No specific design in mind, quite like the Indianna Jones or Doc Savage type pulp art, or art neuveau type artwork of Alfonse Muchabut but would also be happy with something completely different as well. Would like some element or styling that could be re-used on the other book covers in this series to make it clear they're all part of the same series.

It's been a real pleasure to work with ex nilo. From initial concept, through the refinement and finishing touches the quality of insight and inspiration has been amazing, the attention to detail has been fantastic and the simple politeness and responsiveness have been everything I could have hoped for.
I will certainly be contacting ex nilo about doing more work for me in the future.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
