This month, Michelle Argyle at Melissa Williams Design reimagines the cover of Hundred Percent Chance by Robert K. Brown. The author praised the “warmth and humanity” of the new cover. To submit a book for a free cover redesign, email us at email@example.com.
Design Note #1: While the original cover is moody in a fantastic way, I felt choosing an image with more color could give this memoir more visibility.
Design Note #2: Including an image with a person humanizes the cover in an essential way.
Design Note #3: Tiny details can do a lot for a cover. Including the pulse lines around “a memoir” tells the reader immediately that this is probably a story revolving around life and death.
Design Note #4: I really liked the typography on the original cover and ultimately decided to stick with a similar sans-serif font for the title.
