matthewcluff got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Clean, Simple, and Effective eBook / Audiobook Cover Design for "101 Ballet Tips"
Check out matthewcluff's Book cover contest…
101 Ballet Tips
-27 years old, male, athletic, ballet dancer -range of interests: dance, filmmaking, business, poker -25 years (range of styles) of dancing, ballet professional for 8 years
101 Ballet Tips outlines the best, fastest, and most effective ways to improve your ballet technique --> After a brief intro, I say what the tip is, and then elaborate on the tip, through 8 different sections of the book. (Mainly just tip and explanation - nothing in between.) It's both an audiobook and PDF ebook; excerpts can be found in the FILES section below.
- Young Ballet Dancers aged 8-18 - Serious dancers who want to improve their ballet technique - Likely mostly females, but a few males will be in the demographic too Location: Worldwide, but initially in Canada
I like the e-Marketing book / clean-looking styles of book covers. Also, note that I'll need a square audiobook cover for this product, too (after this initial contest / eBook cover design). Don't worry about this right way, but just keep it in mind, if it'll help with your design process. Title at top, my name at bottom, graphic in middle. Probably something along those lines, but feel free to experiment if you think something else will work better.
What to avoid
Avoid difficult to read fonts, and nothing too fancy or complicated with the artwork. Something bold, clean, and obvious should be good, especially with the title standing out. Also, I most likely don't want you using my photo on the cover by any means - I just uploaded it here for you to put a face to a name :) If you ultimately decide to use dancers on the cover (not required by any means - feel free to be creative with your options and ideas), please avoid bad technique / unhealthy looking dancers. I want this product to give off a look of professional level tips for the dance / ballet world, so any dancers included should represent a professional level of technique.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $399.
It all began with a design brief.
