We like to use our blog to delve deeper into the world of design by interviewing some of our best designers.
“My #1 piece of advice by far would be to ask authors to ask their designers for input and trust in their designer’s judgement – even if they think their “idea” might be better… Ideas are good by way of suggestion, but a decent designer will already have a good reason for everything in their design.”...
“I believe that an eye-catching, well-crafted, well-designed cover increases the value of a book to readers and booksellers. A book cover should receive as much careful attention as it needs to become the best it can be, just like the text within.”
“The perfect cover is seductive, mysterious, puzzling. The perfect cover is either bold or very subtle. The perfect cover stimulates my imagination or serves as a gateway to what we can find inside. The perfect cover is not explicit or gives too much away. The perfect cover is not ashamed to be seen riding the metro or appearing in public places.”
