Hi there! I have been a freelance, professional graphic designer for over 15 years, and with the advent of self-publishing and because of my love of books, I have recently started to designing book covers. So if you desire a book cover professionally designed with love, care and attention you’ve come to the right place.
To give you an idea of how I work for a full commission, here are the steps outlined in detail below. But there are two other cheaper options: my Commission Rapidé service if you know the images you want or select one of my pre-made covers from GoOnWrite.com. And if you have any questions about the process simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. BOOK IN THE WORK
You send me a deposit of 50% for the price of the amount of cover options you want me to design. I can take payment through PayPal.
2. I ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS
I send through a list of questions asking what you need specifically – you might have a loose or very specific brief. The questions are a great prompt for your ideas.
3. EMAIL ME THE ANSWERS
You can give me as little or as much info as you want. I happy working to something specific as well working from a ‘blank canvas’ – so don’t worry.
4. I DESIGN AND SEND THE DRAFTS
I will sit down and design your options. Which takes me about 7-10 days depending on how busy I am with other people’s covers. If longer I will tell you.
5. PICK YOUR DESIGN
Take a look at the designs I’ve sent and pick the one that you think works best and then we’ll take it from there.
6. UNLIMITED REVISIONS
I will continue to make any changes to the cover until you are 100% happy with the outcome, at no extra charge.
7. FINAL SEND PAYMENT
Once we are there. Simply send me the remaining balance of 50%.
8. I EMAIL THE FINAL FILES
Your book cover design will be emailed to you at 1,562 pixels wide by 2,500 pixels high, which is the perfect size for Kindle.
