Event Details

SYNOPSIS

Creating a winning cover is a two-day 13-hour workshop suitable for anyone involved in the publishing industry: graphic designers, editors, publishers and writers who want to learn about the fascinating process of designing book covers. The keystone of the workshop will be in-depth brainstorming techniques to generate ideas and concepts that set the basis to create a great book cover. Award-winning covers by renowned international designers, including covers designed by the facilitator, will be used as case studies. Participants will engage in all stages of the creative process through the use of collaborative exercises: visual and verbal brainstorming, cover conceptualisation and design layout assisted by the facilitator.

Pre-workshop preparation:  Prior to attending the workshop, each participant would have selected two bad covers (one on fiction and another one on non-fiction) that they would like to redesign, according to their own criteria. These covers will be used by the facilitator as case-studies. After a comparative discussion, participants will provide reasons for the cover they have chosen to redesign. Participants will create cover drafts using suitable imagery from online stock image libraries after a discussion on the feasible redesign ideas.

Requirements: Designers can bring their own laptop equipped with layout design software (Adobe Indesign or alike). Non-designers can bring their laptop or tablet as well to source for images and conduct research/searches on the workshop topic.
