As a Graphic Artist, I think it is important for the cover to enhance the book. It should entice the reader to stop and have a look. The potential reader may decide in as little as a second whether the book suits his or her taste and if it is worth exploring the content. In the ever growing world of digital publishing, it is important for the cover to stand out in the vast array of books especially in thumbnail size.
It is equally imperative to pay attention to the Author’s vision. I have had the pleasure of working with many talented Authors. It is my goal to design a cover that is worthy of the words it represents.
