What's your vision?
I need a book cover and back cover created for a book that actually already exists. We have just recieved permission to co-brand it and make it look a part of our own. Here is the book on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Control-System-Migrations-Daniel-Roessler/dp/1606504436. The old design can be downloaded here: https://info.us.yokogawa.com/rs/591-TCV-738/images/control-system-migrations-cover.jpg I do not feel like the cover is exciting or inviting enough. We need to make it look more interesting and branded with a yokogawa look and feel. The book is on distributed control system migrations (DCS migrations). It is targeting mostly control system engineers. The cover should include the name: Control System Migrations A Practical Project Management Handbook The author's name: Daniel Roessler The publishing company logo - Momentum press. https://info.us.yokogawa.com/rs/591-TCV-738/images/Momentum%20Press_Original%5B1%5D.pdf Here are the book contents: https://info.us.yokogawa.com/rs/591-TCV-738/images/control-migration-ebook.pdf Yokogawa brilliant grid: https://info.us.yokogawa.com/rs/591-TCV-738/images/brilliantgrid_cs5.ai Yokogawa design guidelines: https://info.us.yokogawa.com/rs/591-TCV-738/images/Yokogawa_CDG_EN.pdf The yokogawa logo: https://info.us.yokogawa.com/rs/591-TCV-738/images/yo-logo.png The brilliant grid incorporation if possible: https://info.us.yokogawa.com/rs/591-TCV-738/images/brilliantgrid_cs5.ai
This should be inviting and interesting. Here are a few ebook files/covers that I think look good: https://www.marketo.com/ebooks/creating-your-mobile-marketing-strategy/ https://www.adroll.com/resources/guides-and-reports/20150730-performance-marketers-guide-retargeting-part-i http://resources.kapost.com/building-content-marketing-framework-for-enterprise.html http://resources.kapost.com/masters-of-the-ebook.html?rs=AdWords&cs=Masters.of.the.eBook.AdWords I am just expecting the cover and the back cover designed. The back cover should include everything in the original back cover minus the ebooks for engineering info on the left. There should also be a small blurb about yokogawa under the about the author section. I am happy to provide feedback or direction. Please do not hesitate to ask questions. There is a little flexibility on the guidelines, but we should use the yokogawa colors and logo provided.

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.
yokogawa collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Working with Anointing Productions was an amazing experience! Communication of the process, needs and timelines were very clear. I was able to ask questions and didn't feel as if I was a burden to the designer. Good Customer service is rare these days, but EXCELLENT Customer Service is almost impossible to find so I am grateful for the opportunity to work with them.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
