Book Designer in Austin

As you already know, a book’s design can mean the difference between a great reading experience and a mediocre one — whether that entails a book’s cover, illustrations, or book interior. A book cover is the best investment that an author can make, while beautiful illustrations could make or break a children’s book. In the meantime, the best kind of book interior is designed so well and subtly that the reader won’t even notice anything but the story into which they’re getting pulled.

But good book designers are few and far between — and just how do you know that their style matches your book? The key is to go to a book designer’s full portfolio to examine their past works, and confirm that it aligns with your vision for your story.

Luckily, the best designers in Austin and around the world are on Reedsy. Our professional designers come from big 5 publishers, and they’ve designed in the past for George R.R. Martin and Veronica Roth. What’s more, you can browse each designer’s portfolio to find the perfect designer for your own book. Just be careful: once you start browsing, you might not be able to tear your eyes away, because each design is so stunning. Come sign up for a free Reedsy account today to start!
