(Potential) Story Covers | Graphic Design

I hope everyone has had / is having a wonderful holidays! Me and the man did a number of family visits this year (it's our first Christmas together) and today we have been chilling and watching movies. I just saw the 2016 live action Jungle Book and utterly, deeply loved it.

Some might consider this jumping the gun, but I've been designing short story promotional covers for my works in progress, all in the name of building up my graphic and web design portfolio. Aside from designing websites, the thing I love most is creating book covers. The following are for two WIPs I'm currently working on - both unpublished at the moment, but hopefully they will make an appearance at some point!

I'm now working on a cover for my YA sci-fi story The Machinists' Boy, which was recently published at Youth Imagination. I'll share it when it's finished.


Beachcombing is a short YA sci-fi set on a beach in the present day.


Inked is a dark fantasy, involving a girl, a wolf, and a deep, dark woods.


You can see the full-sized versions of these, plus my other graphic design work, at J. Oliver Designs. I'm always available to do cover work for writers, agents or publishers. Drop me a line if you're interested!

Those look great! I really like the colors for Inked. For sure that cover would catch my eye.

Thank you! The "Inked" cover still feels a little like a WIP but the background and colour scheme seemed to come together the quickest. :)
