JJCookbooks got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Deliciously nutritious desserts - cookbook cover
Check out JJCookbooks's Book cover contest…
Food & Drink
Hi, we're JJ (central European time zone). We research nutrition and are self-publishing a book of dessert recipes that are delicious and healthful. The target audience: chocoholics, or home kitchen enthusiasts who want great desserts without dentists, diabetes or allergies. Generally people who are not afraid to experiment and spend time in the kitchen.
What's your vision?
A book cover for a cookbook titled "Nature's Bounty: A Treasury of Nourishing Dessert Delights". It features 21 favorite recipes without sugar/artificial sweeteners, wheat/gluten, dairy, alcohol, vegetable oil and artificial additives (basically everything in most of today's unhealthy desserts). We would like to emphasize this list ("without sugar ... additives") on the cover because it is one of the main points. There are also 33 'Freakonomics for the kitchen' sidebars (ice cream physics instead of additives, a timing trick that lets us eat more dessert, how much chocolate gives maximum benefit). The sidebars are carefully researched, with 160 citations to scientific articles. This is unusual for cookbooks, so it would be good to mention something like "Backed by 160 scientific references". Ideally a cover would remind us of some of these descriptions: natural, simple colors found in nature (no neon pink), uncluttered. Looks we'd rather avoid: intricate/fancy, too cute/childish, scary, geeky, "mad scientist". It would be good to have space for at least 3 different photos to show "bounty" (= many). We've attached some 'candid' photos and will add better ones. There's also lots of text, and we'd like to keep it readable (simple fonts rather than handwritten/cursive).
The image should be 1875 x 2850 pixels (PNG format is preferred). We will offer a PDF version, ebook and possibly also print. As promised, we have guaranteed the contest. If we like a cover, we will provide private feedback :)
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.

It all began with a design brief.

And then… they selected a winner!
Elena is one of the very best in the business. Easy to work with, nothing is a problem and she seems to know instinctively what will work for my books. Highly recommend.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
