Check out SQHG's Book cover contest…
We are producing a book in a series. The previous book were these: http://www.amazon.com/Gratitude-How-Appreciate-Lifes-Gifts/dp/145387867X/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1421423230&sr=8-2&keywords=kathryn+britton http://www.amazon.com/Resilience-Navigate-Curves-Positive-Psychology/dp/1449919375/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1421423230&sr=8-4&keywords=kathryn+britton All proceeds benefit a scholarship. The book is about the psychology of well-being and character strengths. The editors of this book are: Shannon Polly and Kathryn Britton We would like to keep the same font but the set up of the book doesn't have to be the same.
What's your vision?
The title is: Character Strengths Matter: How to Live a Full Life. We have some original pencil sketches in the book. See attached. We are very open to a creative and professional design. Just no smiley faces. There is an academic element to the book, so it can't be hokey. We'd also like on the cover of the book for it to say (somewhere small): "All Proceeds Benefit the Christopher Peterson Memorial Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania" and on the back cover of the book to have the photo of Chris Peterson. I would like to see some designs with a person leaping from one mountain to another and with mountains in the background.
There are 24 character strengths. We would like a lot of color and vitality to the cover to help the book sell. Here are the strengths and title chapters: Table of Contents 5 Appreciation of Excellence 10 Fringe Benefits of Appreciating Excellence 11 Five Actions to Build Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence 15 Bravery 17 Winston Churchill, May 10, 1940. 17 What is a Unit of courage? 19 Five Actions to Build Bravery: 24 Creativity 26 Be Creative Like a Child 26 Five Actions to Build Creativity 31 Curiosity 33 Curiosity as the Engine of Well-being 33 Five Actions to Build Curiosity 42 Fairness 43 On Monkeys and the Goddess 43 Five Actions that Build Fairness 47 Forgiveness 48 The quality of mercy by Shakespeare 48 Who is Forgiveness For? 49 Forgiveness or Revenge?

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.
SQHG 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!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
