fantasy book cover designer J. L. Wilson Designs

Who am I as a designer?

I’m Jenny, the designer behind J. L. Wilson Designs. I specialize in creating eye-catching book covers for breathtaking fantasy and sci-fi stories. I especially enjoy working on books that feature stories about powerful, complex women in worlds that aren’t quite like ours, and I use a combination of 3d art, photomanipulation, and digital painting to bring these stories to life.

While I love creating beautiful custom art, I make all my cover design decisions with a focus on marketing first, art second. My goal is not just to create a beautiful cover you as the author love, but to create a cover that has all the elements it needs to sell your book to the right readers.

Who am I as a person?

I grew up in a two-stoplight town wondering what life could be like outside the town limits. While I was young, I did this by reading fantasy and science fiction books, visiting worlds other writers dreamed up for me.

When I got older, I did this by traveling the world to study endangered languages and living in the mountains of Papua New Guinea.

Now that I’m back in the US, I discover new worlds by writing fantasy and science fiction and creating fantasy and science fiction covers, dreaming up my own worlds for other people to visit and helping other other authors invite readers into theirs.
