Donnavernon got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create an intriguing front cover for Rejuvenation using an antique ship's compass
Check out Donnavernon's Book cover contest…
Women's spiritual self-help books
What's your vision?
1. The front cover will be in a 5" X 8" format. The back cover will also be in a 5" X 8" format. Please use a spine width of 1/3" for now. This may need to change slightly once the final page count of the book is known. This information will be provided to the winning designer. 2. I have an account with shutterstock.com. Shutterstock images are preferred. 3. My book is in the women's spiritual self-help genre. 4. Image: I need a photo of an antique ship's compass. Google (pictures of antique ship's compasses) first to see the photos there, then move on to the photo collection websites when you know what you are looking for. A gold or white face to the compass is preferred--in that way the red arrows will be visible. The ship's compasses come in a brass housing with liquid inside the face and have a straight needle (the arrow) which points from north to south. Keep the needle that way and then place several red needles (arrows) from the north point to the northeast point on the compass (shade them from light to dark--dark at the northeast point). 5. The book title is , Rejuvenation. The signature: Donna V. will be in the fond "before the rain." 6. Author's Bio (text for back of book) will be submitted during the contest. 7. Author's photo will be submitted to finalists. Leave open a space 2.75" deep and 2.25" wide 8. Book selling price is $16.95 and you will need to leave a space for the bar code. Place price on the far left, barcode on the far right. (back of cover---bottom) 9. To get a sense of style and aesthetic, have a look at my first contest http://99designs.com.au/book-cover-design/contests/book-cover-needed-spiritual-self-help-swan-illustrations-229057 or my latest contest: Book cover featuring a spotted eagle ray for Aloha. (Keep in mind that I need an image of an antique ship's compass this time) Notes: My style is simple and elegant. I always use a white background for each of my books. Good Luck to everyone and thank you for your participation. Cheers, Donna V.

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.
Donnavernon 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!
Eastwood Studio® picked up even the smallest details from our brief and converted our ideas into a highly creative, comprehensive yet fresh design which we are super happy with! Her communication was very targeted, responsive and she understood and took aboard our feedback right from the beginning and continuously throughout the iterations of the project in a very straightforward manner.
Highly recommended, it was a pleasure to work with Eastwood Studio®, always again! Thank you :)
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
