What's your vision?
I would like a book cover designed please, comprising front, spine and back - the full wrap. The book is entitled, 'If Life's Worth Doing It's Worth Doing Well' and Sub-titled '- Finding Sane Fulfillment in an Insane World' by Tony Inman. The book is designed to be inspirational and motivational and is about making the most of your life, using lessons learned from my life story, plus coaching and teachings drawn from many sources. As I do a lot of activities and have built many businesses, I thought the cover could be a montage of photos, depicting the many areas of my life e.g. scuba diving, flying, playing guitar, lecturing, travelling to amazing places. How that montage fits all or part of the page is flexible as long as you can clearly read the title and my name. The images can be sorted as you see fit according to colour contrasts, relevance and your expertise. Any background space could perhaps be sky blue, depicting light, optimism and energy. The back cover I think should be a plain page in navy or midnight blue to create a professional feel to contrast with the fun feel of the cover. I'd like a space left for the barcode on the back and we'd like to include the publisher's icons on spine and back page as per the example image. The font must be legible but could be an artistic or fun style to suit the title. A suggestion for the spine is that the text be in yellow and please that it faces LtoR TtoB so that you can read it when the book is face up on the table. On the back page there is a portrait photo, book spiel and a two line author intro.
My publisher is Emily Gowor of Gowor International Publishing. The book will be in paperback and E-book and I think will be 6" x 9" sized. No cartoons please. The images I've sent are the best I have available. Most are original digital and can be cropped to suit. Some are i-phone or scanned pics, which may not have enough resolution - your call. A link will be provided to contestants to access a dropbox folder with more images.
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.
inmantony collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
