Every month, Joel Friedlander, aka The Book Designer, invites authors to submit their books for his “Ebook Cover Design Award“. And every month, IndieReader is happy to share the news.
And this month’s winners are…
Christopher Geoffrey McPherson submitted Sarah & Gerald designed by Matt Hinrichs.
Sarah & Geraldis a novel about a different kind of romance in Paris in the 1920s. It sports another fantastic cover by designer Matt Hinrichs who did the illustrations and design work.”
JF: I love the designer’s audacity in putting together these patterns and somehow creating an effect in which it all make sense. Both the illustrations and the typography allude to the period in which the book is set, and just for fun notice the “curvature” of the book at the “spine,” alluding to a physical book. Charming and adept.
Kit Foster submitted The Tao of Dating designed by Kit Foster.
JF: Here Kit Foster brings some of the same elements of design from fiction covers to this dynamic nonfiction book. Strong typography, interesting textures, outstanding legibility and active colors make this a real winner.
More: Also check out covers this month from Damonza, Darko Tomic, Heather Howland, Jeroen ten Berge, and Jake Clark for more outstanding design work.
