kath 5 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Inspire me with a futuristic book cover for a series called: The Future Makers.
Check out kath 5's Book cover contest…
I am a former journalist, and I now work as a professional trainer, mentor and writer in the field of content marketing. This book series will incorporate 10 authors from a particular industry. Each author is an entrepreneur and founder or CEO of a company. They are handpicked because they are doing something important in their industry that is contributing to change. Each author will sell or give the books to their clients who will be medium-sized to large companies. It's important that the design has a futuristic feel. I'm looking for edgy design. Something unpredictable, but it still has to appeal to the corporate market.
What's your vision?
Book-cover mock-ups with 3-D representation. The first of the titles in a series. Visual guidelines • Futuristic, modern, edgy, dramatic, exciting. • Please use the corporate colours from my website: email@example.com. There are lots there. • Dramatic impact • Edgy, but still appeals to corporate market • A geometric feel to the overall design • Clean and crisp • Large san serif text for main title and five heading levels • Needs to have a "this is the future of design" feel to it. Purpose These mock-ups will be used to sell the idea to contributors. Book Size W 150mm x H 230mm with a 15mm spine.

[Examples] I don’t like the aesthetics, but the concept is similar to what I have in mind http://www.amazon.com/Secrets-Marketing-Experts-Exposed-Series-ebook/dp/B004G5Z3BQ I like the impact of this book cover, but don’t want black Connect http://jane-anderson.com.au/connect-how-to-leverage-your-linkedin-profile-for-lead-generation and-business-growth/ I have attached a cover that I consider quite edgy -- I don't want the same thing, but I am trying to give some meaning to the word. Here are the aesthetics that I like.
