Book Cover Designers in Chicago

Many authors overlook the importance of presentation and branding. Though DIY book covers are an inexpensive option, they rarely have the visual elements needed to attract readers and create a strong impression. This can make your book look unprofessional or amateur and repel readers as a result.

Such a book cover designer has all the experience needed to create a marketable cover for your work. Depending on whether you want a photo-based or illustrated cover, you’ll need a graphic designer with the right qualifications — someone who knows what sells in your genre and how to apply that to your cover.
