This book is a snapshot of the last 90 days of my life - personally, professionally and globally. Having had a very rough year at work in 2019, and having panic disorder, I had to go out on disability to start a whole new round of medications. This book is meant to somewhat be the same style as a David Sedaris, humorous with real parts as well. I had already booked a cruise so I went with my family and I smuggled weed onto the boat because the alternative makes me too sleepy. Anyway, I hit my pipe on the 4th deck one day, and I just had an enlightening, basically. The work shi&, the other drama, it didn’t matter. I was alive and well as was my family. So I kicked panic’s ass on that cruise ship, on the 4th deck. I am also weaving in what’s going on with COVID-19. The book is dedicated to the people that are my lifelines - and the laugh lines, well that’s self explanatory. My initial thought - and I’m no designer, clearly, was some kind of a hybrid between Jenny Lawson’s cover art style and the Crime Junkie Podcast logo. Maybe a cruise ship with smoke coming from the 4th deck, with some pink latex gloves and a face mask slung over the side, with various sizes and colors of pills scattered about. In other words, those items sum up visually the last 90 days.
Probably millennials, but it’s got enough solid humor in it that pretty much anyone might pick it up, especially if the cover intrigues them.

And then… they selected a winner!
Honestly, I love everything about this design. It completely captures, in a very minimal way, what the whole intent of the book is. Thank you so much!!!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
