ahollys1 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
"Design Eyecatching Book Cover to draw both Male/Female Attn"
Check out ahollys1's Book cover contest…
The Abandoned Moth
The author is down to earth yet looks for imaginative ways to perceive life and to solve people problems, even if it means moving in and out of other dimensions.
A man in his late 30's was abandoned by his parents, later divorced by his wife, beaten and dropped off in an abandoned town where he struggles to find reasons to keep living, even though he is fearful of life itself.
Older adults, mostly females who have read The Naive Bumblebee, and males; people who like fantasy stories or light sci-fi, and who are interested in the mystical or spiritual aspects of life.
Book cover type
5.5 x 8.5, Simple, serious, somewhat mystical looking, I like the blue hues but open to other color ideas. I would like the moth image large enough to be clearly seen but not overtake the whole cover, Author Name smaller than Title please. (Please see book cover below that I used from 99 Designs)
What to avoid
No people pictures, No flashy colors
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
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.
ahollys1 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!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
