Concept. Composition. Contrast.

Concept: Your book cover should have distinct meaning that is quickly understood by the viewer.

Composition: The text and visuals that make up your book cover design should have dynamic relationships and balanced placement.

Contrast: Legibility should not be an issue and design elements should be easily discernible from one another with use of color and texture.

I focus on these fundamental principles to make sure you book cover is a success.
