The job was to design a print and ebook book cover for a new popular psychology book. Tanja's first design impressed me so much - she had taken elements of what I had asked for in the brief but added twists and made it so much more beautiful and 'right' for the book than I'd imagined. She has been incredibly responsive to feedback and ideas and the final design is absolutely perfect. Thanks so much Tanja!
After an outstanding initial project with Maria, we commissioned her for a larger project consisting of 8 illustrations. I could not possibly be more impressed or more happy with the process! The artwork itself is visually stunning, and Maria consistently had excellent creative ideas to effectively convey our key concepts. She was also super responsive and positive to requests for small updates as we worked towards finalizing each design. If you have the chance to work with Maria, you absolutely should!

I am looking for six (6) illustrations for an upcoming popular science book about the "Theory of Everything". Each illustration is supposed to start a different chapter, all in all the book will have six chapters. Each illustration should feature a different main colour that will be the general colour scheme of that chapter. The name of the chapter should not be included in the illustration, the graphics should speak for themselves. The illustrations should be somehow "allegoric". Please have a look at a contest I did some time ago: http://99designs.de/illustrations/c…ion-134844
These are the six chapters:
- Classical physics (Newton, mechanics...)
- Quantum theory (Schrödinger etc.)
- General relativity (Einstein etc.)
- Standard Model of particle physics
- String theory, Superstring theories und M-Theory (Hawking etc.)
- Loop quantum gravity
We start with max two illustrations first. In the second phase, I will chose the preferred styles and we will work on the remaining four illustrations.
Technically, the images must be 2048 x 1536 pixels.
I may buy additional, single illustrations also from non-winners if they fit the chapter.
