The inner image will change, but Chloe provides a nice focus in this prototype. The inner starfield will change colour for each book, giving a nice distinct feel, but allowing the covers to instantly look separate when seen side-by-side.
It's only a first stab at the cover, but hopefully it gives a feel for a few ideas that should be present in all covers in my opinion: -
- Consistency across multiple titles
- Nice big title text that can be seen well at thumbnail size
- An easy way of differentiating between titles when cover layout is similar
I found it really rewarding designing the original Life Support cover, and getting a nice image that fits the theme of Spark of Humanity is something I'm really looking forward to working on.
