SYNOPSIS

This is a two-day 13-hour workshop that aims to help writers and publishers to assess book cover designs, how to elaborate a good brief and how to work efficiently with designers. The stages and key aspects involving book cover creation will be explained using published books including covers designed by the facilitator. The keystone of the workshop will be the elaboration of a comprehensive brief, an essential requirement prior to commissioning a cover design but often overlooked by both writers and publishers.

Duration: 13 hours, two days (with two breaks lasting 15 minutes each and one lunch break lasting one hour per day)

AIMS

  • To provide the participants with know-how about book cover design that can be used to improve their collaboration with designers.
  • Use collaborative exercises to understand the importance of a design brief as the pillar or the creation process.
  • Discuss and explore how the contents of a book can be translated into visually language efficiently.
  • Acquire visual skills that can help to assess cover drafts.
