Book cover type
A cover that salutes the Wendigo myth. As you can see from the accepted stories we're open to variations. We want the cover to entice and hopefully disturb on some level. Don't feel limited by the images we included, these were just inspirational. Feel free to think outside the box. Artist's name will appear in the credits portion of the book.
What to avoid
Overly bright colors as this is a Wendigo anthology.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.
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.
Strigidae Publishing 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!
He submitted quickly and was "outside the box" from the very beginning. We ended up fine-tuning the image through the first part of the contest and ended up ending early and going with him because the image was just that good. Very happy with his work!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
