What's your vision?
I am looking for a book cover that is modern and innovative for both print and ebook. I will be using the Createspace Platform for paperback and I will need a spine. The dimensions of the book are 5.25'' by 8" and the page count will be 338. I would like to embody a bit or irreverence and counter-culture. A cover that has the same color elements of the pictures attached is preferred; however, I am open to other concepts. I want the readers to feel like they've been invited to wild night club - but have only been permitted a glance. The book cover for Christopher Isherwood's "Goodbye Berlin" or Merritt Tierce "Love Me Back" are a good place to start. I wouldn't mind having a young Hispanic woman on the cover but this concept should be abstract if developed. Also I would like a design that I could thematically carry over multiple titles. In the longterm, I will be publishing more novels and would like to connect the design throughout all. You can visit www.sbgamble.com and get a feel for the style that I'm trying to establish.
I just want my book cover to look like this: http://www.casualoptimist.com/blog/2016/03/08/52-women-book-cover-designers/ and not this: http://lousybookcovers.tumblr.com/ This is the novel's blurb: "Russell, Kat and Leslie are unlikely friends, roommates and tenants in a constellation of Chicago's seedy clubs. Amongst the gritty, illicit nights of Wicker Park their lives scatter and converge in the weeks leading up to an annual underground party called Playnight. This is a party where anything goes and everyone goes. This has inspired legends and stories that last a lifetime. It is a night where friendships could be broken and love could be lost, but one thing remains: the party goes on. It doesn't matter what party you go to, just who you're with when it's over."
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.
SB Gamble 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.
