Fake It Till You Make It
In this session, Derek Thornton and Charles Brock will discuss the joy, constant struggle, and daily commitment to always getting better as book cover designers. Even as accomplished cover designers (with over 30 years of combined experience between the two of them) they still both have days where they wonder if this was the right career path for them. This will be a raw, and real banter where they discuss the daily grind of being a book cover designer day in and day out.
You can expect them to share some design “hacks” they use on a regular basis, an interactive question and answer time, and some back stories about their design career and about some of their favorite covers.
If you are looking for a couple of designer “know it alls” this is the wrong session…but if you want a down to earth approach to being a book cover designer, this might just be the talk for you!
