Julie Hopkins || Graphic Designer + Authorpreneur
My knowledge of book design comes from a background in photography and design, a marketing degree from Columbia College Chicago, and the many, many hours experimenting with photoshop.
After college (and some random travels in California and Alaska), I starting working at a traditional independent publishing company in Asheville, North Carolina.
Being there and seeing books at all different stages of their publishing journey, from a pile of pages to a glossy masterpiece ready to hit the shelves, has taught me one important lesson. Never underestimate the power of a standout book cover.
"Never underestimate the power of a standout book cover."
An eye-catching, professional book cover has a direct effect on that book's sales. I've seen it over and over. Yes, the rumors are true; People do judge a book by its cover. As a writer myself, I understand the importance of getting your book cover exactly the way you want it. I will work with you to find the essence of your story and turn it into a thrilling, beautiful or humorous visual design that will grab the attention of your readers.
