jamesgault got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Crime & Mystery in a tropical setting appeal?
Check out jamesgault's Book cover contest…
James Gault is ex-Australian Navy, having commanded patrol boats and a frigate; been a marine rescue skipper, a yacht-master and (still) a volunteer firefighter. He lives on the New South Wales coast with his wife and dog Pippa.
An estranged Naval brother, an ex-fiancée and an unusual diamond find. Mixing them reveals a web of deceit, sex, betrayal and murder. Untangling the web is dangerous, despite an idyllic island setting in the South Pacific, but can new-found love be trusted?
Adult, either gender, who enjoy a little mysterious escapism.
Book cover type
Style to reflect tropical island setting, perhaps small motor cruiser, definitely a diamond shape of some sort (cracked?). A four-stripe naval sleeve in the corner perhaps/maybe? Mood mysterious. Attractive woman?
What to avoid
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.
jamesgault 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.
