Fernando Leal Zabaleta
My name is Fernando, I am 20 years old and live in Pelotas, Brazil. I intend to self-publish Estrelas fixas in the december, 2020. (Meu nome é Fernando, tenho 20 anos e moro em Pelotas, Brasil. Eu pretendo publicar Estrelas fixas em dezembro deste ano.)
A poetry book about the universe, the meaning of life, how much it can hurt, and how bright it can shine. If I would compare the style of my poetry book to a novel, it would be "The fault in our stars". [Um livro de poesia sobre o universo, o sentido da vida, o quão forte pode doer, e o quão forte pode brilhar. Se eu fosse comparar o estilo do livro a um romance, seria "A culpa é das estrelas".]
Especially young people aged 15-25, Brazil, who are interested in the cosmos outside and within us. [Especialmente jovens entre 15-25 anos, brasileiros, que se interessem pelo cosmos fora e dentro de nós.]
Book cover type
Don’t know yet
A5 dimension. Something artistic but not childish (the same applies to the font used). Harmonious, profound. Maybe something with stars (the title means "Fixed stars") or the ocean would be great (maybe both); in the book there is a metaphor of the sky being a sea where the stars float. Please feel free to try something you believe will look good though. [Algo artístico mas não infantil (o mesmo vale pra fonte usada). Harmonioso, profundo. Talvez algo com estrelas ou oceano (talvez os dois); no livro tem uma metáfora do céu como sendo um mar em que as estrelas boiam. Mas por favor sinta-se livre para tentar algo que você acredite que ficará bonito.]
What to avoid
No people, since its not a novel. And probably no use of real world images, I prefer something more artistic, drawn or abstract. [Sem pessoas, considerando que não é um romance. E provavelmente sem o uso de imagens do mundo real, eu prefiro algo mais artístico e desenhado ou abstrato.]
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
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.
fernando.zabaleta collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

And then… they selected a winner!
Angelina was a dream to work with. We gave her a pretty broad concept and she ran with it and came up with something beautiful, fun, and creative that fit with our brands aesthetic. Highly recommended!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
