Stunning and eye-catching book cover design

We make your book cover design take centre stage.

Effective book cover design will capture your audience’s attention. It is the first bit at the cherry. Our aim is to provide attractive and alluring book cover design that captures the essence of your book.

We create unique and eye-catching design that allows your book cover to attract and inform your potential audience.

How do we do this?
The process of book cover design starts with us becoming familiar with your manuscript. If time permits, we read your book to pick up on major themes and pivotal moments in your book. If you have a tight deadline, we work around this by asking you to provide a brief overview of your book.

We brainstorm ideas with you. We talk about the genre, the book format, your target audience and any ideas you have that you want to share. This discussion informs our ideas on the look and feel of your book cover.

We then provide two unique designs as starting points. These initial designs steer the future design for the project. This process gives us an opportunity to receive your response and feedback. This the start of honing down the design to create the perfect cover for your book.

Our aim is to design the perfect book cover for your book.

Where we begin…
It all starts with a complimentary 30 minute consultation. This allows us to talk about your book’s subject matter in depth, your ideas and target audience to establish a solid book cover design direction. We can then put together a quote for you. Please phone or email us to schedule your free consultation.
