Check out johnling83's Book cover contest…
John Ling is a Malaysian-born writer based in Auckland, New Zealand. He has worn many hats, working as a television producer, customer-service rep and marketing executive. His articles and stories have appeared in American and British publications, and he was a finalist at the AYA Dream Malaysia Awards, where he was recognised for his efforts in promoting child literacy.
When the son of an American businessman is kidnapped in Malaysia, it marks the beginning of a violent insurgency that pits Shiite Muslims against Sunni Muslims. Khadijah is the enigmatic leader of the Shiite rebels. Driven by visions from God and the gift of prophecy, she leads a fanatical guerrilla army that will stop at nothing to overthrow the old Sunni regime. Maya Raines is the covert operator brought in as part of an international task force to stop Khadijah. Half-Malaysian and half-American, Maya has razor-sharp instincts, and she’s determined to recover the kidnapped boy. From the back alleys and ghettos of the desperately poor to the mansions and hotels of the decadently rich, these two women will play a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. They will struggle to outfight, outthink and outlast each other in a clash for supremacy. As Malaysia teeters ever closer to the edge of collapse, a final confrontation looms. At stake is the very soul of this besieged nation. Who will survive? Who will perish? And who will be transformed into something more?
REBELLION is an international spy/military thriller for fans of Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum. This will be a sensitive and fair portrayal of Islam, breaking away from the negative stereotypes you often see in the news.
I have attached three sample covers/posters with an atmosphere that I really like. Please refer to them for design guidance. Specifically, I am looking for a profile of a female looming large in the foreground (this represents Khadijah). In the background, there will be a silhouette of another woman running with a gun (this represents Maya). Other than that, you are absolutely free to experiment with other design elements. This is a story about war. About religion. About feminism. About cross-cultural understanding. Make it epic and emotional. Give me your BEST and most CREATIVE work. :)
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.
johnling83 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.
