When it comes to ebooks, it can take a lot of effort to create something worthy of reading by your audience. If either the copy or graphics let you down, it can lead to poor results and an overall waste of your time. Whilst we can’t help you write groundbreaking copy, we can provide all the expert graphic design you’ll need.

With the Standard, Agency and Pro plans, you’ll have access to unlimited design requests via either the app or email. You can communicate with your designated design on a daily basis just like an in-house team member, with unlimited revisions and users on each plan. Our team of talented designers  are all based in the UK, so there won’t be any issues with time zones when communicating with your designer.

If you already have an idea – however loose or concrete – of how you would like your ebook’s cover to look, just let us know in the brief. We are a dab hand at ebook cover design, enabling us to realise your idea as part of a professional-looking design – or simply make you a cover design from scratch. We can also help you to arrange the text to your liking, including in the fonts you would prefer. After designing pages complete with page numbering and any other formatting you’d like, you can ask for as many tweaks and edits as you like before the layout is eventually approved.

However, you will be the one who grants the approval, leading us to finalise your design in an ebook format that works well for you. While the industry-standard ebook formats include ePub and Kindle, we’ll let you choose from many other formats, too.

What is the ebook design service?

What is the ebook design service?

Ebooks are now just as popular as traditional books, and attract just as many readers. One of the most important features of ebooks is the appearance – we all still judge a book by its cover, after all! From an impressive online book cover to an effective layout throughout, the design elements matter. After all, it’s the appearance that creates the first impression, draws someone in, and makes them read on. If it doesn’t capture their attention instantly, it’s a missed opportunity. 

Whatever type of ebook you’re looking to create, they all provide excellent opportunities to promote your business, product or service. Recently, for many businesses, ebooks have become a popular digital product to use as a marketing and sales tool. Many people use ebooks as a collection of their articles and blog posts to show their expertise, while others offer them via a link on their websites, as exclusive guides to create more interest in and awareness of their brand. Whatever idea you have or whatever topics you’re looking to cover in your content, Design Cloud can assist you in your ebook creation.

Why choose Design Cloud for your Ebook design?

Why choose Design Cloud for your Ebook design?

There are several ebook templates, book cover makers, and ebook creator softwares out there that can help with designing an ebook. These types of resources might seem like an easy option, but in reality they often simplify the process and can leave out the unique elements that go into creating a visual, highly engaging ebook. Design Cloud offers an alternative option to these generic tools that are still incredibly simple and offer you an unrivalled experience. Using our expert knowledge, we’ll help you to create an ebook that truly embodies your brand identity.

From you, all we’ll need is an idea of how your brand should visually look. From there, we’ll select the best features – such as colours, fonts, structure and style – for your ebook. We’ll put our knowledge into action, using best practices and impressive graphic elements to create eye-catching ebooks. If you need any inspiration, check out our portfolio for examples of previous projects where we’ve helped with visual content marketing.

About us
How do I design an ebook?

How do I design an ebook?

It can be challenging enough to consider the title, sections and the needs of your readers, amongst other factors, when creating ebooks. However, creating an ebook doesn’t have to be hard work – we can take care of the design element for you. Simply submit your request through our online portal, or by email if you’d like, and we’ll take a look at your requirements. If any more information is needed, one of our expert ebook creators will be in touch with you to find out more. Once we have the information we need, we’ll create a professional ebook that your readers won’t want to stop reading. Once we’re done, you can submit another request if you’d like any changes to be made, and we can draft another version using your proposed edits.

This service is available in our flat rate graphic design subscription plans, starting from just £549 a month. All advertised prices are a fixed flat fee for unlimited graphic design – what you see is what you get with us, so there’ll be no nasty, surprise costs. Creating effective graphics from scratch is difficult, especially if you have little experience. Our approach to graphics makes us an ideal solution. We aren’t a traditional design agency but we are more affordable than an in-house team, and still provide all the perks of having one.

What Our Customers Say

Customer experience is our number one priority. Here's what some of our clients have to say about us

Why might your business want to create an ebook?

Why might your business want to create an ebook?

When you think of ebooks, you might initially picture novelists and short-story writers self-publishing their work digitally – and, indeed, this would be an obvious purpose for ebooks. However, many businesses can benefit immensely from going down the ebook route. This is because, whatever your company’s reasons for looking to publish an ebook, a well-designed one can enhance the perceived value of your ebook and, by extension, the company behind it. As a result, your ebook could help you to sell other products before anyone even buys or opens the book.

