I can not wait to do another book with this illustrator. She is wonderful to work with!
I received over 300 designs for the book cover. It was a difficult choice for me to select the finalists. From the final designs I would have been happy with each and every one. #306 won the contest because the book cover is essentially selling a book and the design by nalll is superior in its relevant aspects (color pallet, typography, readability of the blurb). On the shelf my book now manages to get attention - thanks to Nall. Nalll very accurately and timely executed fine tuning of the design during handover.
Great designer. I'm very happy with the end product.
We really appreciate your work.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I am a writer planning to self-publish a book of entertaining essays about family. The book will be available on Amazon, e-readers and on my website. My audience is readers who enjoy essays.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a full book cover designed, back cover, spine and front cover.
The title is Planes, Trains and Chuck & Eddie and is a book of lighthearted, humorous essays about family. I want the cover to be fun and engaging. Something that jumps out at people when they are searching on Amazon for a book or at bookstore.
I am sharing some book covers I found that I like so you can see the style of cover I am looking for.
I have three photos I want on the cover: a train, an airplane and Chuck & Eddie. I also want a fun font that reflects the tone of the book.
The size of the book is 5"x 8" with a spine of .2252"
I'd like my name on the cover: Kerrie L. Flanagan
Barcode on back cover: lower right side
This cover is supposed to represent fun, so think outside the box and have fun with the design. I am looking forward to seeing all your creative ideas.
