Hello, I'm Alex Lulu Nightingale, the designer behind Colors out of Space designs.
I have been designing book covers since 2015. It started as a hobby which quickly evolved into freelance work.
I love getting inspired by a good book or a song or just an idea and hopefully create something beautiful for you.
After all....

"I loved these designs I feel like I personally should have taken more time to give feedback because I like more of them than I originally thought I did. I'm really excited to use these illustrations to promote my book. Thank you to Colors out of Space!"

"Ladybyrd quickly separated their designs from the competitors by matching them so well to the book. I wrote an action adventure, and Ladybyrd's cover conveyed the urgency and energy of the premise in a few images that really sell the promise of the story."

"Ladybyrd got it right from the beginning. The cover was supposed to remind of the da Vinci Code, as in people who like the da Vinco Code also love this book. It's inventive how Ladybyrd created the caduceus into the title. Also in the aftermath Ladybyrd..."
