Check out King2017's Book cover contest…
Capture Your Career: How to Get Any Job or Position You Want in 48 Hours or Less
I didn't pay to place this on a two day contest just in case something changed, but that is the plan. Also, after I have read more info on the biz model of 99d, I have decided to make this contest blind. Last contest there was a bit of copying and while it helps me and my cause, I don't want to turn designers away from a service that helps guys like me. Good luck and thanks for your time and submissions!
You can be successful and get any job or position you want in this short timeframe by following these guidelines.
15+, male or female, anyone who is looking to make a position transition (entry-->mid-->senior levels), anyone who is looking for a immediate job, or anyone looking for a career. Some things can help a young adult in high school or college, and some things are aimed at adults and mid/senior management in regards to what wine to bring as a guest or how to appropriately grease the wheels, etc.
Looking for warm colors that are safe and friendly, but still pop out to someone scrolling. In relation to creativity, Just something that tells the story, you can be successful and get any job or position you want in this short timeframe by following these guidelines. I am not the creative type in this medium, so with the exception of the 99d pre made covers I referenced, I have no clue what I want it to look like. I will know which one is right when I see it. It should be a professional cover, but it should also pop out to prospective readers.
What to avoid
Still putting the finishing touches on book before it goes to the editor this morning. The "48," in reference to the hours it takes, may change to 24, or 36, etc. I will know for sure by this afternoon.
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.
King2017 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
