Book cover type
Other color requirements
I LOVE the lower case two tone (B/W or grey) author name at bottom. the title font should coincide with the photo of the dog behind the wire cage. thinking pick up the blue from his eye. The photo is the focus.
Profound. Simple. Statement. Clean. Heartstrings.
What to avoid
looking "too busy" and being "too cliche/expected"
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.
Gilvaryamy 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!
Susan is amazing to work with and the quality of her work on my covers and bookmarks gets compliments every time I go to stores and conventions for book signings.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
