Ebook cover designs are as important as the words written after you start reading. They should be legible and should always be full and in HD size in order to make everyone interested in buying a particular ebook. Even though you might not be a graphic designer, you can still create a fantastic ebook cover if you have enough inspiration for it.
There are some styles which are into fashion right now – for example the contemporary and asymmetrical style of creating book covers. That style never goes out of fashion we assume, according to the fact that is very simple but it can also be very effective. You can only use an image and that image should be fulfilling the entire cover of the book.
After that, decide some area of the cover where you will place the book’s title. The overlay should be grey colored and by that you will get that most-wanted minimalistic yet quirky effect. Always opt for simple and more pastel colors. Do not go with something too strong because the effect will not be the same.
Another interesting thing that you can try if you need some inspiration for a great do it yourself ebook cover is monochromatic cover design. Use some different shades of one particular color or opt for black and white. That effect is always noticeable and makes people want to find out more about the story.
Another interesting inspiration for an effective ebook cover would be the vintage patterns. Vintage patterns are another thing that simply never goes out of style. All you need to do is try and find some vintage design that will not be cliché or over used and make a combination out of it. The colors which are in this year are usually pastel colors – purple, grey and brown subtle shades which are not too overwhelming. Reviewing old CD covers can also be very helpful and inspirational if you are trying to find the perfect graphic design for your ebook.
Old CD covers can usually help you find out what you want to include on your ebook cover. The most important thing would be not to go far away from the story that is inside of the book. The cover should serve as a representation of the story and that is why finding an appropriate cover is very important. If you need some genuine inspiration, look at old CD covers from the 90’s and vinyl covers from the 60’s and 70’s.
Sometimes, these retro images can help you create a mental image in your head and reach out for something more inspirational and innovative. Vintage never goes out of style so it seems the most appropriate style for new and aspiring beginners and writers of ebooks and stories.
All you need to do is look around for a design that has not been previously overused by other writers and graphic designers, because that will seem like way too non-inspirational, bland and boring.
