After working as a Marketing Coordinator for one of the top independent travel agencies in Canada, and working alongside industry leaders, Ana opened her freelancing studio "Ana Chabrand Design House" with the idea to combine all of her skills and passions and offer a variety of services that extend far beyond the ordinary.
ABOUT OUR SPECIALITY - AUTHOR SERVICES
Ana has always loved spending hours in bookstores, picking out books from the shelves that stood out and getting mesmerized by their outstanding covers. Sometimes- just buying books because of their beautiful book covers. For her, it is truly a dream come true to design them professionally and help self-publish authors put them up on those same shelves.
We not only design a cover that you love, but we design a cover that is professional, that fits your genre, targets your audience the best and most importantly- a cover that stands out. We design covers that leave a strong impression from the 1st look- we use lots of contrast and impact to intrigue potential readers.
We were recently named #1 in the "Top 19 Book Cover Designers in Canada" by Writing Tips Oasis. See it here.

ANA CHABRAND is a freelance artist, graphic designer and writer located in Ottawa, ON Canada. She is the founder of this freelancing creative studio.
Ana has always loved spending hours in bookstores, picking out books from the shelves and getting mesmerized by their outstanding covers. Sometimes- just buying books because of their beautiful book covers. For her, it is truly a dream come true to design them professionally and help self-publish authors put them up in those same shelves.
For a long time, Ana dreamed of a studio where she would never have to limit her creativity, and where she would be able to expand her set of skills and most importantly share her passion. Having a strong love for learning and tons of passion, she built Ana Chabrand Design House in 2016.
Before Ana began freelancing, she worked for one of the top travel agencies in the country and worked alongside industry leaders. She started there as office/marketing assistant and within 4 months- was promoted to marketing coordinator and covered for the marketing manager while was away for maternity leave. During that time, she designed Ads for brands all over the world, wrote TV & Radio scripts for segments that appeared regularly on Global TV, CKNW and 3 segments on the Today Show.
Ana is fluent in both Spanish & English and very passionate about design, books, travelling and community building. She strongly believes creativity should not be limited and works best when pursuing different projects. Ana has two Diplomas and graduated with Honours from both of them, she is highly organized, a fast learner but a born leader.
Before she moved to Ontario, she lived in Vancouver, while there she hosted a book club that brought together people with similar interests and at one point had over 45 members. They were even featured in the newspaper and invited to a movie premiere when one of the books the club cherished was made into a movie. She hopes one day to reopen the same book club in her new city, as it brought her so much joy on her free time.
On her free time, she is either spending time with her family and friends, listening to movie soundtracks, reading or doing something creative, like painting or writing.
