vapeandjuiceuk got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Don't let this book cover be ignored

Not another prison diary
A prison diary written in a humourous but dark at times tone. Talking about the experience of an ordinary man dealing with an unordinary mistake, now deep in the bowls of the UK prison system.
20-40 something's professionals. More female than male
A better version of what I've already designed. This can be seen on the Amazon books sections when you type in the name of the book. I like simple solid cover colour, so it looks like a diary. Would be great if someone had lovely hand writing and could take a photo of an actual diary on a solid colour and use that real image as the cover.
What to avoid
Avoid not looking at the current cover attached. Do NOT use other people's work.
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.
vapeandjuiceuk 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!
Used her initiative for the contest by asking for a personal image to assist in the designing of a book cover that is an autobiography.
No one else did this and the outcome was a much more personalised piece of work.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
