an.gulbis got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Agatha Christie Style Murder Mystery Young Adult Book Cover
Check out an.gulbis's Book cover contest…
Confess or Die
Heidi Klose is a 2 time grammy nominee who in her retirement has started writing and self publishing children's and young adult books. Her young adult books are murder mysteries in an Agatha Christie style. She was born in Germany and immigrated to Canada with her family as a young girl during the second world war. She has three adult children and four grandchildren.
This is a young adult murder mystery book in the Agatha Christie "who done it?" kind of style. Nothing too scary.
Teens and some adults
Book cover type
The idea from the author is to have a vintage or antique dresser with a mirror on the top. In the mirror the title "Confess or Die" is written in blood that is dripping down the mirror. The dimensions of the book are 5.5 x 8.5 inches
What to avoid
Original illustrative style is preferred over clipart. This is for teens and shouldn't be very scary.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
an.gulbis collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
