Check out derekalvarez's Book cover contest…
This is a multi-author book, with 100 authors
This is a story of change. The 2020's have given us the gift of clarity. It has been a time for seeing what really matters, and for making adjustments to line up with our core values. For some, this meant huge changes in career, education, sustainability, and spirituality. For others, this meant showing up to assist all who were feeling the call to shift into the new. This book will guide you to the freedom and connection that can only come when aligning with your true self. Are you ready to create heaven on earth? This is how it happens.
Women and men, age 35-55, Spiritual
Book cover type
6x9 inches, spiritual energy. We've attached some examples of some simple covers we like. I have an idea for a tan/gold background with some texture to it and a simple mandala under the title, which is at the top. It may even be cool to make the whole cover a mandala design, like on these examples... https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/vector-vintage-visiting-card-set-floral-408402352 We are looking for turquoise and gold as the main color scheme. It may be nice to add some color to the mandala. We like a watercolor style effect. Here are some mandalas we like, in no particular order... https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/luxury-ornamental-mandala-design-background-gold-1134961292 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/template-card-invitation-beautiful-gold-ornament-1705108273 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/luxury-packaging-design-chocolate-bars-vintage-1488457370 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/mandala-movement-golden-lines-on-black-1144666448 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-illustration/colored-vintage-background-steampunk-doodle-style-1071826910 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/mandala-movement-golden-lines-on-black-1168263061 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/florals-movement-golden-lines-on-black-1169778289 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/luxury-mandala-background-golden-arabesque-pattern-1707757576 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/luxury-mandala-background-golden-arabesque-pattern-1707757528 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/luxury-mandala-round-ornament-pattern-background-1939556527 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/mandala-islamic-style-luxury-arabesque-pattern-1939544125 https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/abstract-luxury-mandala-background-design-1723876918
What to avoid
Unlike past covers/books we've done, we would like this to appeal to both men and women... so nothing too feminine-looking.
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.
derekalvarez 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!
Incredible artwork! Listened very well to the brief and was a dream to communicate with!
I kept wanting to change little things here and there, and this designer never complained. I am so thankful that my dream is coming through.
I would love to work with you again in the future!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
