Bringing visions to life on a high level
Bei allem, was ich gestalte, glaube ich daran, dass individuell gestaltetes Buchcover Design Verlagen und Selfpublisher-Autoren hilft, Bücher positiver und erfolgreicher in der Gesellschaft zu präsentieren, um Leser wirkungsvoll und dauerhaft zu begeistern.
Wir sind umgeben von unzähligen Büchern und viele verbringen einen Großteil ihrer Lebenszeit mit dem Lesen. Es werden sowohl im Privaten als auch im Geschäftlichen eine Vielzahl von Büchern konsumiert. Heutzutage wird es immer wichtiger, Bücher individuell und wirksam zu gestalten, damit diese sich eindeutig von der Masse abheben, denn das hat, glaube ich, positive Auswirkungen und gute Eindrücke auf die Leser.
Dieser Glauben verbunden mit meiner Faszination für individuell-gestaltete Buchcover Designs sind für mich das, was Grafikdesign ausmacht.
Effizientes und wirksames Design
Um die aus einem maßgeschneiderten Design resultierenden Vorteile zu nutzen, helfe ich als Buchcover Designer Verlagen und Selfpublisher-Autoren ihr eigenes individuell gestaltetes Buchcover Design zu erhalten, das sich von der Konkurrenz abhebt. Als professioneller Designer gehören die Liebe zum Gestalten und kreativer Perfektionismus zu meinen höchsten Werten.
Deswegen ist als Buchcover Designer mein Ziel, wirksames und erfolgreiches Design mit Kreativität, Geduld und Sorgfalt zu konzeptionieren und zu kreieren, damit diese gestalteten Bücher, wie ich glaube, die positivsten Auswirkungen auf die Leser haben.
Individuelles Buchcover-Design und Grafik Design
So that advantages for my customers can develop, I create eye-catching book & magazine design, but also merchandising design, web & social media design, logo & corporate identity, label & packaging design and advertising & business design. I keep doing this until my customers are completely satisfied with the designs and services I have created.
“Everything you can imagine is real.”
Das ist so wahr und ich liebe dieses Zitat von Pablo Picasso: Die Illustrationen für Buchcover-Designs gestalte ich auf Basis von lizenzfreien Elementen hauptsächlich selbst, weil ich glaube, dass dadurch jedes Buchcover als wahres Unikat hervorgehoben wird. Deswegen verwende ich speziell für Buchcover-Designs keine fertigen, lizenzpflichtigen Stockfotos (es sei denn, es ist erwünscht).
Durch die Vielfältigkeit der einzelnen Gestaltungsarten (3D Design, Illustration, Digital Drawing Style, Composing) sind der Realisierung der Design-Projekte keine Grenzen gesetzt.
Briefing & Collaboration
Konzept, Design, Reinzeichnung, Nutzungsrechte: Nachdem du mir eine E-Mail mit deinen ausführlichen Design-Wünschen geschrieben hast, werde ich mich bei dir zeitnah melden, um weitere Projekt-Details wie offene Fragen oder Kosten zu besprechen. Jedes handerstellte Design ist unterschiedlich zeitaufwändig, deswegen biete ich für Buchcover-Designs keine Festpreise an.
Damit ich weiß, in welche gestalterische Richtung es gehen soll, schicke mir gerne eine Auswahl an Beispiel-Buchcovern, die dir besonders gut gefallen, per E-Mail zu. Um die Druckdateien direkt im richtigen Format zu erstellen, solltest du mir das gewünschte Format im besten Fall mitschicken.
Auf Basis des Briefings gestalte ich einen Design-Entwurf, der deine Buchcover-Idee widerspiegelt. Nach Beendigung des Projekts sende ich dir alle relevanten Dateien zu und übertrage dir die erweiterten Nutzungsrechte am Design.
Erfolgreiche gestalterische Lösungen
After years of professional experience in creating media design, in addition to book cover designs, I of course also offer a variety of other design services:
I create book & magazine design, merchandising design, web & social media design, logo & corporate identity, label & packaging design and advertising & business design.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Franzi - for making this such a fun experience and creating a brilliant, clever masterpiece!" ★★★★★
Anita R. EschlerAuthor of VANQUISHED
"I've worked with Fran on two projects now. The first one, I had a very clear image in my mind of what I wanted, and she created exactly what I imaged in my mind, only better. On my most recent project, I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted and gave her a description of the project, and she returned with a design that was so far beyond what I ever could have imagined on my own--it was stunning and captured everything about my book through images. She really cares about her clients' projects and is always so responsive. I'll never want to work with another designer again." ★★★★★

I'll absolutely be using her for my future cover art." ★★★★★

Fran was always polite, cheerful and helpful, but most importantly, she was able to create a truly stunning cover based on the vague idea I had given her, when even I couldn't see my own vision clearly. She was more than happy to make a few tweaks and adjustments, and sent the finished files over promptly. I cannot fault her. I am so glad I found her and I can't wait for her to create more covers for me in the future. Thank you, Fran!" ★★★★★
