Some of the designers who made it happen

Winner - Venanzio
Fantastic designer. Great to work with and very responsive to communications and feedback. Sticks by their work and was very responsive to some needed format changes post-contest so I could submit to different printing houses. You will not regret choosing Venanzio.

Finalist - G E O R G i N A
I had actually seen Georgina's work on a couple of other book covers in the past and started thinking about how great it would be to get her to design something for me. About a year later, I decided to re-do my book design and I came to 99Designs for that service. I had initially remembered Georgina and looked to see if I could find her, but didn't, so I posted one of her covers as an example to other designers of the type of covers I really liked. A couple of days into the contest I noticed that she had started watching so I immediately invited her to the contest and never looked back! I have been really happy with the quality of work she produced, as well as the depth of options she has provided. I definitely recommend her skill to anyone!

Finalist - RetroSquid
A complete pleasure to work with--fast, excellent, and attentive to detail. I highly recommend this artist!
- Angie H
Finalist - Kinnara
Kinnara was just amazing. She is an absolute professional. Ready to change anything we needed at a moment's notice, she improved upon each prior design with brilliant execution. She is a wonderfully artistic designer that we look forward to working with in the future!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

I'm a young adult fantasy author.

What industry do you think your business is most related to?

Entertainment & The Arts

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

I am seeking a professional cover design for my book, which I expect to publish in June. I will be publishing to both e-reader and print. The novel, titled "Thorn," is a retelling of the Grimm's fairy tale 'The Goose Girl.'

Attached please find:
- Formatting requirements for e-reader and print editions
- Book cover templates for the print edition (PDF and PNG)
- A document containing an excerpt for the back cover of the print edition, as well as a brief synopsis of the novel and a description of key characters
- The first three chapters of the book (to get a sense of style and character)

I will need Photoshop compatible RGB files with all layers in tact including adjustment layers and editable Type layers. I would also like a final JPEG all images and a final print-quality PDF of the print edition cover. I reserve the right to use these for other promotional materials, including bookmarks and my website.

I do not have preconceived notions of what I would like on the book cover. Please feel free to try what you like; I am looking forward to seeing your designs.
