Did you know that over 2 million new books are published globally each year? That is 2 million new opportunities for yearbook inspiration!
Novels may not be the first place you think to look for yearbook inspiration, but many design styles used for fiction titles can be borrowed for school publications.
In this article, we have collected 25 great book covers to help inspire your own designing!
Simple Book Covers
Design doesn’t need to be extravagant to command attention. Some of the best design is simple, allowing the reader to focus only on the important elements. A minimalist cover is a great idea if you want a professional book that will continue to look good for decades. Keeping it simple can also speed up the design process!
3D Book Covers
If you want something creative and truly unique, a 3D book cover is a great choice. Instead of designing on the computer, use real-life elements and snap a photo! This is a good way to involve students – in both the creative process and within the photo itself. This style would also be perfect for a fun school cookbook!
Illustrated Book Covers
A picture can tell a story better than any words can, so why not try an illustrated cover? You could even harness the talent in your school by using student art! For a cohesive and 3D look, try blending and overlapping illustrations with text.
Typographic Book Covers
Typography and colour both play a large role in setting the tone of the design. If you have perfected both, you may not need much else for the perfect cover! Type-focused covers attract the eye and exude confidence.
Colourful Book Covers
Colourful books are always going to picked from the shelf first! If your yearbook is full of energy and excitement, a rainbow cover will help reflect this.
