Cover creation usually starts with the beginning of writing a book when you are refining the core idea you want to communicate to potential readers. Together with the title, the cover image needs to express what your book is about. While there are exceptions, it is best to orient the cover according to similar books on the market. While "being creative" helps you to stand out of the crowd, it might also confuse readers what your book is about.

Our approach to cover creation is to first

  • discuss with you the main theme of the book,
  • do market research of books with similar content,
  • propose an initial design, and then
  • iteratively create book cover designs based on interviews.

After each iteration, you can decide to keep the cover and publish it, or try another round of interviews.

  • Note that the time for the interviews (text) is free, we only charge for the work on the cover itself.
