Check out L@urence's Book cover contest…
Born in Marseille, Federico Saggio is passionate about Science Fiction and Fantasy. His visceral writing style is strongly marked by his readings by Zelzany (The Chronicles of Amber), R.E. Howard (Conan) or Michael Moorcock (Elric of Melniboné). Besides literature, he is a boxing fan. On the book cover, please keep the text in french: "Né à Marseille, Federico Saggio est passionné de Science-Fiction et de Fantasy. Son style viscéral est fortement marqué par ses lectures de Zelzany (Les Princes d'Ambre), R.E. Howard (Conan) ou encore Michael Moorcock (Le Cycle d'Elric). Outre la littérature, c'est un amateur de boxe anglaise."
"Lululand Ultraviolet" is a science-fiction / anticipation novel. In the near future where humanity has been forced to hide a sun that has become too aggressive behind a thick artificial cloudy mass ... an amnesiac wakes up in an alley, chased by humans who have returned to the animal stage and want his flesh. Very quickly, he realizes that his memories were stolen from him, in a world where memory is now the primary way to control the population. Blurb in french to put on the back cover: « Dans un futur proche où l'humanité a été contrainte de masquer un soleil devenu trop agressif derrière une épaisse masse nuageuse artificielle... un amnésique s'éveille dans une ruelle, pourchassé par des humains revenus au stade animal - et qui en veulent à sa viande. Bien vite, il réalise que ses souvenirs lui ont été volés, dans un monde où la mémoire est désormais le moyen de contrôle premier. »
The target audience is between 25-45 years old, speaks French (France, Canada, Belgium, Switzerland), who likes Sc-Fi novels and steampunk/cyberpunk universes.

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.

And then… they selected a winner!
I found Zelena by looking at her portfolio samples, and thought her work looked attractive. This is my second consecutive project with her now, and I find that not only does she do good work, but she is easy to work with, as well as flexible in offering alternative elements to try in any design. She's a good partner, and productive.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
