Liu.kevin.k got their new book cover by running a design contest:
New book or magazine cover wanted for Craft Cocktails at Home
Check out Liu.kevin.k's Book cover contest…
Food & Drink
An unconventional cocktail book full of offbeat techniques and recipes hacked with science. Targeted at home mixologists, but a must-own for working bartenders.
What's your vision?
I would like the book cover to be clear at a glance that it is about cocktails, but that the tips and recipes contained inside are different from those found inside a standard cocktail recipe book. Topics range from using differential equations to calculate dilution to how to fake scotch whisky with household ingredients. The cover should fit a standard 6"x9" paperback format. More importantly, it needs to be designed for digital media - that is, easily readable when displayed as a thumbnail on a blog or on Amazon. Color designs are acceptable, but the cover should convert well to greyscale, as eReaders are a major target of the book. The content of the book will be greyscale. A back cover design is appreciated, but not required. The back cover will consist mostly of text.
The attached cover design is a very rough and poorly-designed sketch I put together. Do not feel the need to emulate my design in any way - if I liked it, I wouldn't be on 99designs. The most important part of my sketch is the tagline - "offbeat techniques, contemporary crowd-pleasers, and classics hacked with science." The cover design needs to support the ideas behind the tagline, be it through illustration or well-placed typography. With that being said, I am very open to changes in the tagline, as long as the overall spirit of the ideas remains.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at HK$2,399.

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.
Liu.kevin.k 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.
