We were extremely pleased with the high-quality of designers who participated in our book cover contest. With 52 participating designers, it was a difficult decision, but Mr. Alexander von Ness was most creative and most responsive to our design requirements. It was a pleasure to work with Alexander and we intend to utilize his services again in the very near future.
Great work. Always prompt and full of quality ideas. Iram's design is better than I could have imagined. I hope to have the pleasure of working with Iram again soon.
Delivered on my concept in the fastest time I have seen. Quality of work was great.

INNOVATIVE STATE: HOW NEW TECHNOLOGIES CAN TRANSFORM GOVERNMENT is a brilliant insider's look at the American government and its history, from the first Chief Technology Officer of the United States, Aneesh Chopra. In this book, Chopra makes an argument for how, drawing on “open innovation,” we can reshape our government and face the 21st century’s most difficult problems, from health care to energy.
For INNOVATIVE STATE, we are looking for a bold, graphic cover design with a conceptual feel—something impactful and unpredictable but easily readable. The book is intended for a wide commercial audience, not only an academic one. Designs should include the title (Innovative State), subtitle (How New Technologies Can Transform Government), and author name (Aneesh Chopra). We are looking for a front cover design only. The image should be 6.125” x 9.25”. Please submit the design as a jpeg. Further information about the book and the author is attached.
