My blog helps beginner road cyclists train for organised long distance bike rides.
What's your vision?
I would like a new cover design for my Kindle ebook. The book is called: "Sportiveur: A Beginner’s Guide To Training For, Completing and Enjoying Your First Sportive". A 'sportive' is an organised bike ride for people that ride road bikes (i.e. the same bikes used by Bradley Wiggins, Lance Armstrong etc - note: not mountain bikes). The book is aimed at beginner/intermediate cyclists, probably aged 40-60, and tells them what equipment they need, how to train, what to wear. It is interspersed with my own experiences training for my own first 100 mile bike ride. The tone of my book is friendly, with a healthy amount of English humour. It is an inclusive book. That said, there is a strong design ethic in cycling (Paul Smith is a cyclist; there are an increasing number of design-focused clothing brands). Whilst I don't want something that is 'high design', it would be great to have something that is clean and quite bold. As this is a Kindle book cover, I am looking for something that will look strong and appealing to readers in thumbnail form on Amazon. Here is the link to my book (and current self-designed cover) on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00NNZRP7U?*Version*=1&*entries*=0 Clearly I would like a better, more appealing design than I currently have. I'd also like it to be better than the "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought" books on the same page (which hopefully isn't too hard...)

It all began with a design brief.

Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
monty f collaborated with designers to refine their 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.
