Entertainment & The Arts
I run a website, facebook group and write articles on the hobby of autograph collecting, both in person at baseball/football games and movie premieres, and through the mail.
What's your vision?
I am looking for a book cover (front and back with variable spine spine width) for a non-fiction book on autograph collecting. Title: Autograph Collecting Secrets Subtitle: Tools and Tactics for Through-The-Mail, In-Person and Convention Success This will be published through CreateSpace at a standard 9"x6" size. Author: Troy A Rutter Foreword by: Jack Smalling Front Cover Details: The subject of the book is modern autograph collecting, so please refrain from parchment/pen designs. For copyright reasons, I don't think I can use any photographs of actual celebrities on the cover or their autographs. Some ideas include: images of people holding up photos in the air movie premiere fans behind a barricade Non-identifiable celebrity signing autographs Note: Any images must be in the public domain or available for purchase/license for less than $100. Please AVOID cliches such as the logo from "The Secret" or merely the title being wrote out with a pen/quill. I am open to creative, professional designs. I don't really see any similar topics on 99 designs, so do not have any I would recommend for inspiration. For the back: Carry over the color/design from the front, allowing for actual text in a separate layer that will come later. Should include a space for my photo and bio at the bottom, and usual ISBN/copyright information.
I realize this is a fairly broad description, but I am open to creative ideas. Again, please avoid the title being written in pen/quill, and avoid using knock-offs of The Secret. Target demographic is younger 15-30 typically, so cover should reflect a younger demo and not be a typical "professional development" business book cover.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
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.
trutter 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.
