Tristan Vick's Design Portfolio
In addition to being a professional writer and a published author, I have dabbled in some logo design. Although graphic design isn't my main profession, I find the creation process highly rewarding. It's extremely fun and challenging to build something from the ground up and I've always had a decent design sense and am fairly good at getting what I have in my mind's eye down on paper.
I do provide limited logo design services.
Logo design + business card design with logo $100.
Non-Fiction Book cover design $200.

Unused Book Cover Concepts
Below is a mock-up concept for my brothers photo art book featuring original illustrations of Gilbert & Sullivan musicals. He probably won't use this version, as he makes his own covers. But he felt stuck and needed some recommendations, so I whipped this up so that he's have something to springboard off of. I hope it helped.
Here's a mock-up I did for my friend Jonathan M.S. Pearce. He actually ended up using all the elements of this cover in his final version with a few additional tweaks.
Below is the Dark Forces of Nature cover I made. I've made about half of my published covers. Although my skills with photoshop are limited, I improve step by step each time I make a new cover. I don't really have any goals of becoming an expert cover designer, I just enjoy it as a hobby.
Using some stock art (these images by Tithi Luadthong) I threw on some simple text and made ads for my Dark Forces book, which contains numerous sci-fi short stories about different things--some future based, some tech based, some all out space horror blended with space opera. Because the stories are all unique, I made several ads. These are the ones which resonated with people the most.

Business Card / Meishi 名刺 Designs
These are my (and my wife's) business cards.
Vera Japan is the company my wife works for. I designed new business cards for them that would stand out.
