Cover Design for a book about being an Entrepreneur.
The contest holder had an idea in mind regarding the style and visuals they wanted for the cover. I tried to come up with a concept that was modern, but not a typical business-style layout. I was looking for the fresh approach. I found imagery that related to the restaurant in question and was able to blend together the idea into a design that was uncluttered and direct.
Book cover for "Brother You Are Not The Devil"

Book cover for "Fragments"
Artsy cover concept for a memoir about nursing
I am very interested in this book as I have also been a Registered Nurse for many years! I wanted it to not look like a "business book", so to speak; to look more INTERESTING and intriguing. This very artistic cover accomplishes that. This design is available and unused if you'd like to see it adapted for your book.

Requested: "eye catching book cover for a introverted self help coach"
This cover illustrates in a very graphic way two things; how it feels behind a wall looking to come into a country, and how it feels as an introvert; as you often feel like you are looking on at others. The effect is stark and dramatic. This design is available and unused if you'd like to see it adapted (with a different person behind the wall) for your book. Save yourself the contest fees; shoot me a message and we'll open up a 1:1!

Railway to the front
Journal from a WW1 Soldier
Growing up with RC book cover
Nostalgic cover of a story about growing up with a father who is a great theologian and being surrounded by books and learning. Cover uses a casual image of a young boy in rolled up jeans, with a Bible in his lap and sitting on a foundation of many books. Blurry and textured images give the feeling of the past.
Little Big steps book cover
This cover is a biographical inspirational story. The idea expressed in the title of Little Big Steps is illustrated in the photograph of a hand holding a stack of photographs. These photos represent the "steps" or little accomplishments along the journey that have added up to the inspirational confident person that is in the top photo. The title is in contrasting thick and thin fonts, with the thin being sophisticated and geometric, the thick font on big as a little rough edge and is in a teal taken from the background of the photograph.
Soulcation: Design a Life You Don't Need a Vacation From
Design a book cover for a self-help-meets-memoir book
In my book, I want to share my journey from a gnome to a goliath. Each chapter starts with a real-life case study of a successful person, whom I have used as an influencer. Then, I share a personal narrative illustrating a stage in my journey and how I approached it. Finally, I distill my success into several tips per section, usually tapping the wisdom of other books, people, or experience and I define the pillars for self-organizing life. I also have a cheat card with the most important take-aways at the end which readers can tear and put somewhere for inspiration (or snap with their phones and get back to it if needed).
The Orphan King
A book about a boy's time spent growing up in an orphanage
Of operas, bombs, school and love: An adolescence in Hamburg 1943-1949
Book cover for Goebbels.
The client wanted a cover for a book about the World War II and the history of the Holocaust. So I used a series of Public Domain images to create a composite image. I used simple, classic fonts because they fit the style and time period without looking retro or dated.
My Sweet Lady
Biography Book Cover
Create an intelligent, thought provoking cover for my new book, "First Train Out of Denver"
At the surface this is a true story about a former army ranger medic who saw heavy combat in Iraq and Afghanistan selling everything he owns and traveling the world (28 countries on 5 continents). The journey begins with him stowing away on and old coal train. There is parallel character analogy being told of the story of Icarus (The kid who flew too close to the sun on makeshift wings, they melted and he fell into the sea and drown) The protagonist struggles with isolation and alcoholism, while attempting to find his place in the world. This work has the free spirited travel element of Kerouac's "On the Road" mixed with similar isolation and minimalist philosophies of Thoreau's "Walden" written in the style of my last book, "On Assimilation" (which deals entirely with the issues veterans face when they return from combat)
Typographic cover design for an inspiring memoir
The author of TSB suffered a serious sporting accident which left him a paraplegic. The book relates his long journey to recovery and his challenges and observations along the way. I chose to make the cover design primarily typographic as I wanted to highlight the unique and very personal title given to the book, and bring it to life visually. The crutches and boots refer to the author's accident and eventual return to his feet, while the lemon was added into the subtitle, and as an image, to help convey the author's sense of humour. Neutral greys are contrasted with bright yellows in order to suggest the seriousness of the subject matter on the one hand, whilst emphasising the 'sunny', often very positive tone, taken by the author on the other. This is a cover that would stand out on the book shelves and intrigue potential buyers.
The Red Lollipop - Biography Book cover design
Biography book cover design with a minimal design.
Non-fiction. From the brief: "Book description: She was married to a stranger for 21 years, then betrayal and divorce offered an exciting do-over. Target audience: 75 percent women, 25 percent men. Ages 30-55. Married and/or divorced. Primarily college educated Caucasians living in urban and suburban areas who've been hurt in intimate relationships. Mood: provocative, fiery, playful. Imagery having to do with a happy response to being betrayed...
Little Big Steps
Little Big Steps is the story of the pivotal moments, interactions, and breakthroughs following the injury that turned the author's life upside down. Each chapter explores the experiences, challenges, and discoveries that have inspired him to work towards those accomplishments he was told were impossible. There are moments of immense frustration and grief, and moments of surreal hilariousness and unparalleled joy as he remain on the path to get back on his feet. The story culminates with proof that motivation, determination, and unwavering commitment can lead to incredible achievements.
Life's Great Adventure
My initial idea was a lot different than this one. Although the client liked my initial design however he wanted a design which contains a desert and a mountain. It's a pretty simple design with modern typography and creative use of images made this design very pleasant to look at. Great collaboration is always the key and CH was very keen on making this design as perfect as it can be. Here is the full cover http://bit.ly/2w5HHRJ

