It is unfortunate that an ecover design seldom drops a hint about if the book is pleasant-reading or not. Even if a book reads well, it may feature a disgusting cover page and the opposite is true as well. The long and short of this preamble is to give a warning message to the book worms – a book must not be judged by its cover design.
However, that reality may take us to a wrong perception that designing a great ecover is just waste of your time and resources that could be spent for other important purposes. Truth is, you can never deny importance of good look as it casts the first impression and that first thing always matters a lot.
Over time, there has been much of change in sphere of technology and we are now living in an era where 3D is an ‘in’ thing. A fascinating and relevant 3D image on your book cover page will influence the purchasing decision of your target book readers. It is highly likely that you will experience a large pool of traffic on strength of a professionally done 3D ecover page.

How to create a good piece of graphic work for your ebook cover?

Sky should be the limit for a graphic designer to come up with a unique and stunning ecover that truly reflects subject and substance of the book. To create an eye-grabbing ecover graphic, a designer should have good sense for colour, a very high level of artistry and eye for detailing.
Last but not the least; he should also have good knowledge about use of designing software.
Will special effects do justice to ecover?
