Book Cover Art Chapter 4: More Mocking

October 16, 2013 by Ashley Ruggirello This week’s post in the Book Cover Art series is exciting for me as a designer, because I’m able to show you in a side-by-side view how we use feedback to incorporate and transform the design. As promised, I’m going to recap Kisa’s thoughts on the original cover mock-ups from Chapter 3, and then give you a chance to catch the subtle, and not so subtle, updates in with the new version. The mock-up and revise process can consist of many rounds, but for the sake of this series we’re only showing one round of changes, although Kisa and I have gone through a couple more to get to a more final design. Next week we’ll debut that final, and jump right in to a step-by-step tutorial on how the cover was created. We’ll provide all the stock and styles so you could practice and create the Unmoving cover yourself. Follow along, and let’s have some fun! :)
