In this episode of The Book Cover Design Podcast I talk a bit about things that are difficult in book cover designs o you can avoid making mistakes you don’t need to make.
Don’t make things hard on yourself
Being creative is not suppose to be a hard process. Most people just don’t participate. When I look at a blank book cover design I see about 100 tillion different options I could go with but through the process of design I can narrow it down into one. My favorite part about the book cover design process is that from start to finish I usually surprise myself. I like the fact that every book cover on the market looks special and different in their own unique way.
Over the past few years designing book covers, I can say this much. Have a vision. Sometimes authors come to me with their visions and sometimes I bring in my own. My point is, that vision is what’s going to take your book to the next level. This is the source of creativeness. Why not use it?
