Mcasey1 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create an awesome book cover for the new book Forward Story
Check out Mcasey1's Book cover contest…
Target audience is anyone from ages 15 to 99 who is facing a new phase of life, is growing into adulthood, or who just wants to take more control of how their life ends up.
What's your vision?
I need a full color book cover designed for a soft cover book sized 6" x 9". It is approximately 305 pages. The title of the book is Forward Story: Write the Future You Desire. The book is written as a positive encouragement to people of all ages to take control of their futures and to create a story for how they want their lives to turn out. The FRONT COVER should include: * the title and sub-title - Forward Story: Write the Future You Desire * the author name: Mark L. Casey * smaller text under the author's name: "Foreword by David L. Duke, PhD" * It should also include a photo or graphic that communicates the hopeful message that it is possible to take control of your life and future and to be purposeful about how you live and how your life turns out. The SPINE of the cover should include the title Forward Story and the author's name: Mark L. Casey. The BACK COVER will include: * a paragraph of sales copy about the book (this has not yet been written so please use some dummy text for now) * It will also include from two to four quotes from readers about the book. * It needs to include my bar code * Finally, the back cover will have a small photo of the author and a brief bio (yet to be written - please use dummy text)
I am open to a photo that starts on the front cover and extends to the spine and back cover or to any other graphical concept that communicates the positive and encouraging message that people can take control of their own lives and drive them where they want to go. The book deals honestly with the fact that dark clouds and difficulties will come to each person, but that with a good plan these challenges can be overcome and that each person can create a meaningful future. Possible winning concepts * could * include: * two paths in the forest where the viewer realizes the need to select one or more options. * It could include a vantage point from on high where the viewer gets the idea of being able to see a long way - a heightened or elevated vantage point. * It could be any concept that implies ambition, achievement, or success (Even if not just financial success). * It could involve any imagery regarding a trip or journey (train, boat, car, bike, foot, etc. ) * Since the title is Forward Story, it could also possibly include some concept that incorporates the idea of a story or storybook. I do have a new logo that I may choose to incorporate onto the book cover, but at this point I do not want to share that because I am looking for creativity in the cover design. Once I select the winning designer, we may look for a way to incorporate the logo design in the the cover. Please let me know what questions arise. You are going to help me have a successful book by creating a terrific cover. Thank you for participating!

Responsive, intuitive, excellent to work with. I'm so grateful for Poppins work on my book cover. Right from the first concept, she seemed to "get" this project and was relentless in getting the design exactly right. A pleasure to work with throughout. I can't highly recommend her enough. Thank you!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
