What all makes a good
book cover?

A properly-designed book cover should include its title in bold, dominant fonts, the author’s name, and a graphical representation of the story, which can either be an image or a painting. It should have a particular theme, a careful amalgamation of colors, backgrounds, typefaces, and white spaces. While the title and author’s name are the dominant texts on the cover, one may also include taglines or short descriptions without cluttering the space. Last but not least, the publisher’s name and logo should also be displayed on the book cover.

Why do I need a professionally-designed book cover?

In the materialistic world of today, people tend to judge every book by its cover, in the literal sense. The more attractive the cover of your book, the better will be its chances of getting sold. However, the cover should be on par with the entire theme of the book to prevent misleading the readers. A professionally-designed cover will also spark interest among the readers by invoking mystery. At the back of the cover, you may include an excerpt of the book to hint at the mystery element further.

Question? Check our FAQ

A design contest is a contest between designers to create the winning design for your creative brief. After you’ll write a creative brief (which we will help you with), you’ll pay, start your contest and designers will decide to participate and submit their design(s). Designers can’t see each others’ submissions.
You’ll give feedback to submitted designs and select up to 3 finalists. The finalists then update their designs and compete to win. You’ll pick a winner and receive the design files as well as full copyright to the winning design.
With most logo design projects, we see that the client starts to receive the first designs within 24 hours.
The duration of the project depends a little on how quickly you decide which designs you select. The maximum duration of a project for each stage is: Selecting 3 Finalist designs – max 10 days; Selecting the Winning Design – max 5 days; Receiving final design files – max 3 days. On average, however, we notice that most projects are completely finalized within 12 days.
Yes! We believe we can serve both clients and designers best when we only work with top quality designers. We vet designer work before we allow a designer to join a contest. Designers have to show their previous work, and our vetting committee, comprising of industry experts, reviews each of these portfolios. On average, just 5% of applicants make the cut.
Yes! Actually, you are encouraged to do so. You will have a direct chat with all logo designers working on your project. You will be able to ask them to make changes & ask questions in general. Not sure how to give great feedback? Read our article here.
There is no set limit to the amount of feedback or the number of changes you can ask for, as long as there is enough time on your project. You can communicate directly with the different designers & tweak your album cover to the point you are loving it.
We are a global platform & only allow the best 5% of all designer applicants to join DesignBro. Currently we see most clusters of our designers in Europe and The Americas. All designers speak a professional, if not native, level of English- but most importantly they are experts in design.
You will own 100% of the winning design. All copyrights are yours. Over any stock imagery, icons or fonts or other (free or paid) materials that have been used copyright cannot be transferred.
You will be delivered all the agency standards for you will get the ‘open’, ‘editable’ .ai or .eps files, as well as jpg and png for direct use. If you need anything specific, don’t hesitate to ask your designer.
Yes! for just $35 you can get a ‘standard NDA’ (non disclosure agreement) on your logo project. You can select this while you start the project, just before you pay. This means the designers will have to agree to the terms before they are able to see your project.
