Scott.prath got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Help us reach teachers of children with special needs by designing this book cover
Check out Scott.prath's Book cover contest…
We are a group of speech pathologists who work with children with impairments. We write books and create materials to use with the families and children that we serve. This book is designed for speech pathologists and educators to work with students who have high needs (e.g. autism, down syndrome, mobility impairments).
What's your vision?
We want a cover for our book designed. I have attached a temporary cover that we put together to do the print proof. It is heading in the right direction, clean-bright, but is a bit bland/flat. It includes the needed text. To keep in mind: this book is Volume 1 of 3 so the design will stay similar, maybe with a change in colors so that something eventually unites the set of books. We are self-publishing the book so we would need it in a format that we can manipulate and upload.
These are the other books, or, where what our product will be displayed with to give you an idea of the industry: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=life+skills Attached is a picture that we purchased that we like. You can use it and or more pictures. If I had to describe what I "want" it would be that the design is clean and modern. It would have a photo, not a drawing. It would have color but not be overwhelming. Here are some examples of what we like that are from the same profession. With these examples we hope to convey the sense or feeling that these books esthetically give us, not necessarily wanting a replica of the content. http://www.amazon.com/Special-Education-Video-Enhanced-Pearson-Loose-Leaf/dp/0133400824/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1412356703&sr=1-1&keywords=special+education http://www.amazon.com/800-Measurable-IEP-Goals-Objectives/dp/1477464840/ref=sr_1_9?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1412356842&sr=1-9&keywords=special+education http://www.amazon.com/Routines-Based-Early-Intervention-Supporting-Children/dp/1598570625/ref=sr_1_8?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1412356975&sr=1-8&keywords=early+intervention

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.
Scott.prath 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.
