These 5 tips will help you design a book cover that will seduce the retinas of your readers and increase your book downloads before you know it.
1. Pick a Colour Combination and Work With It
Use cool colours for your cover design. Avoid a mix of bright colours because if we wanted to see a rainbow, we’ll look at the sky. Shouty colours are distracting and can be irritating to look at. Use at least 2 calm colours. You could also opt for a plain colour as seen on the cover of Dating Inteligently. 😊
2. Implement Your Book’s Theme In The Visuals
Images contribute to outstanding cover designs, but you need to be careful of your selection. You can use graphic images, arts and anything that relates to your book’s core message. For instance, Adult books use explicit images of a couple. This aspect of a cover design is where your creativity is tested. Have fun with it, but remember to represent your book’s theme. Here’s an example:
3. Align Your Book Title Properly

Emboldened? Italicized? Whatever style you choose, just ensure that it fits and doesn’t ruin the design.

5. Have a Trademark and Stick With It

You don’t have to put “Yeah ya!” on your book covers; just have something unique about them and adopt it as your design style. It could be the font style, text colour or a graphic design. Whatever it is, ensure that it’s something significant enough to make your books recognizable by readers, so that when they see it, they’ll know it’s yours. Here‘s an example:
