Droithmayr got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create a book cover for Professor Daria Roithmayr for a book on racial inequality
Check out Droithmayr's Book cover contest…
I am a law professor who writes about (and teaches about) persistent racial inequality. I am targeting academics and sophisticated non-technical readers who read books about race.
What's your vision?
I want a design for a book cover. I am publishing a book with NYU Press. The title of the book is "Reproducing Racism: How Everyday Choices Lock In White Advantage." The book will be marketed to both academics and sophisticated non-academic readers. In the business, this is called a "crossover" book, or Academic/Trade. I am hoping for an attention-catching book cover. Bright colors where appropriate. Something a bit abstract and artistic at the same time. I am open to anything in terms of form--photo, artwork, etc. except perhaps for cartoon drawing. I have attached a document with the catalog copy that describes the book in more detail. I have also attached a book cover whose colors I really like.
I am looking forward to working interactively with you on the design!

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.
Droithmayr 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.
