I love the design "Pulp Studio" came up with for my book. It was simple, clean, and yet impactful. Out of the 217 designs that were submitted to me, it's the one where I felt I wanted to pick the book up and read it just off the title/image alone!

Xagar is truly an amazing designer and a pleasure to work with. He was very quick and very efficient. He went above and beyond at times to deliver the final product.
How lullmengesha started their book cover journey
Alia Tero: The Many Lives of Darren Datita
Lull Mengesha and Scott Spotson
Lull Mengesha and Scott Spotson have written several books.
Alia Tero: The Many Lives of Darren Datita is a humorous book that is light-hearted and describes how a lovable schmuck named Darren Datita comes of age on a planet based on Earth but with a very different way of life (everyone on Alia Tero rotates jobs, city, and roommates every four months and families do not stay together, and after a child becomes eight months old, he or she has a revolving door of caregivers every four months until attaining the age of 16). Darren undergoes many jobs, roommates, and locations all over the world, encountering bizarre mishaps and strange roommates and learns about life in general.
Young Adult, and adults who enjoy a light humorous read of personal experiences and quirky characters, think “The Fault in Our Stars,” or “The 100-Year-Old Man who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared.” Ages 18 and above.
Book cover type
I'm automatically curious about their journey. They look small but also prominent in the design.
The simple design and colors made me curious about the city. Despite being far in the picture it is the first thing my eyes settled on.
The main character has a lot going behind them and these elements are part of his/her world.
I'm curious about what the main character has in front of them.
I would typically like a design that's more minimal, humorous and light hearted.
What to avoid
Designs that are very busy should be avoided. Also this is more fun novel so hopefully covers are positive and avoid dark messaging.
