We are in need of someone who can effectively design custom (no templates) book covers based on a book's theme and/or writer specifications. The designer must be able to capture the essence of a book using typography, color, and imagery. The candidate should have a thorough knowledge of creating "print- ready" files, including necessary trim, bleeds, color specs (CMYK), embedding fonts, resolution (300 dpi or more). Book covers include a spine, so the designer must be able to adapt a design that complements both the spine and back cover. Also, book covers have standard layout elements, such as a bar code and imprint logo, so designer must already be familiar with these conventions.
Interested candidates should supply work samples.
