jgaspard got their new book cover by running a design contest:
The Sword & Mr. Stone -- a modern day search for Excalibur
Check out jgaspard's Book cover contest…
The Sword & Mr. Stone
A modern-day businessman is pulled into a wild search for King Arthur's sword, Excalibur.
People interested in humor and fantasy.
The image in my mind: A frazzled businessman, in a rumpled suit, either pulling the sword from a stone .... or holding it up, like he just pulled it from the stone. Surrounding imagery would include a dragon, Stonehenge, a beautiful blonde woman (a librarian, so very conservative). The cover should be very evocative, but also a little bit humorous, so that readers know this story is also funny. Format should be 6x9. I will need complete Photoshop (layered) file when finished.
What to avoid
I don't want it to look cartoony.
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.
jgaspard 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.
