Hire the best book cover designers in the UK


If a picture is worth a thousand words, a good book cover designer is worth your investment — and more.


Not only does a book cover fully represent the words inside of the book, but it may also be the single most critical component of an author’s marketing and branding plan. The book cover is the first thing that the public will see on physical and virtual bookshelves, and it’s what will convince a potential buyer to linger a few extra seconds on your blurb — precious time that might be the difference between a sale and no sale. And make no mistake: a poorly-designed cover will separate the amateurs from the bestsellers on that bookshelf.


That’s why it’s so important to get a professional-grade book cover that’s done by a proven book cover designer. The ideal book cover designer will possess not only talent, but also years of industry experience. Perhaps more pertinently, you should find a book cover designer for hire in the UK who has worked in your specific genre. This will ensure that the designer understands how to create an eye-catching cover still that conforms to the conventions and style of your niche.
