The Bizness: Working With A Graphic Designer

The graphic designer plays a very important role in the success of a book. Many people say don’t judge a book by its cover, but the truth is that a book cover can make or break your sales.  Today, I want to introduce you to a graphic designer that I highly recommend for her integrity and professionalism and give you a few tips to use when working with a designer.

Tips from DC Bookdiva

  1. When considering a graphic designer, always ask for a reference.
  2. Be sure the designer provides you with the master file for your works. The master file is the original file that your cover was created in, not just the jpg file for your works. If the file was created in photo shop, get that file sent to you. You own this file once you have paid for it. It is important to have this file in case you have updates later during the life span of your book and need to make changes to it.
  3. Make sure the designer use images that are royalty free and also used with permission from the photographer and or model. It is the responsibility of the designer to keep all releases on file if any issues arrive.
