Barbara LeVan Fisher is an extremely talented and versatile designer. She has a remarkable ability to work across many subjects/categories and that makes her a go-to designer for our diverse list of books at HarperOne. She always produces covers that are thoughtfully put-together, highly creative, innovative and striking. On top of that, she has a joyful spirit that makes working with her not only a productive, but also, a wonderful experience. We highly recommend her.

As Senior Editor at HarperCollins, I had the pleasure of working with Barbara on the book jacket design for several titles. I was always glad when she was hired by our Art Director for my projects, as she always produced the most thoughtful and beautiful designs. I couldn’t recommend her more highly!

In my 25 years in publishing, Barb ranks among the top three designers with whom I’ve had the privilege of working. Yes, she has all the head knowledge, training, and experience a publisher wants in a designer, but she also has an “untrainable” talent for designing covers that fully and consistently hit the mark. The fact that she has an amazing attitude and work ethic only makes working with her that much more enjoyable!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Barb on a number of book cover design projects while at HarperCollins and on a freelance basis. Her work has been a key ingredient in making bestsellers with covers that attract attention and faithfully represent the author’s work. She is a wonderful collaborator and is very skilled at translating vision into visuals. I’m always impressed by the menu of cover options she supplies during the creative process and her cheerful willingness to see a project though to the bitter end—with terrific results. Highly recommended.
