Book cover type
A beautifully crafted, creative, and subtle design with 'hints' of Africa (e.g. kente, ankara design, etc. We do not however want for this 'African' design to be too elaborate such that it becomes the centre or focus of the cover). We want a creative design that shows depth in its portrayal of cheerful lightness and ominous darkness to capture the happiness and pain that love promises. Also, hopefully, a cover that fits the genre of the book: creative literary fiction.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
It all began with a design brief.
