DesignWise Art is a boutique graphic design studio focused on graphic design services for writers and authors. We assist with self-publishing on-demand paperbacks and ebooks primarily via Amazon, Ingram Spark, and Draft2Digital. Our graphic services include poster design, Wix author website creation, and marketing materials (such as business cards, book markers, book signing materials, illustration, chapter art, and unique logo design).

DesignWise Art is owned and operated by Amy Collen, a native Oregonian, artist, and fiction writer. She and her husband Andy, author of Growing Up Aspen, run Happy Trails Animation. Together they produce animated book covers, motion posters, and motion comics. Amy also runs Twist And Turn Press which provides developmental editing services, book design, and self-publishing services.

Amy received her BFA from Pacific NW College of Art in Portland, OR and an AS in visual communication from Chemeketa CC in Salem, OR.

DesignWise Art / Twist And Turn Press provide collaborative, personal service. Clients enjoy the process and the results, from the work they do to improve their story, to book cover concepts, to the publishing of their work. We enjoy assisting authors and creating print and web materials that market them well.