Given how good ebook design can act as a marketing weapon in itself, it could help you to save time and money on marketing campaigns not even directly related to the ebook. If people genuinely enjoy reading your ebook as well, this could incentivise them to stay loyal to your brand.

Why place your faith in our ebook design services?

As ebooks are also inexpensive to make and publish, they represent a low-risk marketing strategy. This is especially the case when you consider that we offer unlimited graphic design for a monthly fee, allowing you to request multiple edits without running up higher costs. The flat-rate graphic design work we offer for you, the ebook creator, includes carefully crafting an ebook design to your bespoke specifications, resulting in a design that looks uniquely eye-catching without curbing the professionalism you would expect of ebooks from a big publisher.

While it’s not difficult to simply cobble together an ebook design, use some free ebook software on it and then publish it online, such a rushed job can evidence itself in the appearance of the finished ebook. That’s why we always pay diligent attention to detail as we craft an ebook design.


What format will I receive my ebook in?

We know that there are a range of ebook formats and people will have different preferences, so we have various options available. We’ll send ebooks to you in a popular ebook format that’s easy to export as a document, to ensure you have no difficulties in uploading or publishing your book. You can choose from a range of digital formats that are compatible with your ebook application and different platforms and publishers such as Kindle, EPUB, MOBI, and PDF ebook.


How do you source images for my ebook?

Sourcing images and having the licenses to do so can take time (and a lot of patience). Our team have access to stock images to include in your ebook content, so you don’t have to worry about finding high-quality images yourself. We specialise in graphics so we don’t offer illustrations as a part of the service. However, you’ll have the opportunity to send over any images or photos that are specific to your ebook so we can include them for you.


How long does it take to get a completed ebook back?

For straightforward requests like an ebook cover, our team aim to have the finished product to you within 24 hours of receiving your brief. Full ebooks can often be a little more complex and time-consuming though, especially if you have a series of requests, so please allow more time for us to complete the project. We’re big fans of communication and transparency here at Design Cloud, so we’ll always keep you in the loop about how long your request will take. You can contact your designer at any time through our online portal, to learn more about their progress with your request and how long it’ll take to complete.

Where is my designer based?

Where is my designer based?

Our team are based in the UK and our HQ is based in Manchester. This means there are no obstacles in the way of completing your request, or your communication in the process of creating it – there are no language barriers or timezones, so our designers will always fully understand the requirements and will get to work on it as soon as they can. Our graphic designers all have a strong background in creating impressive visuals and have at least three years of commercial experience to put to good use. Our team are all directly employed by us, and we never outsource our work.

How long does it take to get set up?

Once you’ve completed sign-up, you’ll receive your account log-in details and you’ll be able to start submitting design requests instantly through the app or via email. It typically it takes around 24hrs for us to get you set up with your designer and to get them working on your requests.

What does unlimited graphic design actually mean?

As a Design Cloud subscriber, there is no limitation to the number of design requests you can submit and there is no limitation on the number of revisions you can ask for either. You will not be charged a penny extra for submitting a large number of requests or making a large number of revisions.

One thing to keep in mind – Each round of revisions is treated as a new design request and this can affect the turnaround time of other design requests you have in your queue.

We’re Only Human….

Design Cloud designers are real humans. Your designer will work through the design requests in your queue, one task at a time. Once the request at the top of your queue is complete, they will move onto the next one.

Need more design work faster?

No problem at all. It’s easy to scale your output by adding another designer to your team which will allow you to double your daily graphic design output. This can be easily done from your account dashboard or by contacting our sales team.

I have more than one business, can I use one account?

Yes you can. All of our subscription plans come with unlimited brands. This means that you can use one subscription to submit design work for multiple businesses that you may own.

Just keep in mind that your designer will only work on one active request at a time from your queue.

Do you offer a trial?

Yes we do. We offer a 14 day risk-free trial on all of our services. If you don’t like the design work we create for you in the first 14 days, we’ll keep it and you can get a full refund, no questions asked. You can read more about how the trial works on our pricing page.

What are the turnaround times?

As a rough average, Design Cloud standard users will get most design requests delivered back to them the following business day.

