As a first-time author, I found Mayfly Design to be the perfect partner for designing my book and preparing it for publishing. They took the time to understand exactly what services I required and provided a clear and detailed work proposal, then led me through the Mayfly process, which was reliable, complete, and collaborative. By executing the process step-by-step, Mayfly Design gave me complete confidence that every single detail was being managed correctly. The service was superbly professional and top-notch in every way, and my project was completed on time and within budget. I could not be more delighted with the final result!
