MyPillStory got their new book cover by running a design contest:
#MyPillStory – Cover for a book with stories about negative side effects of hormonal contraceptives
Check out MyPillStory's Book cover contest…
Medical & Pharmaceutical
The book is about negative side effects from taking the pill and other hormonal contraceptives. Target audience are women between 20 and 35 who take the contraceptive pill and might suffer from side effects (such as: headaches, migraine, depression, no desire for sex, gaining weight, etc.) without realizing. The book has 30-40 real stories plus additional background information about hormonal contraceptives and how to stop using them.
What's your vision?
I need a cover for a German ebook (ePub, Kindle and PDF) and print (paperback print-on-demand). The title '#MyPillStory' comes from a hashtag and trend on Twitter, where women told the world about negative side effects from taking hormonal contraceptives. Target audience is women between 20 and 35. The design should be youthful, but not playful, for an internet-affine audience. It shouldn't look too serious like a book made for medical students. Colors shouldn't be pink or purple. They should convey a feeling of caution/alertness. Maybe red/yellow, but it's up to you. Title: #MyPillStory Subtitle: Geschichten vom Frust mit der Pille (Stories about frustrations with the pill) You could add something like a "tag cloud" with typical side effects (just an idea, it's optional). These are (in German): Kopfschmerzen, Migräne, Antriebslosigkeit, depressive Phasen, keine Lust auf Sex, Pilzinfektionen, Übelkeit, Blasenentzündungen, Wassereinlagerungen, Gewichtszunahme, Thrombosen The cover should have an illustration (I prefer flat design, no 3D, not skeuomorphic, no photos). Please surprise me with whatever comes up in your mind about: stop taking the pill & negative side effects in the body.
Important Update: If you add a pill illustration, don't use a capsule pill, because the contraceptive pill is round. Capsules are for antibiotics or other medications. It's irritating. See attached file with covers I found here. These are styles I like. Flat, nice colors, nice fonts. Cover-Format eBook: The eBook version will be published to Kindle, Google Books, iBooks (and others) via ePubli. Format should be the usual portrait in 1.5 dimension (e. g. 3000x4500 px). Cover-Format Print: 13.5cm x 20.5cm

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.

And then… they selected a winner!
It was a pleasure to work with this designer. Communication was perfect, all change requests were done in a matter of hours. I received all files I requested and even more (various 3D versions of the book cover). Would work again with this designer. Thank you!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
