MrTaxes.ca Inc. got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Tax Saving Bible - New Book Cover Contest
Check out MrTaxes.ca Inc.'s Book cover contest…
Accounting & Financial
Tax Saving Bible needs a new book cover. We are an accounting, bookkeeping, payroll and tax franchise launching a book to promote our company.
What's your vision?
Added points: 10. Perhaps for final rounds a gold or silver ribbon? Thoughts?? 9. Perhaps add a small ribbon on the top of the spine so that when on book shelf it shows on the spine..? Designers did this already. Great idea. 8. Boxes for photos of contributors (10) if they can be white with a frame (disrupts the look for choosing if they are black). Perhaps mock photos in there (I have uploaded one for use - perhaps also have them all facing the centre for esthetics) 7. Want to have "MMXIII" (for 2013) on the book somewhere in Roman Numearals for 2013 Version. 6. I have uploaded a Red Ribbon with gold edges and a freyed end. It is from shutter stock and I have credit and will purchase if needed for next round. Thought a sexier ribbon would be better. 5. We will just work on the Canadian one to start. 4. Water reflection is not as important as some of the designs look awesome without it. 3. Ribbon on front and back, freyed at ends and running "not" straight but waving perhaps. 2. Just www.TaxSavingBible.ca (for canadian version) on bottom as only URL on spine also and back. Want URL to be prominents. 1. The book will be $19.99 both USA and Canada. The book is titled the "Tax Saving Bible" and it is taglined "The Ten Commandments of Tax Savings" The premise of the book is ten chapters with a bonus chapter with the top ten tax saving strategies. The book will have a USA and a Canadian version so generic cover with a way to identify if it is US or Canadian version. We would like a book cover designed that has a Roman Numeral Ten (X) reflected onto a surface of water with rays of light eminating from behind it. We purchsed stock image of roman numeral ten (see attached). We would like a leathery look to the background (Bible). We would possibly like a ribbon running through the front of the cover (resemble a ribbon on a bible-we will have ribbon inserted into book also). We would like the URL "www.TaxSavingBible.com" and www.WorldTaxGroup.com on the bottom of the cover. Also the title and tax line somewhere on the cover. We would like the cover to wrap around the back of the book and on the spine (continuous background or affect) with www.TaxSavingBible.ca the spine (suggestions for spine accepted) ON the back: a giant "X" with boxes(suggestions accepted) for head photos of the ten contributors to the book. (a different author for each of ten chapters.) Of course a box on rear for ISBN number and pricing. URL's for www.TaxSavingBible.com and www.WorldTaxGroup.com book will be printed by www.amproductions.ca and the size will be appx 140 pages and 5" x 8" in size with full bleed.
To all the amazing designers. We will be using this cover with your credit on our www.Kickstarter.com and www.IndieGogo.com campaign to sell our book. We look forward to your amazing submissions. We envy your talents. Ted Talk video here where speaker says everyone is born an artist, we are just taught out of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG9CE55wbtY

And then… they selected a winner!
Nelly did a great job of understanding my vision and translating each story into a compelling cover. She was professional, easy to work wit,h and made the process painless. Bonus that she is a lovely person. Would highly recommend her.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
