Now I Know Why
Joseph lives and writes in Phoenix Arizona. In addition to poetry, he writes music. He also plays keyboards for solo artist Aaron Allen. His writing often deals with rewriting happy endings for difficult stories from his life. Living with multiple sclerosis and other chronic health conditions, his main goal is to love life as much as possible.
Now I Know Why is a poetry book, a bucket-list project for the author.
Friends and family, chronic illness patients, depression and suicide survivors
Book cover type
A bust of the author, (male, 20s, 5'10", blonde hair). As in the example drawing, he's looking at the reader, but holding a gold quill pen instead of a needle. His heart is glowing gold, with no stitches around it. The background is dark purple almost black. The title and author name should be yellow or gold, a "handwritten" font that isn't elaborate.
What to avoid
Original art only, no flowery cursive fonts
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.
poweruser17 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.

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.
