So I’ve been thinking about this for awhile and I’m going to finally put myself out there.
I’ve done a couple of my own book covers, and even though I’ll continue to do my book covers for my future works, I’d really like to get into doing book covers for others.
I have over 15 years of freelance and professional graphic design experience. Currently I work full time as a UIUX (user experience user interface) designer for an IT company. I still use Photoshop extensively for most of my projects. I use stock imagery sites for all the photos, as well as commercial free brushes and textures. I create my own textures and backgrounds as well. I am very meticulous with fonts, and I keep up with the most readable, trendiest, and readable font type faces in the market. I use Photoshop, Illustrator and Autodesk Sketchbook as my software tools.
Professional work aside, I’m knowledgeable in formatting needed for Amazon and CreateSpace, and can adapt to any other specifications with ease.
Here are my book covers for my own books:
Here is my behance portfolio if you want to see more of my professional work.
For the first run of book covers, most likely through the year I’m offering a flat affordable price to get some great covers in my portfolio. If this is something you’ll be interested in, please drop me an email at email@example.com.
Awesome! I’ve been thinking about getting into this myself, because I really enjoy designing book covers. It’s probably my favorite thing to do graphically right now. But my doors are still closed to freelancing for now, so I’ll keep your info for anyone looking for a cover 🙂
Btw, how do you like behance? I’ve been building a profile on odesk, but I don’t like that it restricts you to one type of work. It seems like behance gives you more freedom to advertise all your skills, even if they cross mediums. At the same time, I know odesk, fiverr, and elance are the most well-known platforms to actually find work, so I’m wondering what the work potential at behance is like.
You should! I think with all the indie authors out there there’s a real demand for it, and you have some great graphic skills too.
So far I like behance just because I haven’t had a chance to update my website yet. So it’s good to share to others to show my work. And yes it does give me a good chance to show all my skills. I also like that it pops up high in google search in case people google me.
I link from behance to my odesk profile as well as my linked in profile, so I think that helps. Plus behance is pretty well known so people don’t mind clicking the link. You should check it out!
You rock! (Other account because I can’t be bothered to log out and back in XD)
