RockingBookCovers.com was created to improve book cover design standards for those who don’t have one of Big 5 Publisher company behind them, doesn’t matter if you’re Self-Published author, Hybrid-Published or are a Indie Publisher etc. A lot of book covers have been stale and boring and I think they should be in the same level as multi-million dollar budget Movie Posters. If not better! 😉 And while book cover quality has improved a lot, there are still lots of ugly covers. I hope RBC will hopefully play a part in making things better.
I want to take your ideas, my vision and make something that is different and better than the competition. My job is to come up with the best possible cover design. I will suggest ideas and tips, explain design principles if some of the author’s ideas won’t be feasible, but I won’t override your final decision (I may make an additional design to show how it would work better). So the final decision is on the author.
Making a gorgeous book cover is a collaboration and little bit of a ‘dance’ between author’s vision and designer’s skill and insight. With effective and frequent communication the result can be great! It’s not super easy, but it’s worth it!
I’m Adrijus and I’m a big reading, creativity, business, and music fan. I love all things Creative and working with Adobe Photoshop. I’ve been in a book cover designer for over 6 years and I’m now expanding into author website designs. It started off as a passion working on my own at home, making desktop wallpapers about basketball. But in 2012 after failing a business and getting fired from the day job (both at the same time) I was at the crossroads… look for another soul-sucking job… I decided to become a freelance designer instead (something I’ve always wanted) and focused on Book Cover Design and working with Authors. In 2018, my personal goal is to make RBC into the world’s best book cover design resource for authors. Just like Authors, I want to live off of my creative passion and make a dent in the Universe(and hopefully make a big one!).
