Why Professional Design?

Why hire a professional?

To design a cover that sells your book!!!!

Our job is to understand the market, current trends and varying approaches to make your book stand out from the others on-line or in the store.

How does a professional design?

Question, listen and advise. Listening and advising again!

We need to ask a ton of questions, no differently than your professional doctor would do.

A pro-designer will need to know many key aspects of your book’s content.  Being told the book is about Mary falling in love with Bill is only a surface answer. NOT enough information for a designer to create a best selling cover.

It’s OUR JOB TO ASK YOU! Who are Mary and Bill? Big difference in the cover design if they are martians on planet “Zowwie” or two mice on a small farm in Iowa. Genre of the book, time period, ages, etc., are a snippet of must-have answers.

IMPORTANT question and most often missed by amateur designers. WHO IS THE CLIENT/END-USER WHO WILL BE BUYING THIS BOOK?

Simple, big difference in the 20-something using it and the 60 year old adopting professor who buys it.

Advising the author, really?

YES, BIGGEST PART OF OUR JOB!

A simple concept but sometimes the hardest to accept.

Do you tell your plumber how to fix a broken water pipe? Hopefully not.

Book design, same theory.

We will work with and guide you through the design process. We can advise you why having a cover image of your daughter will not aid in selling your book, as adorable as she may be.

WE realize this book might be your dream come true. WE also realize you are hiring us for one reason and one reason only.

TO DESIGN A COVER SO YOUR BOOK IS NOTICED, REVIEWED and SOLD.
