DESCRIPTION

You know the phrase ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’, right? It’s an important rule to live by and yet how many times have you found yourself scrolling through book recommendations or standing at the airport bookstore or perusing a friend’s bookshelf, looking for the book cover that strikes you as the perfect next read? Knowing the impact a book cover can have on a potential reader, I wanted to find a designer who could capture the feeling and message of my first book all while translating a personal brand I’ve built for the last 10-plus years to a new medium. That designer turned out to be Iowa native Briana Summers. 

Briana is the founding designer behind Brighten Made. She’s on the podcast with me to talk about designing the cover of How Are You, Really? as well as her corporate-to-entrepreneur pivot and the advice she has for other designers dreaming about striking out on their own and landing dream clients.
