Elusive: An International Thriller Book Cover Design

 In current projects

Tonight I’m working on an update/makeover for Sara Rosett’s International Thriller “Elusive”.

Here is the original cover.

Some things I don’t like about it: the original background image (street) has no styling, same with the gun/money. I would have run a filtered action once I put them both together to make the colors more cohesive and a little more dark and mysterious. Doesn’t look like a thriller book cover to me.

Not loving the Red text ( a little hard to read). The title is transparent, and has a white stroke and a black stroke/drop shadow… there’s too much going on.

Here are some of my samples:

    I love the photos in elusive3, but the title still has the readability issues. elusive6 has great titles, and the art is pretty attractive as well!
