Winner - Design Artistree
Design Artistree really captured the spirit of our design brief. Thinks with you and also gives helpful and much appreciated feedback when something doesn't work (e.g. color combination, etc.) Highly recommended.

When this designer first submitted a design for my novel, I was so happy that I was practically in tears. As I made recommendations to add elements to the design, the designer was very patient and implemented into the design everything I asked. Further, I learned to trust this designer's artistic judgment, allowing the designer the leeway to fill in the blanks of my own mind. If I didn't like it, it went off the table with no questions asked, and in its place would be something completely fantastic. The designer also provided all the files I needed for present and future reference in a very timely and polite manner. I look very forward to working with this designer again. The experience has left me very artistically fulfilled. I cannot express enough gratitude.

How Jim.boyd1 started their book cover journey

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

I need cover art for an eBook. The book's title is "An Uncommon Vocabulary". It is an A to Z book of common words and phrases that are described in a manner better suited to them in the opinion of the author. In some respects, it is similar to the "Devil's Dictionary" by Ambrose Bierce.
Some ideas for the cover include: A nexus of words and phrases, a professor (not a real person) character with a blackboard, a speaker (penguin) at a podium with a board behind him, an abstract character pondering with a thought cloud above his head, a howling small dog, a textured book background with simple lettering and a fancy border (dark green with gold lettering and border). Some links to stock photos are incuded below, but the design should not include stock pictures,
