“Working with Alicia Mikles is a delight. She served as freelance art director for several of our very involved, high profile projects; both Paula Deen Cook Books, Sean Covey’s The 7 Habits of Happy Kids, and Jean Chatzky’s Not Your Parents’ Money Book. Alicia took these projects and ran with them. She was the main contact for the illustrators, emailing daily with art revisions and encouragement. She was completely on top of schedules and kept everything running smoothly. And most importantly, her lovely designs made these projects sing! We couldn’t have been more pleased with her work and I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a freelance designer/art director.”

Lizzy BromleyExecutive Art Director, Simon and Schuster

“Alicia is a joy to work with. She quickly grasps the nature of the work I’m seeking, and comes back with beautiful, clean, creative designs. One of the great things about Alicia is that, in addition to being creative, she responds well to suggestions and is a true team player. She is dedicated and passionate about her work while remaining open and receptive to others’ ideas and suggestions. I use her for the majority of my projects, and would recommend her to anyone who was interested in working with an intelligent, creative, personable designer.”

Michelle Bisson, Publisher, Marshall Cavendish

“Alicia Mikles was the designer and art director for my children’s book imprint at HarperCollins for many years. She is an extraordinary talent with a keen eye, a superior sense of organization, and tremendous sense of style. She has worked on all kinds of picture books and novels with best-selling and award-winning authors such as Jamie Lee Curtis & Laura Cornell, Clive Barker, and Jim & Kate McMullan. It is a pleasure to work with her, and I could not recommend a designer/art director more highly.”
