mark 10E got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Design a head-turning book cover for an upcoming book on writing/being a wordsmith. Book title: "A Wordsmith's Work"
Check out mark 10E's Book cover contest…
This book is a collection of my editorial and public affairs writing over the last three decades.
What's your vision?
I am about to self-publish a book through Amazon. The printed (glossy cover) soft cover will be 6 inches wide and 9 inches high. The cover design should be creative but standard for books (title and subtitle & author on front), (title and author last name on spine) and (about 100 words of text and small head shot of author on back).
PLEASE: NO PHOTOS OF BLACKSMITHS IN YOUR DESIGN. The concept of a "wordsmith" is something like a blacksmith. Both jobs require working with raw material to make something better. But if the cover image looked like a history book about blacksmiths, the casual viewer might be confused and pass it by. That's why the cover design should NOT have a photo of a man banging a hammer on a gavel. I have uploaded an anonymized photo that is the photo that will appear in a small place on the back. Use that FPO and delineate a section on the back for three blurbs of praise for the book and 50 words or so "about the author. (see photo for an example - it doesn't have to look exactly like the example, I'm just showing you the concept."
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
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.
mark 10E 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!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
