Cover Redesign: 'My Dearest Bea' by Peyton H. Roberts
Design Note #1: I loved the idea of using real-life photos of the letters provided by the editor. Adding a personal touch can make a cover more interesting.
Design Note #2: Adding a photograph of a trumpet mixed with musical note illustrations creates a playful vibe and says a lot about the author of the love letters.
Design Note #3: The original cover was dark and hard to read. I kept the background light and used red to really brighten it up.
Design Note #4: Subtle details can be fun to try. I added a faded image of Bea’s face onto the background since the letters are all addressed to her.
