What's your vision?
I’d like someone to design a cover for my second book on game design and development. This is the link for the first book – http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FLevel-Zero-Mobile-Coding-Required-ebook%2Fdp%2FB0188LDZ86%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fie%3DUTF8%26qid%3D1448924344%26sr%3D8-1%26keywords%3Dlevel%2B0%2Bbuild%2B5%2Bgames&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNE_DuU9UzBwpI3wWUbvHZNzPFpLTw I want the second book to be similar to the design principles followed by the first. However I want it to look like an old Nintendo controller like in this book. http://www.amazon.com/Level-Up-Gene-Luen-Yang/dp/1596432357/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1448925089&sr=8-2&keywords=level+up We need to be careful not to violate any copyright laws so you will need to modify your design slightly so we are not taking exact image... design should be similar but not exact. If you use royalty free stockphotos, that should be OK. But DO NOT copy design outright. I want front, back and side cover designed. It should be for both Kindle and Print. Book size is 6" x 9". Book spine width is TBD. Assume 276 pages for now. Here it is the final deliverable for Kindle: -1500 X 2400 pixels (1000 w X 1600 h is OK) -72 ppi (pixel per inch) -file type is JPEG -Use this tool to generate cover for paperback book (print): https://www.createspace.com/Help/Book/Artwork.do (Assume black & white without bleed and white paper + 276 pages) The name of the book will be Level One: Build 3 Classic Arcade Games in Just 3 Days. No Coding Required. [Similar format as the first book]. For text, put in filler text for now. We will send final copy once winner is selected.

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.
Praankur 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.
