Author Resource: 15 Great Cover Designers

Reblogged from IndieReader.com

~

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but of course it’s something that we all do; your book’s cover makes the first impression for the reader, so an attractive cover essential. But finding the right designer for your book cover can be difficult for an indie author, since cover design is usually a responsibility that (traditional) publishers fulfill. We’ve featured some kick-ass covers over the years, but how can you get one for your own book?
There are a lot of artists, designers and services to employ for designing your dream cover. First, there are services that offer pre-made covers such as Covertopia or Cover My Book, which can be affordable options though more aesthetically generic. Meanwhile, services like 99Designs or Bibliocrunch play matchmaker to pair authors with the designers perfect for their book.
Another great approach is to reach out to a professional designer whose work you enjoy. Here are 15 great designers who are happy to work with authors to create amazing covers. If someone’s work seems to jive with yours, drop them a line!