Turnaround times on design requests will vary and generally depend on three factors:

1. How long you and your designer have been working together.

If you’ve been working with your designer for some time, you’ll have a great workflow in place, your designer will fully understand your brand, visual identity and your preferred style. This will speed up turnaround time significantly.

If you are new to Design Cloud and you’re submitting your first task with your new designer, you’ll more than likely receive your first design back in around 1-2 business days.

2. How complex the design request is.

For example, a simple social media graphic with simple text overlayed can be very quick to turnaround, whereas something like a multi-page powerpoint presentation or detailed corporate brochure will have a lot of layers that make up the design and will take significantly longer to produce.

Our customer experience team review all requests the moment they come through to assess complexity. If there’s a complex request we think will take longer than one business day to get back to you, we’ll reach out and let you know.

3. How many requests you have in your design queue.

Your designer will work on one request at a time. If you approve the request at the top of your queue when your designer sends it back to you, we’ll jump straight onto the next one. If you delay getting back to us about revisions and sign off, this will delay the rest of your design requests being worked on.

DesignCloud PRO

One of the perks of being a Design Cloud PRO user is that you’ll get real-time communication with your designer via Slack and faster turnaround times, including same-day design delivery.

Even though the PRO plan turnaround time is quicker (especially for revisions), the number of design requests you’ll get delivered each day will still differ depending on the complexity of each request sent, how long you’ve been working with your designer and what else you have at the top of your design queue.

Are you outsourcing work to freelance sites or overseas?

Absolutely not. We don’t outsource work overseas and we don’t use freelance sites or market places. All of our designers are in-house at our office in central Manchester. The digital capital of the north.

Who owns the creative work?

You own all of the design work that we create for you. Everything we do is made specifically for you and your brand. The moment we deliver the final design files to you, you have 100% ownership. We also provide you with the Adobe layered files we used to create your work in too ie: Photoshop PSD, Illustrator AI, InDesign INDD as well as in .jpg, .pdf, or .png.

Important information around stock images.

If we need to use stock images in your work, there are some important ownership/license restrictions that you need to be aware of. You can read about these here in our terms of service.

What can you design for me?

We can design almost anything for you so long as you can explain or show us what it is you want to create. Our design scope is broad, but firmly set in graphic design (at the moment)  if you’re looking for animated 3D video, CAD design, SEO, copywriting or a sandwich. We’re not going to be able to help you…

However, we work with multiple award-winning agencies across all areas of digital and we would be to introduce you.

We can also recommend some amazing sandwich shops in Manchester too. (We love sandwiches)

Here’s our official design scope. If there’s something we’ve not mentioned on the list, get in touch and we’ll let you know if it can be done.

Can you design my logo?

If you have a clear brief or idea for your logo design including specific fonts, colours or look, sure – We can bring your idea to life and design your logo as you described it.

We are not a branding agency.

If you don’t know what you want your logo to look like and you need help to develop a brand/logo/name from scratch, then we will happily put you in touch with one of award-winning branding agency partners.

Can you design my website?

Yes we can! You’ll need to be subscribed to a Design Cloud PRO or Enterprise plan to work on web design. We’ll need your website copy already written and ready to go and you’ll need to provide us with a clear page by page brief and send us any licensed photos you want to use too.

Each website page will be designed in three standard screen sizes. Desktop, Mobile, Tablet. Each page you want us to design for your site will need to be submitted as a new request.

Web Development

Web development is not included in any of our subscription plans. We can provide you with a separate price for the development, refer you to one of our web development agency partners or you can use the designs we produce for you and work with your existing developer to build it.

We're an Agency, can we use Design Cloud?

Absolutely. We love working with agencies and would love to talk to you about how we can help you.

We work particularly well with marketing agencies who are currently outsourcing their design work to freelancers, branding agencies who want to free up their lead designers from small design tasks that create a bottleneck and any agency using non-designers to create their graphics for their own social media channels. (There’s a lot of them about)

We’re not here to replace your existing designers, we’re here to offer an affordable, low risk solution to help you design at scale.

I'm a freelancer, can I use Design Cloud?

Yes! We love helping freelancers scale up their design output.

If you have a large project that requires a heavy amount of small graphic design tasks, you can focus on the larger areas of the project and we can help you work through the small stuff and reduce the time you spend designing until the twilight hours trying to meet deadlines.
