Dancing in the Lyrics is a spirited and heartfelt compilation of poems inspired by photographic works. The artistic poetry collection, with captivating wordplay and images, delightfully takes the reader on a journey into the passionate affairs of love, life, and laughter.
Adults over 18 years old, females, college-educated
Book cover type
Open to design; however, I envision a silhouette/ profile of a woman dancing around words and/or musical notes. Vibrant energetic colors should be used. If a woman's image is used it should have cross-over appeal. However, I am open to abstract images of movement.
What to avoid
Avoid specific demographic images if using a woman. The reader, which may likely be female, should be able to relate to the figure shown. For example, see the image uploaded in file.
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.
Ward.tj7 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.
