Book Designer Calgary

Whether you need a full cover design, interior illustrations, or just a few decorative flourishes around your chapter headings, remember one crucial thing: your book designer is definitely not someone to compromise on. It doesn’t matter what type of design work it is, or the extent of it — even the smallest flaw in the most insignificant piece of design can signal to readers that the whole book is sloppy, rather than a carefully constructed labor of love.

This is why it’s so important to look at potential designers’ portfolios, in order to determine the quality of their work firsthand. If you think a book designer’s work is “just okay,” if they have minimal experience in your genre, or if they do good work but their style simply isn’t to your taste, don’t swallow your instincts — go with the designer who gets an unmitigated “yes!” on all fronts. The perfect design professional might be expensive, but again, this is one area where you don’t want to compromise. You worked hard on the words in your book, after all; don’t you want the visuals to do it justice? (Not to mention that whole thing about readers being dissuaded by amateur-looking book design.)

And if you’re looking for a stellar book designer in Calgary, you can’t go wrong starting your search on Reedsy. We have the most talented book designers in the business, many of whom have designed covers and illustrations for Big 5 books that went on to become bestsellers. Want that same fate for your book? You can take the first step by browsing through our Calgary book designers’ profiles today.
