Every month, Joel Friedlander, aka The Book Designer, invites authors to submit their books for his “Ebook Cover Design Award“. The guest judge this month is Tamara Dever and her crew at TLC Graphics.
And the winners are…
TLC: This month’s winner is “Afterlife” by Eric Edstrom, designed by Melvin De Voor. It’s simply stunning, full of depth, great use of typography, and very unique. The use of color, type, texture, and imagery are all very well done. The design would work well if this were a series, too. Close runners-up are “Crash” and “Relatively Famous.” This was a difficult decision and we’d be proud to put our names on any of these covers.
TLC: The non-fiction winner is “A Father’s Angels” by John Waldron,” design by Damonza. We wouldn’t change a thing! Nice, clean cover. Simple type treatments and intriguing imagery work well to attract readers without giving away the whole story within. Beautiful. Our other favorites are “In My Enemy’s Service,” “The Wild Merchant,” and “Out of Sync.”
