caris2 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Part of a three-volume series called "Die Insel der Wale". The covers are meant to match.
Check out caris2's Book cover contest…
Lebe, als gäbe es kein Morgen
Charlotte Taylor is a women's fiction author and the pen name of German journalist and author Carin Müller when she gives herself over completely to love – whether full of tender intimacy or intoxicating passion. Since tingling is only half as nice without real feeling, the story is always at the centre of Charlotte's work – and it can be more complex, despite all the superficial lightness. In real life, Charlotte shares with Carin not only a husband and a dog, but also only one body. And this host body – although quite functional – has by default only two hands, ten fingers and one head. It can be a tight squeeze when it comes to writing the manuscript. www.carinmueller.de - new, exciting blogposts every week, a new podcast episode every fortnight and a brand-new newsletter once a month: https://carinmueller.de/newsletter
Zwei Menschen, eine Leidenschaft: Orcas! Aber reicht das, um die tiefen Wunden beider zu heilen? Wale sind Reed Archers große Leidenschaft und zusammen mit seiner dreizehnjährigen Tochter Grace sein ganzer Lebensinhalt. Nach einem tragischen Schicksalsschlag fühlt er sich endlich bereit für eine neue Liebe. Wenn die Vergangenheit nicht ruhen will, können Rückschritte auch Fortschritte sein. Kiona Brooks will zurück in ihrer Heimat endlich alte Wunden heilen und herausfinden, was genau die Orcas ihr zu sagen haben. Eine abenteuerliche Kajak-Tour zu den Walen vor der winterlichen Küste Vancouver Islands schweißt die beiden auf unwiderstehliche Art zusammen. Doch wollen sie auch dasselbe? Ein mitreißender Roman voller Gefühl und mit wichtigen Themen: fesselnd, bewegend und fürs Herz.
Core target group: Women between 25 and 55, medium to higher education, versatile interests, political, well-read, lives in Germany (Austria & Switzerland), loves to travel. Likes books like "Not forgetting the whale", "Where the crawdads sing" and intelligent love stories.
Book cover type
Perhaps a stylised whale silhouette (humpback whale) could be incorporated? Overall, I'd rather have a more abstract image motif than one that is too concrete. But basically I am open to everything.
What to avoid
The cover of "Lebe, als gäbe es kein Morgen" (part 1 of the series - also needs to be redesigned!) is an example of how NOT to look. No lovers on the title, not too concrete.
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.
caris2 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.
