"How To" non-fiction adult books plus children's fantasy books
What's your vision?
Battie Batford Saves The World by MEL Thomson. Please design a printable children's (7-10-year-olds) fiction e-book cover (front and back without a spine). The picture design is on the front and my blurb is on the back. The cover needs to be exciting for boys and girls. It can show the places and things Battie sees on his travels, it can be bold with a picture of Battie, his friends and his spaceship or it can show outer space. Please note that the battered plain red VW van has wings. All or any of these items can be included (see ideas in images section below).
The front cover is 6 x 9 inches. Please allow room around the front and back cover for bleed, between the design and edge. The barcode space is on the bottom right of the back cover. The cover PDF should be about 800 DPI. The writing for the back cover (blurb) is below.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
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.
evethomson 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!
MissJo produces exciting children's book covers. She reads the brief and creates a cover incorporating the features with imagination and flare. I would use her skills again.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
