Síntese do concurso

A NY Times bestselling author has recently acquired her backlist rights.
Your name/company will be featured in the credits and on the backside or inside flap of covers.

We are looking for a designer to design 4 covers.
This contest is for 2 books and to evaluate whether the designer can "brand" the author.

This first design must be:
1) high resolution for print
2) high resolution for ebook
3) front and back for print
4) be a NEW and exciting branding of authors name and covers.

Included in the files is a synopsis of the two books and their titles.

We will go thru a process of elimination, where there will be a final 5 entries that the author will work with.

See files for more information.

Thanks for designing for this contest!

      I saw the books on the author website but are different styles, which one has the style you want to bard it?
      I also saw that she already has a book cover for these books. Do you want to republish of those books and a rebranding?

      Let's talk about it and put together in the right place the name of the author, te title and each graphic element. All the graphics elements I added to my covers can be easily edited.

      By clicking on my name you can acces the private chat where we can discuss more details regarding the brandin. I also added my skype adress.

    PLEASE note, we only have 1 week left. Give me your BEST shot based on the information I have provided. I have given some feedback.Utilize Market Deco as the font. Put the author's name on top, title down below. Abstract with vibrant colors - blues for icey, reds and oranges for fall colors of leaves...This is a book cover that you NEED and WANT to be proud of - treat it as your book! Thanks again all who have entered.

    Do you have details of any text for the back cover, or should we use dummy text? Also if you could confirm the dimensions you require for each format that would be helpful. This information doesn't seem to be included in the attached document. Many thanks.

    I have added a file in regards to a cover that the author is using for a prequel in the series called BEFORE EVIL. Please get ideas from it. Thanks!

    Here is the author feedback information regarding seeing some of you covers (for clarification issues1) more about texture than a recognizable icon
    Examples: A PERFECT EVIL
    BLUE and WHITE
    ice, snow, frost, melting ice on glass (or window)

    2) TYPE should be the same for all three but could be manipulated for each.
    Example: A PERFECT EVIL
    could be smeared or have a fogged shadow (faint, not overwhelming)
    ALEX KAVA should always be bigger and use brand name typeface

    3) Drop or smear of blood in the lower righthand corner (similar to WHITEWASH's pb cover).

    OTHER Covers:
    SPLIT SECOND
    ORANGE, YELLOW, REDS
    maybe the entire cover is fall leaves

    A PERFECT EVIL SUMMARY:The brutal murders of three young boys paralyze the citizens of Platte City, Nebraska. What’s worse is the grim realization that the man recently executed for the crimes was a copycat. When Sheriff Nick Morrelli is called to the scene of another grisly murder, it becomes clear that the real predator is still at large, waiting to kill again.

    Morrelli understands the urgency of the case terrorizing his community, but it’s the experienced eye of FBI criminal profiler Maggie O’Dell that pinpoints the true nature of the evil behind the killings—a revelation made all the more horrific when Morrelli’s own nephew goes missing.

    Maggie understands something else: the killer is enjoying himself, relishing his ability to stay one step ahead of her, making this case more personal by the hour. Because out there, watching, is a killer with a heart of pure and perfect evil.

    SPLIT SECOND SUMMARY:

    FBI special agent Maggie O’Dell tracked him for two years, finally ending their game of cate and mouse. Now Albert Stucky has escaped from prison…and he is setting up a new game for Maggie O’Dell.

    Some say Maggie O’Dell has lost her edge as one of the FBI’s best profilers. Since capturing Stucky, she has been walking a tightwire, battling nightmares and guilt over the victims she couldn’t save. Now that Stucky is loose again, she’s been pulled out of the field. But as Stucky’s trail of victims leads closer and closer to Maggie, she is put back on the case under the supervision of Special Agent R. J. Tully. Together they race against the clock to hunt the killer, and Maggie finds herself pushed to the very edge. Has her desire to stop Albert Stucky become a matter of personal vengeance? Has she crossed the line? And has that been Stucky’s goal all along—to make her into a monster?

    Dear eWeb

    I am excited about the project, and am going to submit a final mockup of the project. I am using stock photos that will need to be changed to real stock photos bought from a site such as dreams time and such. Won't be that hard to do. But that way you can get an idea of what I can do. As a fellow Author I understand how hard it can be to brand someone, and looking at Ms. Kava's work I am excited to get to know more of her books.

    Thank you I shall submit tonight!

    Hope to talk to you soon!
