Blurb (The action takes place in the year 2063): Bioinformatician Fritz Naval is financially ruined. There is only one way out for him. He must go back to the moon to steal secret research data from his former employer, the high-tech company Cybex. Little does Naval know that the possibility of ending up in a corporate prison should be the least of his worries. An expert in electronic warfare, Saxa Hagen is sent on a hopeless mission. Several battle robots of the Danzig Alliance have fallen into the hands of an unknown organization. There is a fear that the robots are to attack the Chinese moon station to provoke a war between the great powers. But are the Chinese really the target of the war machines?

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.
Jens Bühler 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.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
