The cover of your book has only a moment to make a seductive first impression. An effective design defines your book’s tone and style. It also tells buyers in an instant that your story will be compelling.
At the same time, your cover design must compete with thousands of other books appearing each month. Sometimes, the cover may even have to serve you at the size of a postage stamp, in black and white! Art, typography, color and contrast must coalesce in a dynamic balance that commands attention, even admiration.
We approach a book cover as the emissary of the author and the publisher. We’ll make sure your cover conveys exactly the right message.
To help you determine how elaborate a cover design you require, we work within three levels:
- Essential This is a complete design of limited complexity based on a concept and art/photos you provide. If you have all the art elements and a strong design concept already worked out, let us bring the pieces together as a pleasing and effective whole.
- Accomplished We’ll execute a winning cover of moderate complexity, collaborating with you on concept, conducting image research as needed, and developing a custom treatment.
- Superior Some books demand an elaborate design, require research and development, custom illustrations or digital manipulation.
We are designers and book lovers; we can bring your vision to the page.
