UnderCover: New novel

New novel

This author came to the design process with a specific look in mind. I've learned that the best way to facilitate the design process in these types of situations is to make sure the client is involved every step of the way and to make sure to get their buy-in throughout the process.

In this case, the author chose the seascape from a lightbox of images I selected; she chose the silhouette of the man from another lightbox; we worked on creating the reflection together, etc. While it would have been more personally satisfying to explore different concepts for this novel, doing so would have just frustrated this client. In the end, she is satisfied and the cover is solid.
