Creative Design, Proven Results
Book cover design and formatting. Make your book beautiful.
Hey there! Welcome to Creativindie Covers – I’ll be honest, I haven’t updated my website in years and most of our covers are *way* better now than anything in my portfolio. But don’t worry; we’ll still one of the best book cover designers in the industry, and we’ve helped thousands of authors publish their books (and even become bestsellers!). All the details are below but all you really need to know it this: we will absolutely get your project perfect. And if we don’t, we’ll refund you 100% – so it’s always risk free. That’s just one of the many ways we support indie authors. There’s just one catch: we make covers that sell. We know what will sell your book. Books we’ve designed have spent months on the bestseller lists and made tens of thousands of dollars. Want us to help with yours? Get in touch today.
WHAT YOU THINK YOU NEED: A BOOK COVER THAT MATCHES YOUR STORY.
WHAT YOU ACTUALLY NEED: A BOOK COVER THAT WILL ATTRACT YOUR AUDIENCE.
Why Choose Us?
You need more than a book cover designer. You need someone who can help make your book successful. Average designers can make what you want, or make something that is clean and functional, but they probably won’t know what kind of covers are performing in your genre or field right now.
A good looking cover isn’t good enough.
You need the right cover – the one that converts the most viewers into buyers; the one that properly manages reader expectation to prevent the negative reviews that appear when the cover is attracting the wrong sort of people.
Our covers perform better.
They’ll remove buyer resistance and make it easier to get reviews. Your Amazon page will convert better leading to a higher sales rank. Basically, everything you do to market your book will be easier, saving you a lot of time and effort.
Our covers give you an unfair advantage…

The Results Speak for Themselves
“I’m well past 25,000 copies sold and have 260+ reviews on Amazon with 75% of them five star! My success is in no small measure a reflection on your cover design. Thanks for everything!” —Paul W
I just wanted to tell you again how much I love this cover. It strikes the perfect cord with me, plus it’s just eye catching and stunning. Much better than the first two traditionally pubbed books, IMO. And the website is perfect and exactly what I needed. Feeling incredibly blessed that I ran into you at that con – and thank you again for everything. —Kerry Schafer
“I wanted to thank you for creating two outstanding book covers for me. Both books are under review by a major book publisher and they have commented on the quality of the cover. Thank you very much for your hard work, diligence, quick response, and creativity!! You are the best of the best!” —John Mattone
“Thank you for the perfect cover for Lowcountry Shrimp Boil! It’s currently ranked #392 of all books in the Kindle Store. That is 392 out of 6 million! Amazing. This would NEVER have happened without your beautiful eye-catching cover! I thank you and cannot wait to see what you do with my next cover.” —Laura Momot
What do you need help with?
How it works: choose a package above and book your spot by making a secure payment. You’ll be asked to provide some information about your book so we can get started. You should see cover design samples within 10 days of ordering. Once you’re happy with the final design, we’ll send full-resolution files you can upload to the online publisher of your choice. And if for any reason we don’t get it right, we’ll refund you 100%. Total satisfaction or your money back, that’s our promise.
In fact, we’ll do better than that: take your cover for a test run and see how it works. If your book isn’t selling and you think the cover is the problem, we’ll redesign it for free. And we’re the only book design service that can make a promise like that.
* Basic formatting included. Additional fees may apply for books that require images, tables, graphs, or footnotes. *

"Thank you for the perfect cover! I enrolled it in Amazon Select and as part of the program it is free today and tomorrow. It's currently #392 in the Kindle Store. That's 392 out of 4 million! Amazing. This would NEVER have happened without your beautiful eye-catching cover! I thank you and cannot wait to see what you do with my next cover."
"How can I express my absolute gratitude for your care and concern through every stage of this project? The subject matter of the book is of course, so personal and delicate, that it was difficult for me to trust it with anyone, yet it was beyond my scope to take it to the level it needed to be. I put my trust in you and you went above and beyond my dreams. I will not forget this."
"Derek did a fantastic job of my book cover. I had a nebulous idea in my head as to what the central images would be but couldn’t articulate them properly. Derek used a process of trial and error, presenting all kinds of alternatives that helped us to work towards the finished product together. The result was far superior to what I had imagined."
"It is perfect. I couldn't have dreamed up anything better, nor could I be happier! It's beautiful, clever and does a great job bringing the elements of the book into visual metaphor. You really surpassed expectations, Derek. THANK YOU!"

Get In Touch
Have questions? Get in touch! We understand choosing the right cover designer is important. Hopefully our portfolio and testimonials are enough to convince you that we’re amazing at what we do. If you’re wondering if we can help you with your specific genre or subject, we absolutely can. But feel free to reach out first and tell us more about your book, so we can make sure we’re on the same page before you place an order.
Can you publish for me?
We specialize in book design, but are not a full-service publisher. You’ll need to make your own account with Amazon (or other print-on-demand services) so that you can upload the final files you receive from us. There’s a small learning curve, but it’s much better to hire a designer directly this way, rather than giving up more control and paying much more to a hybrid press who doesn’t add any extra value. A full-service package including book design and launch help would cost around $5000; if that’s what you’re looking for, feel free to send us a message. Otherwise, we’ll help walk you through the process of creating an account and uploading your files, but we can’t do it for you.
