Professional Aesthetics and Creativity - Must look professional to my readers’ eyes. - USE the title and image together if possible 6. Minimalism - Less can be more
What to avoid
1.) If you are using a stock image, make sure it is good and relevant to the book 2.) Avoid using Blues as much as that's what my competitors mostly use. I want to stand out from the competition. (Look at the document I attached) 3.) Also, avoid those cookie-cutter templates and do something different. Like for example, place the author's name somewhere else instead of on the very top or very bottom of the cover.
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.
Bubot 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!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
