Writing Your First Novel

Print and Ebook Cover Design

Client: John Reynolds

Location: New Zealand

Outputs: Book cover for both print and ebook formats.

I was tasked with designing a fresh cover for John Reynolds’ e-book “Writing Your First Novel.” I brainstormed two unique concepts that utilised the same core idea, but with varying aesthetics. In order to come up with the designs, I sought inspiration from the book’s content and decided to incorporate quotes from the text into the cover. Later on, when the book was also produced in print format, I also designed the back cover. The final product effectively represented the content of the book while also standing out on digital and physical shelves alike.

The author selected the design that he felt best encapsulated the essence of the book.
