Rich and KB’s Post-It Cover Direction for HOW TO SAY I LOVE YOU OUT LOUD

Our cover designers have created some amazing cover directions for HOW TO SAY I LOVE YOU OUT LOUD by K.A. Cozzo, and we’re counting on you to choose which one actually goes on the book! We know it’s a big decision, so today we’ve asked Creative Direction Rich and KB, to share the story behind this captivating cover approach:

Post It cover

This one was more of a loud and in your face approach. The cover really works to get your attention in a bookstore with the expression on her face and the bright color of the Post-it. The concept is that she has the Post-it over her mouth because she can’t say I love you out loud. If this cover direction is chosen, I would definitely want to rework the type to make it more appealing and stand out better against the background. I might also change the girl and make a color background instead of white.

If you love what KB and Rich are doing here, let us know by leaving a comment and voting for this cover direction. And remember, this is a cover direction, not the final cover, so if you have suggestions for making it even more Swoonworthy, share it in the comments!
