mfirnkes got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Cover design: Book about intimacy
Check out mfirnkes's Book cover contest…
Ava M. Levin
I do the project and i am posting this briefing for a (female) writer friend of mine, she is a Book author and intimacy coach.
An essay on how intimacy is created and how we can deepen it. German Title is: "Intimität" ("intimacy") German Subtitle is: "Wie wir zueinander finden" (means something like "How we find each other/how we get closer to each other") Please use German title and subtitle for your design suggestions, see also the hints within visual design briefing. If you have any questions feel free to ask me.
The target group are mainly women, the autor is a women, so the design should reflect this. I'm happy about female designers who can empathize with the project, but that's not a requirement.
Book cover type
I'd like a feminine, eye-catching, clean, bright, some kind of minimalistic, high-quality and not too playful design that fits the target group. Rather illustrated and abstract than with a photo, but maybe you can surprise me. No images of real people please, no comic style. Title and subtitle should be clearly visible. I'm uploading a few covers that I like related to the project, but feel free to make your own suggestions. They are more for inspiration.
What to avoid
It would be great if you create the design elements by yourself. If you use a Stock Photo (what's absolutely ok) then if possible from Adobe Stocks, please pay attention to the appropriate license for all advertising purposes (No license for editorial purposes only). Also please tell me if you use a font where i need to buy a licence (what's also ok). At the end as result of your cover i need a file for photoshop (psd).
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €289.
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.
mfirnkes collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

And then… they selected a winner!
Boja is an amazing designer, especially with Book Covers. She has worked on all my business branding, including social media banners and book covers. I appreciate her design aesthetic and patient communication. Her work is key to my marketing and I highly recommend!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
