How ShayneTilley started their print or packaging design journey

Summary

We're releasing a new series of books called "The Ultimate Reference", and want to develop a new style of cover. The theme for this cover is "simple and elegant". Please see the full brief for more details...

Company name

SitePoint

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Accepted File Formats:

Vector Formats (.eps, .pdf or .ai)

Your design needs to adopt a less-is-more approach. What I want to see is good use of fine lines, fonts, and layout. What I don't want to see are complex gradients/patterns or heavy use of imagery. If you do want to use some sort of texture, maybe use a watermarked representation of the technology that the book applies to (e.g. CSS).

The desired outcome is a simple, elegant, well balanced design that will make our books stand out in a bookstore.

There are three design elements: the front cover, the back cover, and the spine.

Front cover:
Title: The Ultimate CSS Reference
SitePoint Logo: http://www.sitepoint.com/logos/site…-logos.zip
Author Names: Two names
Size: 7" X 9"

Spine:
Title: The Ultimate CSS Reference
SitePoint Logo: http://www.sitepoint.com/logos/site…-logos.zip
Author Names: Two names
Size: 1.5" X 9"

Back cover:
There are three main elements to the page: the author bios, the descriptive section, and the barcodes. Please see the following file for an example of the content elements that will need to be included on the back cover. The design is up to you.

Size: 7" X 9"

Color:
The three colours at your disposal are white, orange (PANTONE: Orange 021 C or CMYK O, 53, 100, 0) and blue (PANTONE 2955 C or CMYK 100, 45, 0, 37).

You can find all of our other book covers here:
http://www.sitepoint.com/books/

But we're looking for something different to what we've traditionally created, so don't base your design on what we've already got.

On top of the prize, if your design is successful then you'll receive acknowledgment in the book, as well as copies of the final product.

Good luck!
