  • I have worked with Craig for over ten years. He is an extremely good designer – creative, fast, adaptable, but very importantly responsive to the needs of his client. Craig is fun to work with and I look forward to doing so again.Kevin Chapman (President of PANZ 2010–13) and founder of Upstart Press
  • Craig’s design for my Ihaka novel Death on Demand created one of the very best covers I’ve had on any of my books here or overseas.Paul Thomas
  • Craig has been involved with the production of many of my wine books, including two titles that were singled out by many reviewers for the high standard of their design – Wine Atlas of New Zealand and 100 Must-Try New Zealand Wines. He is a highly talented book designer and I thoroughly recommend his work.Michael Cooper
  • Aside from his outstanding design skills, Craig also has great technical know-how. He keeps himself up to date with the latest design/print technology and is always looking for faster or more accurate ways of completing a job. The end result is clean, stable files — certainly nothing messy for the printer to sort out!
    Jane Hingston, Managing Editor
  • Craig designed the cover and interior layout for my novel ‘Cross Fingers.’ While the design process can be a nerve-wracking process for an author, I was immediately captivated by the cover design and I’ve subsequently had many favourable comments on the book’s presentation. I have no hesitation in recommending his services.
    Paddy Richardson
  • Many elements go into the ultimate success of a book: one of the most crucial is its design, the way it looks: a good design reflects what the book is about and it makes a book stand out when among others in a shop. An even better design is one that still looks good years later. Craig Violich is an expert at combining all these aspects into every book. Ron Palenski
