For my next assignment from the design assignment bank I chose ‘Design The Cover Of Your Autobiography’. I chose this because I love reading books and a book cover is something that draws me in to a book I know nothing about.
At first I was unsure of what to use as a title, and after some careful thinking, I decided on the title ‘ The light at the of the tunnel’. I chose this title because when bad things happen I try to remind myself that bad things always happen and it will pass. As the title says, there will always be light at the end of the tunnel. I chose this template for my autobiography cover because it reminded me a lot of my childhood. I grew up camping a lot with my family and I just automatically connected with it.
I used Canva to create my book cover and I’ll post some instructions below for anyone that’s interested in creating their own book cover! Let me know in the comments below if you have any questions or comments.

The first step is to (obviously) open up the website and in the search bar type in ‘book cover’
Step 2, you can add your own picture or you can choose from one of the many templates the website offers. The templates are also divided up into categories for their themes or you could also use the search tool if you already have ideas in mind.
Step 3, once you’ve decided on an image or template, it’s time to start editing! I cleared the template I chose to make it easier to play around with sizes.
Step 4, once you have your title and name down you can continue to play around with the font (size & front), and you can even move the images around as well.
In this final step, this is where you can either download your newly created book cover or you also have the option to share it. And now you have yourself a newly created book cover!
