Gateway to Abyssinia
Former US military officer currently based in the Middle East managing commercial aviation operations.
A team of archaeologists are involved in an archaeological expedition in Adulis on the coast of Eritrea. The expedition is attacked by a group of terrorosts supported by an attack helicopter which forces Jordan and Senait to evacuate the archaeologists up a mountainous valley to safety in the Eritrean highlands.
Young men and women readers interested in action adventure books including some military theme, archaeology, history, Africa.
Book cover type
I have attached a number of files including a test cover done by a friend that I like with some exceptions (Including the spelling of the book name). I wanted the cover to include an African woman (Eritrean/Ethiopian) running alongside the man, both carrying AK-47s. They should be running up a valley to escape an attack by a helicopter (Mi24 Hind as shown in the helicopter image) that is shooting machineguns and missiles at them. The test cover includes a Axumite obelisk as is found in Eritrea/Ethiopia and which is mentioned in the book. They should be wearing civilian clothing (Khakhi/tan/jeans/boots) and NOT military since they are archaeologists.
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.
mathewss 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.
