How Cover Art Professionals Can Help You

Cover art is an illustration or image placed on the outside of published products including books, magazines, comics, video games, CDs, DVDs, videotapes, musical albums and more. Cover art may be created using software programs or may be drawn by hand. As a promotional tool, cover art generally serves as a precursor or visual display that represents the contents within the given product. Cover art also serves an aesthetic purpose as many consumers make purchasing decisions based on the aesthetic appeal of a given product. Cover art graphics and images may be downloaded off the internet, created using digital software or drawn by hand onto paper. Colorful graphics that convey symbolic illustrations are a popular choice for musical artists. Moreover, authors who publish autobiographies choose to use a photograph of themselves as the cover art for their book. These are both examples of cover art images used for product promotion.

A cover art designer may create original illustrations by hand or digitally for your collections that require cover artwork. The cover art designer may freehand draw cover art and then upload it onto a digital platform or use digital tools to draw the cover art using a design software program. He or she may combine original art with other artistic elements as found on the internet. In addition, he or she may possess photography skills for capturing real life images that can also be applied and used in the making of cover art for your materials that need cover art. The cover art designer may read, view or listen to your materials for the purpose of envisioning a number of artistic options that are suitable for the given material. If your business seeks to hire a freelance cover art designer, hire a pro from with a variety of cover art expertise.
