What's your vision?
We are looking for a cover design for a 7x10 (landscape) hard cover book that is approx. 68 pages. This book will be designed for educators, teachers, medical providers, parents and caregivers. We want this to appear like a children's book. Please note this book will be LANDSCAPE and have about 68-72 inside pages.
While this book is designed for adults to read we want the appearance to be that of a children's book. Front Cover to include: Title: Artistic Expressions of Transgender Youth Author: Tony Ferraiolo Pictures: Mermaid.tiff/Mermaid.jpg AND Freak.tiff/Freak.jpg Primary cover background color: please do not use blues or pinks, a non-gender color such as yellow or light green ——————————————————————————————————— Spine to include: Title: Artistic Expressions of Transgender Youth Author: Tony Ferraiolo Volume: Volume 1 (number one, not roman numeral) ——————————————————————————————————— Back Cover to include: Description: There are plenty of books in existence about transgender youth. There are a lot of good people, trying to give good information, and for the most part they are. But you might be asking yourself what makes this book different than the others. This book is different from the rest because you will be educated directly by transgender children and teens. Not by a medical professional. Not by a life coach. Not even by me. This book will illustrate how transgender children and teens feel and think about themselves, as told through their art. Each drawing is accompanied by a statement where each child describes what their art means to them. My wish for you is to walk away with from this book series with a better understanding of what transgender youth are going through. I want you to see and understand that their struggles are real and need to be acknowledged. I personally know how it feels when you know who you are, but people around you are saying, “No, you're not, that's not who you are.” We can't do this to another transgender child. Too many young lives are lost because these children are not able to express themselves. They are not coming out transgender for attention, to hurt anyone, to embarrass their families – they are coming out because they can’t hold it in any longer and it is who they are.

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.
Tony Ferraiolo 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.

And then… they selected a winner!

We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
