What client’s say


Maxim Books

I have used Ross’s design skills on two books, digital stories and a newsletter. The end result has always exceeded my expectations. Ross has a fine eye for detail and his work is original and creatively put together. I would recommend Ross to anyone looking for a book designer.

‘I could not have wished for a more accomplished person than Ross to manage all phases of the publication of my book: Technological Innovation and Economic Growth in New Zealand – 1918 to ”Think Big”. He arranged for editing of the text, finding and gaining permissions for images, carried out the design, layout and typesetting and arranged for printing, all with a fastidious attention to detail.’

What a great experience and result working with Ross of Mills Design to develop and achieve a very high quality publication of the Clark family history. 

When I first met up with Ross I had a well-developed family history story from the 1800s to the present day which I wished to publish to a high quality. But what were the next steps? Ross provided excellent guidance based on a wide range of experience, and did it in a very professional but relaxed manner. He developed design concepts for the publication, arranged an editor and the publisher, always with options to consider. He also ensured I did not lose sight of our goal of a high quality publication, even when there was rework on my part or further research on references and dates etc was required.

Most importantly the wider family have been delighted and acknowledged we achieved an excellent quality publication, and had an important role in capturing the family history before it was lost.
