The Dream of the Cemetery
I am a novice writer interested in writing long term. I like writing novels and short stories around fantasy, folklore, and daily life. I have a preference for poetic and suggestive art styles for book covers. If I really like your art I may consider reaching out to you directly for my next book (3-6 months)! :)
The book is a straightfoward FANTASY tale about a strange and misty land populated by eerie characters and puzzles; it touches on themes of death, loss and friendship without being too dark or dense about it
The book is for all ages, potentially including children, teens and adults who like fantasy
Book cover type
Other color requirements
Strong preference for white, black or grey
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.
danieloropD 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!
Dinja is a fantastic designer. I had many options to choose from but Dinja made the choice so much easier for me. She responded quickly to any changes I requested and added her own honest opinions to help me with my choices. I will most definitely be working with Dinja again in the near future. She produces simple yet extremely effective designs and made great use of my preliminary ideas, bringing my book cover to life!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
