We make your book cover design take centre stage.

Effective book cover design will capture your audience’s attention. We aim to provide an attractive and alluring book cover that captures the essence of your book.

We create unique and eye-catching designs 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 allows us 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.

We’ll design your front cover, spine and back cover to your complete satisfaction. If your book is a hardcover with dust jacket, your book cover may also require design of the internal folds (these are sometimes called gatefolds).

We can also assist you with getting an ISBN, as well as generating a barcode if you require.

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.
