I want a "symbol" designed for a Dystopian Trilogy that I am currently in the process of writing. I know this might be a tad hard to explain, so I thought I'd give a bunch of examples to show what I mean!
Basically, all of the best Dystopian novels in the past few years have one thing in common on their covers, and that is great looking symbols that MEAN something to their story on their covers. Here are some examples.
Hunger Games "Mocking Jay" - https://d13yacurqjgara.cloudfront.n…ingjay.png
Atlas Gene (look right above the title) - http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:…HMcRhVkb3Q
All of the divergent books - https://ladygeekgirl.files.wordpres…covers.png
The Legend Novels - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0052RDJAO
Hopefully you understand what I am referring to now. I want something designed that represents a key component in the book I'm writing, that can either BE the centerfold of the covers, or at least be a part of them.
I have attached a detailed description of the layout of my trilogy in the "other" section, so read that first.
I want you to make a symbol, or "logo" for Justice Net. Anything you can think of is fair game. I don't have a particular design in mind. I feel like the arena might be something you can draw inspiration from, but it definitely doesn't HAVE to be a focus at all. Please refer to the examples I've provided, as those are the best preforming covers right now. So I want something that has a similar feel.
Thanks so much!
P.S. Just to clarify in case you are confused. This is NOT a cover design, but rather just the symbol that will eventually go ON the cover. I will need the layered PSD files from the winner so that I can pass them along to my cover designer. Good luck!
