"Weekend in Weighton" - Terry Murphy

Earlier this year I was set a challenge by British author Terry Murphy. He was looking for a custom re-design of the cover to his quirky crime novel "Weekend in Weighton".

What cranked his challenge up to pressure-cooker level was Terry had already had the cover re-designed before, twice. Because while the previous designs communicated the crime genre, they did nothing to reveal the quirky side.

I came up with a few visual suggestions to impart the fun and both Terry and I were pleased with the result. But as they say, the proof is in the pudding, so when my copy of the book arrived in the post and my hubby saw it for the first time, he looked at the flag-gun, quoted aloud "Hi-ho Silver" and started to laugh, and that's when I knew for sure: job well done.

 Here's what Terry had to say about working with me:
"I am writing to say how delighted I am with the cover you designed for my book ‘Weekend in Weighton’.
Not only am I very happy with the finished cover I also thoroughly enjoyed working with you during the creative process.I learned a lot going through your ‘patented’, step-by-step design journey.
I must also commend your patience, fast turnaround [especially given the difference in our time zones!] , amazing creative input, attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile.
I am extremely happy to recommend you and I look forward to working with you again." - Terry Murphy, aithor of Weekend in Weighton.
