Default Excellent Cover Designer


As everybody is probably aware, I'm an abrasive, irascible curmudgeon who rarely has a good word to say about anyone.

Therefore when I make a recommendation, it's because somebody has made an impression.

One of my clients recently had a book cover designed by this guy - www.damonza.com - and, having looked over his portfolio, he's f***ing talented. He also has a fast turn-around and a money back guarantee.

If you're self publishing, give this guy a look.

Those are nice cover designs. I have no idea how he comes up with them so easily and quickly.

It's a shame they're all photographic though. I'm very much a fan of painted book covers and always feel slightly disapointed (ech, I'm feeling spellingly challenged today so I'm leaving out all the possible extra letters in that word) when I get one with a photo cover.

But thats personal taste and doesn't take away from the work that guy does and the talent he clearly has. Good stuff.

P.S. I always knew that curmudgeon thing was a front, and you're really just a big softy underneath.

They're photo based because that's how you come up with quick artwork.

Paint takes time.

PS, that project we discussed is still ongoing, I'll be in touch.

I should also note that if you want an excellent artist to design your book cover, Candrah is your go-to gal.

Wow, thanks Mike! Though, I'm no designer. I don't know anything about fonts or text placement or any of that complicated stuff - strictly art for me.

People would probably do best to take that side of it to that Damonza guy. And yeah, makes sense about the photo covers. He must be using stock images too to get them done so fast.

PS, that project we discussed is still ongoing, I'll be in touch.
Coolio. I'll keep an eager eye out for you in my inbox.

Personally, I am fond of great ebook covers. The move to e-books has brought with it a new challenge for those who do book cover design, amateur and professional. But I still believe that simplicity is one of the chief virtues of successful e-book cover design.
