We love storytelling, we love books, we love book covers and we have a background in marketing and advertising that will help your book cover stand out. Oh! and we love making clients happy (and we don't just say that, really! just see our reviews!). We strive to design a cover where the most important points in your story come alive in a visual way, in other words- conveying the essence of your story in book cover format. We strive to help authors who are self-publishing, find the right team to help them make the dream of publishing a reality.
After working as a Marketing Coordinator for one of the top independent travel agencies in Canada, and working alongside industry leaders, Ana opened her freelancing studio "Ana Chabrand Design House" with the idea to combine all of her skills and passions and offer a variety of services that extend far beyond the ordinary. With a love of books, storytelling, and marketing- book cover design seemed like the perfect fit.
The love for book covers is real! Ana has always loved spending hours in bookstores, picking out books from the shelves that stood out and getting mesmerized by their outstanding covers. Sometimes- just buying books because of their beautiful book covers. For her, realizing that there was a job where she could design them professionally and help self-publish authors put them up on those same shelves- was a dream come true.
Ana Chabrand Design House was founded in 2016 and since 2017, Ana focused her business on book covers primarily, becoming a known book cover designer within Canada’s self-publishing industry. Additionally, she assists her authors with author’s branding, designing their author WIX websites, logos, and marketing materials, such as printed posters, bookmarks, business cards and graphics for social media- so they can promote their book themselves or establish their author branding.
We not only design a cover that you love, but we design a cover that is professional, that fits your genre, targets your audience the best and most importantly- a cover that stands out. We design covers that leave a strong impression from the 1st look- we use lots of contrast and impact to intrigue potential readers.
We were recently named #1 in the "Top 19 Book Cover Designers in Canada" by Writing Tips Oasis. See it here.
