alijoel got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Old-School beach Cruiser, Tandem bike for hopeful adoption story-book cover
Check out alijoel's Book cover contest…
This is a book about adoption-audience is perspective adoptive parents (ages 25-45), Christian.
What's your vision?
Included on cover: Title: Tandem: A Devotional for Adopting with God in the Lead Author: Alison England Overall Feel: Looking for seamless integration of images and font. I am liking the color scheme in the tiles that is below (pier green-bright blues). I want the cover to be bright and hopeful and crisp. The old-school cruiser has a beach feel, but the setting does NOT necessarily need to be the beach, it could just be a more plain background to make the image 'pop.' Feature image: (NEED HIGH RESOLUTION images) I would like an old-school tandem bike to feature the cover. I am thinking to use the 'T' handle bars below (on the singe cruiser) somehow to connect or make the 'T' in the title Tandem. Font: (NEED FONT EMBED) I want the title bold, clear and simple font-no script. I would like the title texturized (maybe the handle bars/'T' to be textured). This will require some custom art work, not just stock pictures. Examples similar to what I am looking for are the book 'Lab Girl' below. I like the 3D effect. I want something my reader can feel and touch and be part of. The tiles below give the same effect, in which they bubble up from the surface. I want the subtitle to be readily seen 'A devotional for adopting with God in the lead' (bold, highlight, capitalized, large font) not sure how, just clear. I have included 4 book covers that I like in the references. Crisp, Simple, Fun, Hopeful Update: The submssions so far have included stock photos of a tandem bike with gears/basket. I need the tandem bike to be without gears and basket, and have the very old school handle bars. AND NO PEOPLE on bike. Update: I will also need to see the back cover/spine ideas. I have included the picture I would like to see on back cover. Will also need space for brief explanation of book/author bio. Update: Looking for more of a custom look, not cut and paste of stock photos. Update: Please look at reference image from amazon of the other 2 books that I am in competition with. It will be important that my cover stand apart from those 2 covers. Update: PLease take a look at my reference picture titled "old school beach cruiser" for the handle bars and look I am seeking for this Tandem bike. I included 2 sketches at bottom for ideas I tried to explain in words, but maybe needed to provide a picture of what is in my brain. Update: Question for designers: I am asking for an old school tandem beach cruiser, but no one has yet submitted the image I am looking for. Is there not an old school tandem beach cruiser stock photo (see reference photo-Old school beach cruiser)? I want this bike (notice the handelbars), as a tandem in a bright color. Update: ADDed IMPORTANT reference pictures for background scenery, please take a look at the 'Classic Tandem' photo~this is the kind of bike I am looking for. Also, for scenery covers please reference the Descanso cove, cove bike path photos. For covers that are going with a more simple solid color background, please look at the 0126 & 0276 shots with for background ideas. Also please look at the succulents that I am hoping to have a hint of and also the Catalina tile design. I also included a swath of the pier green color I like. UPDATE: will need a designer who has experience making the ebook cover also. Will privately negotiate a price for the ebook version
