Creating the cover of a novel takes a lot of care and attention.
As a graphic designer, my role is to understand what the text is about, to feel what the author wants and to give a result that is both faithful and satisfying. Book covers are often complex creations, not in their technique, but in their composition which combines an image, a text and a layout which corresponds to very precise standards and codes.
A novel is a product that sells and its cover therefore plays a major role!
You don't judge a book by its cover, they say.
Perhaps, but it is a very rare thing all the same!
And, well, a beautiful book always pleases (the reader and the author)!
In my work for the publishing house Beta Publisher ,
I got down to the creation of covers in all genres:
from the SFFF, to the thriller without forgetting the young adult or the romance.
A multiplicity of styles and personality of authors which allowed me to diversify my line and my understanding of the different expectations of each one.
