Bailey McGinn – Designer

A highly collaborative book designer with a passion for fun typography, bold colour, and illustrated fiction. Let's work together.


Hello I'm Bailey, a Canadian book designer specialising in illustration based out of La Rochelle, France.

As a book designer I have had the opportunity (and distinct pleasure) of working across many styles. Each book demands a unique treatment considering not only genre conventions but the author's voice, audience expectations, themes and motifs, and current design trends. Keeping this in mind, my objective is simple: client satisfaction and quality production.

I love colour, illustration, bold typography, minimalism and hand-lettering which lends itself well to rom-coms, contemporary fiction and cozy mysteries.

I hold degrees in both graphic design and English Literature. I am a visual storyteller, illustrator, and meticulous typographer. I help authors bring their vision to life, and I’m ready to help you!


 I charge a rate of €600. I’m open to a payment plan if you prefer.

 Your package includes:

-ebook cover design print cover design based on template of your distribution service/s illustration services
-unlimited revisions (I really want you to be happy with the end result and will work until we get it right!)
-3D book mockups for marketing

Bailey did an amazing job! Not only was this a five-star collaboration for the standard reasons above (professionalism, quality, value, and responsiveness), Bailey was so easy to work with and to talk to regarding the vision I had for my cover art. This wasn't just a transaction, this was true teamwork, and I am so grateful to Bailey for being so willing to work with me and on this project!

Bailey has been a Godsend. She was so dedicated, kind, patient, and rigorous. I don't know how I would have done without her. She also managed to capture perfectly the essence of my book and character dynamics. I hope we'll get to work together again because i'm sure a huge part of my book's success will be because of the amazing cover Bailey designed.
