Niki Ellis Designs, LLC was started on a wing and a prayer! Being creative has always been in my heart; whether it's drawing, painting, knitting, anything to 'create'!

I've been an HS teacher, a basketball, volleyball and swim coach, a croupier (that's a Craps dealer, if you didn't know!), a builder of web and registration sites, but there was still something missing...

When I became a mom and watched my youngest turn into an amazing artist and start his own design business, things just seemed to click. I mean, he had to have had that creative gene from someone, right? So, I watched, learned, asked hundreds of questions (much to his dismay), watched tutorials every chance I could, went to experts .... and Ta-Da!

So now I am my own boss, own my own company and do something I love and am passionate about!

I get to let my 'creative muse' out and work with some amazing people who trust me with their dreams and visions!


"Lorraine and her team at Niki Ellis Designs have a heart for service joined to creativity without bounds. They worked tirelessly to make my vision come to life, and I'm so grateful for how gorgeous they made my books!"
USA Today Bestselling Author Angel Payne

“Niki is an exceptional designer, with an amazing eye for detail and unmatched design instincts. I was blown away by her ability to “get” exactly what I wanted by only a bit of back and forth. Niki seemed to intuitively know what would appeal to not only me, but my genre, as well as what the readers would want to see. Her designs are fresh and on trend, rivaling any mainstream publishing house. Niki is a blast to work with, very professional, and very timely. I will continue to use Niki for all of my future projects, and she gets my highest recommendation.”
Amanda McKinney, Bestselling and multi-award-winning author of Romantic Suspense

“Niki was a lifesaver when I needed one. She immediately helped me revamp two book covers, one I was reworking and another that was due to come out in a week. The covers she created were awesome and just what I wanted. She was open, honest and professional. Honestly she was like a good...great friend. Super talented and I highly recommend her!!”
Author M.A. Gonzales

"I absolutely love the video trailers Niki Ellis (Lorraine Gibson) has done for my last few book releases. They're edgy and draw the readers in.  She's a pleasure to work with, and I'll definitely be back for more!"
Award-winning Author Samantha A. Cole

"I am amazed and humbled by her work ethic and speed! When I went to her about a trailer she listened to what I wanted and made my vision come to life. I recommend her to all! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️star service."
Author Mikel Wilson

"Working with the multi-talented Niki Ellis Designs (Lorraine Gibson) has not only been fun, it’s been exactly what I needed. As a new author – with a background in art – I may well have been her pickiest client! She listened to what I wanted and then patiently worked with me to get it just right. The end result is exactly what I’d hoped for! She’s already got the next two book covers in my series nearly finished and I can’t wait for their reveals! Thank you, Niki Ellis Designs - It's been my privilege to work with you!"
