DESIGN PROCESS

1

SCHEDULE

Conquering the world means being extremely busy. Between deathrays and creating a robot army, we want to make sure we can fit you into our schedule. Whether your project is due next week or next year, we want to ensure that there’s time. During this stage we:

  • Check for availability
  • Sign contracts

2

COLLABORATE

The start of any evil masterplan is all about the back and forth between author and Villain. Every design has a personality and we want to make sure that we’re pushing your project in the correct direction. During this stage we:

  • Look at genre trends
  • Pitch ideas & concepts
  • Fill out the Design Brief

3

DEVELOP THE CONCEPT

The Villain gets to work on their nefarious design. We make sure the author gets a chance to see and collaborate before finalizing the project. During this stage we:

  • Research your archnemesis
  • Retrieve stock images & fonts
  • Create some cover chaos

4

FEEDBACK & REVISION

What’s better than a tyrannical team-up? We’ll rough out your design until we find a comfortable stopping point and shoot it over to you for feedback. Don’t worry, you can’t hurt our feelings, we’re villains afterall. During this stage we:

  • Get feedback from the author
  • Revise. Revise. Revise.

5

DELIVER

It’s time to execute that sinister design.  After finalizing the cover we send the files to the author so they can begin selling like a Villain. During this stage we:

  • Finalize last minute changes
  • Prep assets for delivery
  • Pay outstanding balances

6

UNLEASH THE CHAOS

Go out into the world, and share the new shiny cover. Scream from your secret lair and stand as the ruler of your domain. During this stage we:

  • We celebrate a new cover
  • Author dominates world
  • World Domination Not Required (But Encouraged)
