Michelle Files got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Mystery Thriller Book Cover
Check out Michelle Files's Book cover contest…
Escape The Dark
BLURB: Don’t hitchhike, because the person who picks you up could be a serial killer. Don’t pick up hitchhikers, because they might be your worst nightmare. What if three of them came together to form one terrifying night? Get your copy of this gripping thriller novella. Warning: Don’t read it alone in the dark.
Target audience is adults who like mystery thrillers.
Book cover type
This is a thriller and needs to be dark and mysterious looking. There are 3 books in the series, so far. So I will probably have you also do the next books in the series as well, for a cohesive look. It is very important to me that you are responsive to my emailed messages. If this sounds like you, great! This book is about people hitchhiking and a frightening night. I do require that you send me the final Photoshop files when contest is done. This is so I can make tiny changes without bothering you for them. Anything larger than that, and I will pay you to make the changes. Thanks.
What to avoid
Please don't use images that I need to pay for. I will need proof that the images you use are free for anyone to use with no licensing needed at all.
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.
Michelle Files 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!
She did a great job working with the design and meeting exact needs while offering a design outside the box form other designers. Very pleased with ease of communication and patience with tweaking.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
