Newest Trends in 3d Ebook Cover Design

3D ebook cover designs have been drastically changing since the beginning of 2017. They are basically the artistic visual part of the book that are making the potential buyers purchase a particular ebook. The design of the cover should always be some sort of an image that will guide you through the story that awaits inside of the ebook “pages”.

Its importance is quite huge, because each visual element of it can alter your personal impression in a totally different direction after seeing the cover design of a specific ebook.  In 2017, we have seen a couple of new alterations and changes in the way of designing covers.

Graphic designers such as Oliver Munday started creating more and more minimalistic designs, where they use strong and quite bold colors, a collage of images In very unique and unconventional method and quirky typography. The minimalistic approach is not truly about a lot of decoration. Instead, it is more focused on processing a story for the potential reader through one specific and minimalistic image.

Another trend that has become more popular amongst graphic designers this year is the illustrative way of creating an ebook cover. Ebook cover that look like illustrative art have become quite popular these days, especially ebook covers with animals on them.

The designers who create these type of covers generally use pastel colors or different shades of one color and make it look like they have been drawing it by hand. The illustrative approach makes the cover hit closer to home, and will make you feel like you are reading a book in your hands, not a book on your tablet, reader or laptop.

Illustrators from the USA have also started implementing more comic book designs into the latest ebook covers. This style is quite specific and very hard to pass by, because of its representative colors and edge and plus, it truly cannot be connected to any kind of book. It is a style that is very successful in different art and design movements, and it has finally started to become popular among graphic designers who create ebook covers.

It is a very old-fashioned yet intriguing approach to art that will definitely be approved and thus, accepted by a lot of potential ebook readers in the years ahead of us. It is vibrant yet very bold, and in most cases, artists use a lot of different colors and concepts when they create comic-look alike graphic design. 

Another interesting new trend among illustrators and graphic designers this year is folk art. Folk art generally represents more conservative topics which are happening in the past, and thus, it is perfect for ebooks that are based on a story from past times.

It is a very classic type of design that is generally accepted by all generations, and plus, it has a very nostalgic and melancholic touch that makes a lot of people think about past events or their native countries etc.

 Beautiful eBook Cover Trends for 2017

 Beautiful eBook Cover Trends for 2017

There is a whole bunch of ebook cover trends for 2017 that can serve as an inspiration for young writers and graphic designers. As every writer should know before publishing an ebook, the cover should always serve as a hint for the reader. Art should represent the written words – the difficulties and hidden sorrows in the book, or the bubbly and sunny comedic writings that await for potential readers.

After all, you cannot really use dark colors for a romantic novel, just as you cannot put rainbows on the cover of a sci-fi novel. There are hundreds of designers out there that know how to help you find the perfect cover (or should we refer to it as art?) for your newly published ebook. 

If you want it to be successful, always go for the best designers, because you do not really want your book to fail just because the art that you have personally picked didn’t really look good to your potential fans? If you are about to publish your new ebook and you need to get inspired, get inspired by the artists and themes we have picked for you.

We have created a small list with the most popular cover trends for 2017. There are interesting designs that truly vary in color and style. Finding a truly terrific design that is executed by and expert at the same time can be tiring these days. One thing every young aspiring author must have in mind is that the cover needs to somehow show what is inside of the book and thus, accentuate the writing topic.

The first thing we have noticed is that classic typography is back in the game. If your book is somewhat more academic, then classic typography and an original and serious old artwork are the perfect option for you.

If you have written a fiction novel, then get inspired by Albaugh’s book “Grim Nora and the Secret of the Skull”. It is a simple yet effective cover that basically has the main theme as the perfect layout, a pocket watch that is shaped as a skull. The cover is dark, just like the book that awaits for the reader.

Another inspiring ebook cover was the “Into the Air” cover created by Aimee Downing. This picture truly shows two different worlds that oppose in the book.

It manages to show the underground surroundings. and the above-ground society. The letter font is perfect and the colors are subtle yet effective. A beautiful and simple monochrome green and blue palette somehow manages to speak to the reader quite effectively.

Another trend that we have noticed this year are the simple elements and symbols that are quite popular among contemporary fantasy writers. We have analyzed Alexandra Brandt’s design of “A simple love story”, an ebook cover containing the moon and a magnolia tree, in which the moon has Celtic knots. These elements serve as hints for the story that awaits for the reader. The colors might be a bit too plain for a fantasy novel, though.

Even though this ebook cover has been voted as one of the best for this year, we’d go with different colors, maybe something pastel, but definitely not blue and pale orange blended into one cover.
