Jenn holding spot for Grace Burrowes Case Study

CASE STUDY Book Cover Design : THE CHALLENGE :

To design covers to match the existing cover style so that readers saw the clear connection of the series, but without violating the publisher’s copyright. The last three books in Grace’s Lonely Lords series were self-published. Books three through nine had established a consistent cover style, and the final three needed to follow closely, but not too closely. How fine is that line?

OUR SOLUTION :

 

 

 

Cover Design : THE (not-so-challeging) CHALLENGE :

To create new products built within an existing aesthetic.

THE TWIST : “I am so sorry, but I need it tomorrow.”

Using existing visual website elements and book cover titling (see above), we came close, but the aspect ratio was too similar to an eBook Boxed Set to be the distinguishing element that would identify it as audio, especially at thumbnail size.

OUR SOLUTION :

 

  

If we had been lucky, we would have nailed the cameo first (we didn’t), and one of our first few flower insets would have worked (they didn’t). But the covers were ready on time.
