BOOK COVER DESIGN
BOOK COVER DESIGN EXAMPLES
I truly love books. Your story deserves the best possible representation of the time and passion that you poured into the pages. I care deeply about bringing your book to life, reaching your audience, crafting a beautiful book cover to reflect the character of your writing; and ultimately selling your story. Those who know me, are not surprised that book design is my darling.
You did the work - the exhilarating, devastating work of writing a book. Now it is time to send it out into the world and make the move from writer to author. Let's turn that story into a real book to hold in your hands and parade down the street - possibly on a red velvet pillow surrounded by a marching band AND a string quartet. And fireworks.
THE BOOK: Breastfeeding is a Bitch, but we Lovingly Do It Anyway by Cassi Clark
THE STORY: A humorous, commiserative memoir that tells the truth about the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of breastfeeding. Features the stories of dozens of saints (read: moms) with all of the laughter, pain, terror, humanity and even bliss that comes with breastfeeding.
THE BOOK: The Secret Life of Anna Blanc Audio Book by Jennifer Kincheloe, read by Moira Quirk
THE STORY: It's 1907 Los Angeles. Mischievous socialite Anna Blanc is the kind of young woman who devours purloined crime novels—but must disguise them behind covers of more domestically-appropriate reading. She could match wits with Sherlock Holmes, but in her world women are not allowed to hunt criminals.
THE BOOK: Doctor, Doctor a Memoir by Suzanne Blanchard
THE STORY: This story is inspired by Suzanne’s parents, two medically educated people ho had been working the trenches together, and become motivated to improve their lives, and that of their community. They did not look for government money. They looked within their community and themselves.
WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING...
“When I asked Katie to design my breastfeeding book cover I expected an image of a woman screaming in pain while a scary baby latched viscously to her boob.
That is not what I got. What I got was a series of covers that evoked the pain and humor of my book. They were the kind of book covers that said “send me to your best friend,” which happened to fit my marketing campaign.
Even more than nailing the feeling of my book, the cover we ultimately picked, was immensely brand-able. Her design translated easily to my platform, and she made me social media banners, website images, bookmarks, tee shirt designs, even the little url image.
Her wonderful work made my book recognizable and cult-able. It is the perfect amount of appealing, evocative and useful.
I will hire her to do all my book covers.”
Author of 'Breastfeeding is a Bitch, But We Lovingly Do It Anyway'
“Katie is an absolute joy to create with. I left our meetings feeling energized and optimistic about our projects. She designed four book covers for me and allowed me to bring my own images to the creative process. She never once got impatient with me when I had her tweak this or tweak that until I was satisfied.
If you need somebody to create a book cover from scratch she'll do the research and tap into the feeling you are trying to convey with the book cover. If you have a vision for the book cover, your own images, your own font style you want to use, she can pull it all together for you.
She is MY designer for everything; book covers, logos, icons, tshirts designs, and all other merch designs. Treat yourself and hire Katie to help you launch your dreams.”
