Let us begin with a simple question. What is the first thing that would attract you into buying a book, if you have never heard of it earlier?
Of course it is the way the book looks—precisely, the cover.
The cover may not persuade you to buy it but it makes you wanting to take a look at the book. That definitely is the result that professional companies offering book cover designing services strive to achieve.
This takes us to the next question. How does one go about the process of designing covers for books, if she/he wants to make a killer design for a book that embraces everything it says?
Let’s find out.
Metaphors are very compelling
Literal metaphors are one of the most loved styles of popular authors when they want to make a strong statement. Similarly, it must be a unique element of your design as well. The difference is that you would use visual elements instead of words. While using visual metaphors,make sure that they fit the context precisely.
Larger than life iconic images
Images have an intrinsic trait to grab human attention in microseconds. This peculiarity of the images must be used while you are in the process of book cover creating. A search into archives for iconic images that can fit everything that the title wants to say can sometimes even surprise oneself. The modification of the image into something extraordinary and relevant to your title is the key here.
Text is merely no text at all
The ability to weave meaning into simple texts can make your life extremely laudable as a book cover designing services provider. You can always make the title so intriguing and interesting by altering the way they are normally perceived by people. It may take some time for you to get the hang of it while designing but being a creative person, you can ultimately nail it at the end for sure.
Typography of the title
There are many weird fonts that you would never use but sometimes, there can be nothing better than a particular one to express the title in the best possible fashion. Based on the idea that the title is trying to convey, the type of the font can impact how people associate font and the title. This is a tough job to do, but pulling it off intelligent is definitely worth the efforts.
The rule of no-rule
When it comes to designing of book covers,there really is no rule. If you are able to use bizarre elements to connect the title and the cover design, that paves way for afascinating and compelling page.
Patterns and no patterns
If you are unable to get anything of the above sorts, try good patterns or a random pattern. The only problem with this is that it can be uninteresting if not taken good care of. Surprisingly, patterns that are minimalistic and subtle can be arresting in their own ways.
