I am ivan and i design book covers

Let’s face it: we all judge a book by its cover, so, too often, one quick glance is all the time you get to make an impression.
Even though you spent countless hours working on your book and you chiseled out each word with endless patience,
five seconds is all the time you have to grab a reader's attention.
That’s why I promise I’ll design the cover you always dreamed of, to give your book the look it deserves.
I have over twenty years of experience in the design industry and I know how to design a cover that stands-out.

The design process

This is my workflow, you can read the FAQ page for more information or shoot me an e-mail for clarifications.


Choose the package from the list below: a premade cover, a custom cover or an illustrated cover.


Fill out the cover brief. Then you'll be required to pay a deposit, for custom and illustrated covers, or full payment for premade covers.


I get in touch with you to discuss about your and my ideas, until we find the perfect concept for your cover.


Let the magic begin. This is where I start designing your cover, based on the concept we agreed upon.


I send you the final version of your cover. At this point you can ask for three revision rounds to refine your cover and make it perfect.


Your cover is perfect now, so I start designing all the optional add-ons. Then I pack them up in a neat zip file and ship them.
