Book Cover Redesign: 'That Night'
Design Note #1: Unlike in the original, I made the title and author name stand out and reflect the same colors and shadows as the image.
Design Note #2: Sometimes you don’t want images perfectly centered. The image here is off-center enough that it creates an edgy, uncomfortable feel. This is perfect for the book’s gritty subject matter.
Design Note #3: Using a hand-written font gives the cover an almost vulnerable feeling; it lets readers know that this will be an intense story that is told in a personal way.
Design Note #4: To indicate that this is a YA book, I chose an image of a teenage girl. But I made sure it was a photo that grabs the reader’s attention.
