Entertainment & The Arts
Children's Book designed for ages 7-12. Cover needs to appeal to both children and purchasing adults (parents, grandparents, teachers, etc.).
What's your vision?
We are looking for front cover, spine, and back cover work. Format requirements are attached. Cover should be appealing for both children ages 7-12 and purchasing adults (parents, grandparents, teachers, etc.) You can visit website awormnamedhank.com to read a sneak peak of the book for inspiration and to see the logo we had designed for the brand. Logo will need to be implemented as well, preferably on spine and on back cover. (logo files are attached, if you need a different format let us know and we can send). We can also send the entire book if you would like to read as well. Title of book is: A Worm Named Hank. Author: Steven Blanshan The book is a collection of four stories written by the main character, Hank (who is not a worm, just a cool kid with a horrible older brother that calls him Worm). We would like elements of each story to be captured on the cover. We believe the starting point should be on the bottom center of the cover and showcase the back of the three main characters. Hank (in middle) Sue and Isaac on either side. We were very careful to not be descriptive of the characters in the book, we want readers to have their own vision of Hank, Sue and Isaac, and not be told or shown what they look like, so please be cognizant of that when creating them. Main elements: -We would like to have a tree on the right side with a robin hood style bulls-eye attached to it with an arrow sticking out. Peeking behind that tree should be a werewolf. -We would like an ice cream cart, with the wording BubbleBEARydelicious written on it. If possible a scooby doo styled deep sea diver, maybe holding ice cream cone? -We would like an octopus to be shown somewhere within the context of the cover, perhaps in a tree fort, or tire swing. - Carved into a tree somewhere we could potentially have the initals HAT with a heart carved around them. We understand space is limited and do not want to create a crazy mix that doesn't look appealing at all. If you think something way different than what we have mentioned would perform better, please feel free to run with it. We will offer constant feedback throughout cover creation to help guide and create dialogue. On the spine, we would like the title (A Worm Named Hank) , logo, and author name. Steven Blanshan On Back, we would like the attached writing to be incorporated, the logo and the website awormnamedhank.com

And then… they selected a winner!
We had a great experience working with KaWolfram. KaWolfram understood our project and with their vision and expertise, created fun, on-brand graphics that exceeded our expectations. A pleasure to work with. Responds promptly and communicates well.