Book cover idea for EL LUIYI
Man with big dreams. Dreams are leading the way in the life. Falling star we see is the luck in your life and then dreams come true.
Based on a true story Charles Levine was a real person. In this historical novel, as an old man of 94 years of age, he tells his 11 year old granddaughter the story of his life. He claims to be a successful businessman, a record breaking aviatior, and a hero--helping Jewish refugees escape Nazi Germany during WW2. His tales include associations with Babe Ruth, Amelia Earhart, Eleanor Roosevelt and Bill Donovan. His chief antagonist is Charles Lindbergh, who is portrayed as an evil Nazi sympathizer. There is doubt whether his stories and associations are true or just the musings of a vivid imagination.

Biography Template Ideas
Write a biography.
Who needs fiction, when real events can be just as fascinating – if not more? Whether you have a life story worth telling, or it’s that of a friend, acquaintance, or even a historical figure, biographies remain popular for a reason: people love hearing about (and getting inspired by) each other. This biography layout gives you the design specifications we think work particularly well for biographies.
This exclusive template doesn’t cut any corners. It will make a regal impression, with the downside of being expensive to produce and ship.
Cover Type: Hardcover
Size: 6.97 x 10″, paper type: white, finish: matte, colour interior: full colour, professional.
A respectable, no-nonsense template. More portable than a hardcover, whilst the larger-than-average size still makes it an imposing presence on the shelf.
Cover Type: Paperback
Size: 6.97 x 9.45″.
A template designed to strike the perfect balance between portability and readability, whilst minimizing shipping costs and maximizing your profit margins.
Size: 6.10 x 9.25″
Colour interior: b/w, biography cover ideas.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a biography without the subject’s face on the cover. It just makes sense – interested readers can see exactly who the book is about without having to read anything, and people who aren’t looking for a biography might get interested if someone they recognize is on the cover.
So, the face of your subject is probably a good choice for your cover. While that does limit your options compared to other genres, you can still express the style of your biography by how your present your subject. Below, you’ll find some ideas that you can emulate or build on. You can recreate all of these covers using our cover designer.
The Bold One
A stark, black and white close-up is a classic biography look. It tends to give books a clean, professional, and impressive look when pulled off right.
The close-up portrait combined with the centered text and a title in a contrasting colour provides an “in your face” look. Make sure you use a high quality image with an intense facial expression to add that extra gravitas to your subject.
The Confident One
For a less dramatic cover, try finding a picture of your subject that’s a bit more zoomed out, and where they’re sitting, leaning or standing casually. Going for a colour photo is also sure to make a more nuanced first impression.
If you’re planning on placing your title off-centre, make sure that you balance the text on your cover with the images, like we’ve done in this example.
The Minimalist One
Maybe your biography subject isn’t readily recognisable, or perhaps you really want to avoid using their picture. Maybe, their words are far more familiar to the average person than their faces, or it’s not one person you’re writing about, but many?
In that case, you can always opt for a minimalist cover with the text as the focus. This can be done in many different ways, but keep in mind that you want a really captivating title.

Biography Book Cover Template
Biographies can be incredibly personal and expressive, especially if they're written by the subject themselves. That's why it's important to design a book cover that is representative of not just the material inside but also of the person that it will be describing. Our Biography book cover template is the perfect starting point for a succinct yet personal biography cover thanks to the large space on the cover that can be used for a photograph of the subject. It's flanked by both the biography title and an explanation of what the book is, utilizing very simple and clean fonts with a consistent color scheme. The summary itself also contains a title and a clean white box that can be used to contain the text itself.
