graemesb got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Design a book cover for a Christmas best-seller!
Check out graemesb's Book cover contest…
Graeme Stone lost a brother, father and mother by the time he was 31. Rather than being the "Seven Year Curse" he thought it was, it transformed his understanding of just how short — and precious — each day is.
Every day, Max Sharp takes the same train. But today is different, it might be his last. When a train conductor gives him a ticket that just says: Tomorrow Max embarks on a journey that will change him forever, a journey open to each of us. Every day. Take the Ticket and go along for the ride.
Men and women 18-80, married with kids, family people, maybe even spiritual or religious though religious outlook not necessary.
Book cover type
The book's climax is at Christmas, but it's beginning is aboard a commuter train from the suburbs. Maybe something with a railroad tracks, the snow, Christmas imagery, Christmas lights or reflections. The story is about a man grappling with very complex family challenges. A father, mother, teenage/young-adult son and daughter.
What to avoid
I want clean, bold, emotional, evocative. Avoid overly stylish fonts, overly sentimental imagery. It's a solid family drama.
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.

And then… they selected a winner!
Bob does it again! I had an idea of what I wanted and he makes it better. This is my second book cover with Bob and both times he surpassed my expectations. My books stand out from the rest in my competition on Amazon. Bob is patient, professional, and accommodating. Thank you again Bob! I hope to be able to hire you again in the future!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
