Winning at Retirement: Add Graphic to Existing Cover
Check out pfoleyX's Book cover contest…
Winning at Retirement: A Guide to Health, Wealth & Purpose in the Best Years of Your Life
Patrick Foley & Kristin Hillsley
Authors are financial planners.
This is an update (new edition) of an existing book / cover. So rather than a full redesign we will need an edit of the existing design. Specifically adding the words "Law Enforcement Edition" below the subtitle line of the book, and adding a police badge overlay on the existing cover image.
This edition of the book will be targeted to retiring police / law enforcement officers.
Book cover type
As described above, this is an update to an existing cover, specifically for a new edition targeted at retiring members of law enforcement. As such, the color and style is already set. The addition of a police badge will be the primary challenge for the designer. I will want a badge whose style integrates well with the existing image and colors. I have uploaded some examples of badges, but am not married to any specific style at the moment. I am uncertain of the verbiage (if any) that should appear on the badge. Maybe "American Police" or simply "Police"
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.
pfoleyX 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.
