Book Cover Designer
A Book cover designer play an important role in the production of both fiction and non-fiction books. A professional book cover designer will frequently do the following.
A Book Cover Designer works to oversee all the elements of the design process and create a cover image appropriate to the genre of the book. This process can include the design and typography of the artwork and working to determining the fonts and images that appear on the front and back covers, spine and, where necessary, the inner flaps of the book.
The cover should be 100% appropriate for the genre of the book and work to create shelf appeal and, ultimately, book sales.
We all know what a romance novel looks like, for example. Potential readers of a romance novel expect a certain look to their book covers while readers of a self help book are much more likely to favor a different tack and a totally different book cover design.
