WGibson648 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create a cover for a textbook, How to Do Systems Analysis
Check out WGibson648's Book cover contest…
We are the authors of a textbook, presently being used in Engineering Schools and Business Schools in Universities. We wrote the first edition, which was published by John Wiley & Sons in 2007. We are updating and redesigning the text for the second edition which is scheduled for publication (again by John Wiley & Sons) in Spring 2016.
What's your vision?
The book is entitled "How to Do Systems Analysis". It is a textbook for undergraduate and graduate level engineering and business school students. Rather than delving into the formal processes of systems engineering, this book emphasizes the underlying systems analysis component and associated thought processes. While it is (at its core) a reference text, it incorporates a number of case studies (of varying complexity) with the intent to help individuals learn how to analyze and solve large-scale problems. The first edition had a design with which we are not completely happy. There are a number of interlinked steps in the analysis process, one of the most important of which is "to iterate" (hence, the circular flow diagram on the first cover). We would like to have a cover, the design of which would be carried through to the header of the internal case studies, that might elucidate the concepts of the text, and illustrate the principles included therein.
Here is the link to Wiley so one might see the cover design of the first edition: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0470007656.html Here is the link to the online library (at Wiley) that includes the Preface, Table of Contents, and Authors' notes (again, from the first edition) that should give a flavor of the intent and content: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/store/10.1002/9780470130599.fmatter/asset/fmatter.pdf;jsessionid=B674C2F4261D3F7627BC132736CA697F.f04t03?v=1&t=ih5dywm4&s=4922df2c0d5860ecdd60cf9a479d40f60c774abc And, here is a link to a (unsolicited) review of the text: http://www.girlsguidetopm.com/2009/01/book-review-how-to-do-systems-analysis/

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.
WGibson648 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.
