Your goal number one might be to produce beautiful work; a cover that conveys the message and clean typography every turn of a page. Your education, experience, and intuition will guide you there. My role is to use my experience to guide you behind the scenes to make your technical workflow and files beautiful as well. While created with lots of detail each step of the way, my courses are intended for experienced designers.
BOOK COVER DESIGNERS | This is all about pushing the pause button in a busy schedule and setting yourself up for success. Create a template framework that you can use for nearly any book cover project (including dust jackets!) all from one file. Make printer export presets to make your process easier and organize your printer specifications. We’ll walk through these things and more in a module-based online course that you can work through at your own pace. Adobe InDesign is the flagship here, but Photoshop and Illustrator versions are available as well. Visit the course detail page here.
