Travel & Hotel
I run the popular travel blog, Never Ending Voyage, and have been travelling full-time with just one carry-on-size backpack for the last six years.
What's your vision?
My book is about how to pack light and travel with just carry-on (hand) luggage. It's aimed at both long-term travellers (i.e backpackers on a round-the-world trip) and those on shorter trips. Travelling carry-on only has many advantages including saving time at airports and money on checked baggage fees. The main concept I want to evoke on the cover is freedom—by packing light, you can explore the world easily without the burden of too much stuff. The cover must include the following: Title: The Carry-On Traveller Subtitle: The Ultimate Guide to Packing Light Author Name: Erin McNeaney I want the cover to be bold, eye-catching, and beautiful. I would like it to be something I can share on social media. The cover must look good as a thumbnail size in the Amazon store, and the title should be legible. It should also work in black and white on the Kindle. You can see ideas of book covers I like on Pinterest. I have included notes on each pin of what I like about the image: https://uk.pinterest.com/simonfairbairn/book-cover-inspiration/ I don't want the design to use stock photos or include an old-fashioned suitcase—this has been overused in the travel space. Something illustrated with striking imagery would be ideal. I only need an eBook cover, not a paperback version (although I may want to create one later). I'd like the final cover as a lossless file (e.g png or tiff) and the original file (Illustrator, Photoshop, etc.). The dimensions should be at least 3000 x 4500 pixels.

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.
Erin McNeaney 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.
