livefreeretiree got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Book cover: travel, personal development, and a journey deep into the unknown
Check out livefreeretiree's Book cover contest…
Travel & Hotel
The book is a philosophical memoir of ten years of travel to 45 countries, seeking information about myself and the human world around me. Readers are challenged to look the way they have arbitrarily learned to do things and throw themselves into their own personal unknown. They will find deeper depths and higher highs because they will finally know who they really are.
What's your vision?
I want a mature but alluring design that evokes the underlying mythology of personal development as a journey into the unknown that I am trying to convey. It should attract deep thinkers, but not necessarily be interesting for readers looking for something light and casual about travel. I like the idea of simple but powerful imagery - something that gives you an instant sense of what kind of read you are in for. This isn't for everyone. Color choices are not very important, but nothing that conveys shallowness or immaturity.
Here are some examples of book covers that I think use simple but powerful imagery to convey the tone and subject of what they are about: http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348222069l/821380.jpg http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348222069l/821380.jpg https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51QKze8PWIL._SX349_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/10/The_Power_of_Myth.jpg http://www.jcf.org/new/contribute/images/jca_1_6_5_600.jpg https://acasadevidro.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/campbell-11.jpg https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/40/3f/63/403f633551ccf6ae14e840be7b43c7b5.jpg https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/9/9e/Humanzoodes.jpg/220px-Humanzoodes.jpg

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.

Hortasar, was great to work with. He was extremely responsive and quick. More impressive was the quality of his designs and his ability to deliver on my design instruction and feedback. Highly recommend.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
