Sarithamalhar is a fantastic designer who understood the brief and carefully took into account each piece of feedback. I'm really happy with the end result. Highly recommended!
I've run three 99Designs competitions, and Bondz.Carbon was among the most responsive designers and easiest to work with that I've ever encountered on the site.
Great work product, quick turnaround and very good about seeking clarification for any design elements that aren't clear.
I would recommend Bondz.Carbon as much for the design skill as the work experience!

The front cover should have rain falling pretty much straight down. I want it in dark blues, grays, and blacks. The back cover needs to match my picture of the Jessica with the angle of the rain. It needs to be one-point perspective.
On what will be the back cover, there's going to be a spaceship (a modernized one that doesn't look like some retro Roswell B movie thing but patterned off of the Blackbird from the X-Men movies or an F-22, only large enough to be a space shuttle.) I included an image I made in Sketchbook pro. I'd like it to look cooler and more photorealistic, I guess, while maintaining the general dimensions. The windscreen needs to be at least this big. However, I want it to maintain a smooth appearance, not like a 3-D image pasted over an actual photograph of a rainstorm.
The working title is Ode to Atlantis. The 'A' in Atlantis needs to be a triangle composed of six dots on each side. I'm not sure wether I want a metallic gray font or white. I want the image of the spaceship to pull double-duty as an HD wallpaper as well.
The attached 'rain' picture kind of captures the feel I'm looking for and the color. It just needs to be hurricane force rain.
