What's your vision?
I need a book cover for my fiction book. This is what it is about: My River Sanctuary is the story of a Chinese Australian woman, Kim Chen, who is descended from the first Chinese immigrants to Western Australia in the 1880s. On the banks of the Swan River in Perth she continues her father’s legacy of growing Chinese vegetables on a plot of land he has inhabited for as long as she can remember. She has a son, Ayden, born to her first love, Jack, the boy next door who has left her for an adventurous life as an army photographer in Afghanistan. Kim struggles to keep her farm profitable in the suburbs of Perth during a recession while the rest of the state is enjoying a mining boom. With the assistance of the Immigration Department, she enlists the help of Ara, an Afghan refugee awaiting release into the community. Kim’s dream is to develop a world garden, a garden that encompasses plants from the countries of all the migrants who have settled in Perth, and create a self-sustaining business from the produce. She faces opposition from her competitors, her neighbours, and eventually must fight to save her identity, her son and her land. END I'd like you to use the image I have provided to create a cover that is a little mysterious.
Please use the image, the logo (on the spine and on the back), and the back cover text (which is on the sample I have given you to follow). I'm happy for you to come up with different ideas regarding the text. The text on the back should be smaller than on the sample. Please leave space for the barcode (as on the sample). I need a high-resolution print PDF and jpg for the final. Specs: 5 inches x 8 inches with a 0.545 inch spine Please note the text on front, spine and back as provided on the sample cover. Please put the logo on the spine and on the back (quite small)

It all began with a design brief.

And then… they selected a winner!
Elena is one of the very best in the business. Easy to work with, nothing is a problem and she seems to know instinctively what will work for my books. Highly recommend.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
