rdmerlini got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create a book cover for "Dogs that Can't Even" of Tumblr
Check out rdmerlini's Book cover contest…
Animal & Pet
This is a picture book of dogs that can't even. A picture is paired with a caption, collected from over 280 Tumblr dog bloggers, featuring a dog in a funny pose. Target audience are millennials, anyone following dogs on instagram, and others who enjoy dogs. Between 10% and 50% of book profits will go to a top performing animal shelter.
What's your vision?
Required: a white/ light background a dog making an eye-catching/funny expression centered The cover should not come off as a "gag" book, but an aesthetically pleasing book you'd like on your coffee table, simple, colorful, and hilarious. Text to include: Title: Dogs that Can't Even Do not put my name as the author Nothing below is set in stone: I'd like the style to be watercoler/ splatter, similar to the style of the picture of the colorful dog lying down. I'd like the image to look realistic. I don't want the dog to look too much like a cartoon because the photos inside are real dog photos. Optional text (could go on back of book): 50% profits from this book go to top performing animal shelters Explanation of examples: the image should be one of a funny looking dog: the attached image of the dog swimming for example, or the top half of the third image (the dog looking over its shoulder). Use the full body or just it's head. I'm very, very open and would encourage you to pick your own photos to manipulate outside those I attached. If you prefer to draw, go for it, as long as the image is realistic looking. "Dogs that Can't Even" is the title, I'll be using Avenir Next Condensed Ultra Light font throughout the book (not required for the cover) Book will be hardcover, 6 inch by 6inch, and sold in print.
The inside pages of the book are minimalistic - black text captions on white background. However they increasingly accumulate colorful splatter paint and pawprints by the end, so I'd like the cover to hint at the colorfulness that is inside. I think it may be easiest to photoshop a dog picture that already exists - If you need to purchase the image that you're using for whatever reason I'm willing to pay around $20 on top of the prize for that.
