What's your vision?
We need a cover for a book about the microbiome (the various bacteria that live in our gut). We have uploaded some photos of the author (only lores, but we can get hires if needed), and also one of the designs we made ourselves. Even though it is good to see that the doctor herself looks slim and healthy, we thought it might be too "american style", and that more scientific motives might be better, or perhaps a combination of both. Please feel free to let your imagination play! Here is a detailed description (from the English version of the cover): The Microbiome – the collective name for the trillions of bacteria that live in our digestive tract - is today‘s hottest medical news topic. But what does this groundbreaking research really mean for our everyday health? Synthesizing the latest findings, Dr. Robynne Chutkan, a preeminent gastroenterologist, explains how the standard Western diet and our super-sanitized Iife styles are starving our microbiomes, depleting the „good bugs" that are crucial for keeping us healthy, and encouraging overgrowth of exactly the wrong types af bacteria. The resulting imbalance makes us vulnerable to a host af autoimmune and chronic health conditions. But, as Dr. Chutkan explains, there are effective Iifestyle and diet changes we can make to reverse this damage. Dr. Chutkan has helped thousands of patients suffering from disordered microbiomes with her comprehensive Live Dirty, Eat Clean Plan, designed to remove damaging medications and foods, replace important bacteria that have been lost, and restore health. Here she shares her powerful program to help readers everywhere recover and heal. With practical advice throughout that readers can incorporate into their lives every day, The Microbiome Solution offers: An overview of the „modern microbial disrupters" that are stripping our bodies of their natural protective systems Delicious, nourishing recipes that actually encourage the growth of good bacteria A list of important questions to ask your doctor if you have been prescribed an antibiotic, and advice on how to protect your gut during a treatment course A guide to choosing the right probiotics and supplements Critical information on how to prevent and recover from health conditions like eczema, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn‘s disease, colitis, IBS, and more An introduction to the stool transplant, the next frontier for a severely troubled microbiome This is the first book to offer a practical, effective plan for replenishing and optimizing the vital ecosystem in our gut. Start living dirty and eating clean today to ward off disease and begin the path toward lifelong vibrant health.

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.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
katrin.sigwart 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!
We had a small add-on project to a book design and libzyyy took it on despite a heavy workload. And she nailed it. Always professional, fast, and communicative, I will definitely work with her again.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
