Book Logo Examples and Free Templates for Authors

by CJ McDaniel // August 6  

Just as it’s beneficial to any brand or business, book logos hold the same weight as well. They aren’t just random images you slap on your brand. Rather, book logos represent who you are as an author and what you can do for your target market. 

If well-designed, book logos can make a really memorable brand image. They can also attract more attention for your books. If designed wrong, then you won’t get the traction and scope you need to sell your books.

Tips to Create the Perfect Book Logo

Authors are gifted with their ability to spin wonderful stories through words. So when it comes to graphic design, sometimes the creativity runs short. But that’s okay! 

To learn more about how to create effective book logos from scratch, here are some tips to get you started: 

  1. Keep everything simple

The moment you jam so many things into a single logo, customers may get confused. Recall that logos are often reduced to small sizes, especially when used on products such as keychains or letterheads. How can all those specifics fit into such a narrow space?

  1. Get inspiration from other book logos

Take a look at some of the most distinguished book logos and observe all the details. Jot down the quality and creativity of their designs. This is so you can see what features they lack that you can incorporate in your own logo design. 

  1. Experiment

If other book logos in your region are using gold in their logo, that doesn’t mean you need to do the same. Just like when you look at other pastry shops use rolling pins in their logo, that does not mean you will follow suit. Just experiment until you find a relevant design even though it clashes with the “norm.” 

  1. Rest every now and then

Take a break. Overthinking and overworking will not yield good results. You may be used to tiring yourself out until you drop, but just imagine how productive you can be by allowing your mind and body to rest?
