Hi everyone! We hope that you are having a great time reading our blogs and that you are super excited to check out what we are about to share with you all today especially if you are a book reader who takes book reading very seriously, an author yourself or are about to have your own book published or if you are someone who has just got assigned a task to design a hardcover book title for one of your clients and you are waiting for us to share all the things that you need to know in order to make the most perfect designs. We are excited to share them with you too but before doing that, we would like to take a moment to thank you all for the love and support that you send our way and for always encouraging us to keep creating the stuff that we love to create.
We’re sure that you guys must have heard this quote several times in your life “don’t judge a book by its cover”, right? said for things and people and the meaning of it is that appearances can be deceptive and to know the actual value of something or someone, you have to get to know it / them in actuality. So, if we apply that quote when we are making book covers then we can also make the designs thoughtful too but not something that gives it all away from the cover only and the fun and curiosity are not there when the person will get to the reading part.
Now, you must be thinking about how to design a cover that does not give it all away but also keeps the element of curiosity alive. Allow us to share how you can do that:
You need to know the contents of the book in order to show some elements of it through its hardcover book title. You can take your time to read the book if the author shares the content pieces with you or you can get a summary from them and can also have conversations with them to find out what they have in mind. By doing so, you won’t be the only person with all your creative juices flowing but you will have someone who literally wrote the book and no one can better create a hook from the content than the author themself.

You can also work on outlining the themes of the book in order to think along the same lines rather than letting your creative juices flow everywhere. While you are at it, we would also like you guys to make sure that you document all the ideas that come to your mind and keep revisiting them whenever you have to because you never know what can come out of that too, right? Sometimes, an idea that you thought did not have enough power might strike you to create something out of it, that too in a way that you could have never imagined.
In the next step, you need to analyze how you can incorporate the genre of the story into the design of the book, etc. For example; when it comes to fiction, you have an open ground to play on and we can bet that you will not hold back from designing super unique hardcover book titles by thinking of things not everyone can think of. The same goes for the genre mystery as you can literally be as mysterious as you would want to be and will end up creating something so great that you will forever be proud of the outcome. So, make sure that you guys are open to your own ideas too when you sit down and design the book titles for your next big project. Make the most of the visuals but use them in order so that it all makes sense. Lastly, make your title stand out by using appropriate fonts and colors.
That’s all for today! We hope that you not only had a great time reading the blog but that you are also excited to work on some amazing hardcover book titles for your upcoming projects. We would love to encourage you guys to share the blog with your graphic designer friends, favorite colleagues and students, etc. as well so that they can also work on a couple of exciting designs for their personal and commercial clients.
