Several authors approached us to create ebook cover designs for their books that would be used on Amazon’s Kindle app. We had to ensure that the designs represented the book’s subject and content and looked good on tablets and smartphones.
The design process had several stages:
- Research and Planning: We started by asking the authors many questions about their ebook’s content, such as:
- What are some keywords that represent the content?
- What is the book’s
What are some things that the book challenges?
- What is the mood of the book?
- Sketches and Concepts: Based on the information we gathered in the first stage, we came up with a number of rough sketches and ideas. These ideas were presented to the clients, and after receiving feedback, we revised the illustrations, this time in Photoshop.
- Design Presentation: We presented the product as if it were finished, but still open to one more final round of revisions. This allowed the clients to get a better sense of how the final product would look like.
- Final Signoff and Tweaks: We obtained signoff from the client to get their approval before making final tweaks. Once we made the final tweaks, we sent the image off to the client(s), who then included and submitted the cover designs of their book accordingly.
Overall, our ebook cover design process was collaborative and focused on delivering a high-quality product that accurately represented the content of the book.
