. I'm sure if I had to do all the layout myself it would have taken me many more hours and a lot of frustration, and the final result would have looked way less nice. So to me, this was definitely worth the investment. "
"Iliana heeft zowel het ontwerpen van de omslag van mijn proefschrift (inclusief uitnodiging, stellingen en titelpagina’s) als het verzorgen van de lay-out van het binnenwerk voor haar rekening genomen. Hoewel ik dat laatste graag zelf had gedaan, heb ik er zeker geen spijt van dat ik dit alsnog uit handen heb gegeven. Ik ben erg blij met het eindresultaat!"
"Getting my cover designed by Iliana was one of my best decisions during my thesis writing period. She handled the design very professionally and I experienced the process very customer friendly. It was a joy to finally hand out my thesis to my colleagues who all lowed the cover-design."
"The process of working with Iliana was great. Whilst involving me in every step of the process, she was able to transform abstract ideas and concepts into a wonderful and colorful design."
"It was a great pleasure to work together with Iliana. She understood immediately what kind of cover I had in mind, and the first draft was already nearly perfect. She works in a very transparent and flexible way. In the last stretch of my PhD it was a relief to have her by my side, designing my cover and preparing the lay-out. On top of her creative and professional skills, she is also a very pleasant person to work with."
"Iliana helped me with the design of my PhD book cover and also checked my layout (actually helped me a lot). I’m very satisfied with the end result, my book looks amazing :). She is a great designer, full of awesome ideas and very easy going person. Communication was fast and efficient, it’s a pleasure to work with her. She listens carefully to what you want and turns it into a beautiful peace of art!!! She has experience not only with design but also with printing books and knows all the details about making the best looking PhD thesis. I would definitely recommend her design studio to anyone!"
"Afgelopen vrijdag heb ik het geprinte proefschrift opgehaald bij GVO en ben ik begonnen met het uitdelen ervan aan mijn begeleiders en collega's. Ik krijg al veel leuke feedback op de omslag en de layout. Bedankt voor alle moeite, ik ben er erg tevreden mee."
"I came to Iliana without any clear picture of my thesis cover. She helped me find out what I like by asking questions. Iliana is an experienced and professional designer who always takes time to dig out what you want, and make it better than expected. I am very happy to have her helping me with my thesis design while I am so busy with preparing defense, publishing my work. She takes a lot of responsibility and always give valuable suggestions for the design, she also has good contact with printers. In the end, I had a beautifully designed thesis book at hand, with heavy work from Iliana. I would definitely recommend Iliana to my PhD colleagues ."
"Iliana did wonderful job on my thesis cover and layout on such short notice! Her help made the last phase of my PhD life much easier! Her design is just simply fantastic! I enjoyed very much working with her - a creative, patient and professional designer! "
