I am a journalist who has just written his first novel. I am self-publishing with Amazon's CreateSpace (print on demand) and I need a design that's more inspiring than the one I have created for free using their templates!
What's your vision?
I want a cover for a humorous (satirical) novel called The Incumbent. You can read the first chapter and a brief summary at http://theincumbent.phildobbie.com. I have attached a (typo-ridden) copy of the first five chapters to give you a flavour of the novel. The back needs to include the summary shown on the current design, also attached, but I may have a couple of quotes from readers to include in a later design, so there needs to be allowance for that. It's a 6 x 9 paperback, that needs to follow the design specks for CreateSpace - https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/CoverPDF.jsp Although it needs to work as a spread (front and back and binding), the cover needs to stand alone and this is all that'll be seen by people buying the KIndle version of the book.
I've been told my writing style is very close to Ben Elton. (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ben+elton&x=0&y=0) The people appeals to people in the technology space - but not necessarily totally geeky people.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets.
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 print or packaging design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
PhilDobbie 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.
