Melbourne book cover designer, Lucy Murphy, has won the Cover Designer of the Year award for the United Kingdom’s Romantic Novelists’ Association’s (RNA) annual Industry Awards for 2022. The awards celebrate the hard work and talent of any person, group or organisation who has championed the broad genre of romantic fiction in a positive way.

She is genuinely excited about fonts, colours and layouts, loves to read, and uses way too many exclamation marks in her emails. Lucy has a Bachelor’s Degree in both Graphic Design and Marketing, which helps her create book covers that not only look pretty on the shelf but also attract the right target market and stand out in the crowd. Lucy lives in Melbourne, Australia, with her husband and Finnish Lapphund but works with authors all over the world.
