A very positive experience. The designer was professional and responsive to my requests throughout the competition and even after they had won the competition. Good service all the way.
How cancian started their book cover journey
NIHILISM / Ateismo & Liberdade / O Vazio da Maquina
it's not necessary to include this kind of information
It's a collection of books on existentialism, science, philosophy, focused on atheism and nihilism. They discuss the lack of meaning and the pointlessness of life. A tone of hopelessness and depression permeates it. A bit harsh, a bit sarcastic. But honest. Real. What they say is hard on the reader, but they get a few smart laughs too.
Students, young adults 18~35, philosophy gradutates, teachers, nerds, people that are depressed, lost in life, maybe having a mid-life or existential crisis. Looking for understanding the world they live in.
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
the whole book must be solid mate black. with a design over it.
Hi. I would like a minimalist book cover template (it's for a collection, so it has to be editable)
I would like an effort to improve that concept, make it look more beautiful or sleeker without changing the current general style that I plan to keep for historical reasons. (when I started selling books I had only the option for black hard cover).
A black cover, maybe some texture, of background color contrast, but keeping the big, serious, elegant typography). You can change the font, but keep a similar look.
What to avoid
He should not use any kind of picture; no realistic images. I'm a web developer, so I'm familiar with some stuff de designer will know too. I'm looking for a FLAT DESIGN (see "ios7"), and the elegant shapes of google material design, with its well-defined, SOLID, SOBER style. It should look good in a smart way, with elegance and simplicity.
