So-So Design created four book covers for me. The books were all part of a series – three I’d published already and a fourth which is in production. The covers I had were not working. I didn’t get the brief right, the designer I’d worked with did not have a sense of the genre, nothing had worked out to my satisfaction.
I needed a new look for the series, one that was consistent, evoked the ‘feel’ of the books, but was also keyed to the genre and commercially strong. So-So Design did all that and more.
The new covers they designed for me, were pitched exactly right. Every one of the four covers were strong and clear with loads of atmosphere. Each one referenced the content of the book whilst nailing the genre, sending a clear message to readers, and inviting them in to discover more.
I couldn’t be happier with the finished product and working with So-So Design was a pleasure from start to finish.
Julia at So-So Design did a fantastic job reworking the covers for my seven-book series. I was happy with the original designs but wanted to revamp them to reflect current crime thriller trends (minimalist, cleaner fonts). She was a joy to work with – communicative and flexible, with a deep understanding of the genre conventions and series tone. I’m absolutely delighted with the results. The designs have notably improved sales, and I can’t wait to work with So-So Design on future titles. Highly recommended.
