ykang got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create a journal cover art (heron eating snail) illustrating a discovery in cancer research
Check out ykang's Book cover contest…
We are cancer researchers at Princeton University. We are looking for a cover art to accompany the publication of our research article in a scientific research journal (Cancer Cell). The cover art will be used to illustrate the main our scientific findings using an artistic analogy. The readers of this cover image are usually the scientists who have the background to understand the story behind this cover art.
What's your vision?
Please refer to the uploaded sketch about our story. SNAIL is the name of the protein that drives cancer program and is the focus of the study. Since it has the unusual name of “snail” (possibly because the fruitfly embryos that lack the gene have a “snail”-like appearance), we will illustrate it with a cartoon image of Snail. In our study, SNAIL was targeted and destroyed by two other proteins, PKD1 and FBXO11, which destroys SNAIL, and prevent the damage caused by cancer cells. We would like to use the natural enemy of Snails (Herons) to illustrate FBXO11 and PKD1. Since these are two different proteins, we would like the birds to look different (e.g. different color of their feathers, or even a different species of bird). The birds would be in the action of finding and eating the SNAIL,
Please make sure that the digital files are large enough to fit the journal cover, which prints at 8 1/8 x 10 7/8 inches. In addition, it is helpful to add about 1/4 inch to each edge of the image to allow for cropping and to account for the spine. The file should have a resolution of at least 300 dpi. We have included a template for your reference. This TIF file shows the exact layout of the cover, including the logo, trim lines, and spine width. You may wish to use this to help with your layout or to make sure that your images are sized correctly to fit the cover and spine. If you use the file, please do not flatten the layers, as we must be able to access your images without the text and logo, etc. You might also find it helpful to review past examples of Cancer Cell cover art and captions; these are available in the online archive at http://www.cell.com/cancer-cell/archive. Thank you for your kind help and we are excited to receive your designs！
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.

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.
ykang 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.
