They say 'never judge a book by its cover' but the fact is that people do!
Most readers can tell whether a cover has been professionally designed and this may inform their decision whether to buy the book or not.
That's why a professional, high-resolution cover design is included in all of our publishing packages.
We want you to feel included when it comes to your cover design and we pride ourselves in working alongside our authors to create the best cover we can together.
Upon receiving your cover design brief, your allocated designer will put together a 'mood board', this will consist of fonts and images that we think you might like. This is where we want your feedback to ensure we are on the right 'visual' track.
Once we are clear that we understand your brief we'll create a selection of cover designs for you to choose from.
Not looking for a package? We also offer cover design and book formatting/typesetting as stand-alone services. Contact us for more information.
A few tips from our Chief Designer, Camilla...
Here at Spiderwize, we strive to achieve your book's full potential and, as designers, we like to get involved in every step of creating the aesthetics of your book.
Here are some things to think about when considering your cover design:
After learning of your preferences and skimming your work, we'll have a good feel and impression of your book. We can then create your cover design and it's up to you to give the go-ahead. I personally really enjoy capturing the essence of an author's idea and getting it just right.
We have access to a vast library of stock images, but we're equally happy to use any images you may wish to supply.
We'll provide a PDF or bound proof at several stages throughout the publishing process; from these you can make tweaks and amendments to make sure your book is just right.
