I am looking for an experienced book cover designer to design the front and back covers and spine for a 6X9 book. (The size has not been finalized, but I would like to get started on basic design so that when all elements are finalized in three weeks, we’ll be ready to go.) It must be in a format ready to upload to Lightning Source ([url removed, login to view]) Please view the design criteria on their website. This is a standard book cover without any specific request such as color, fonts, etc. but must incorporate standard elements such as ISBN and bar code. The book will be published in the US market and design must look like a totally professional book cover design as is typical in that market.
I will provide you the title of the book by PM as well as the description. You will be required to provide at least 3 mockups. Only bids with mockups will be considered. You may also include samples of other book cover designs you have completed.
The design has to be original and not a copy nor a standard template.
Only professional designers please.
We retain all rights to the design and sample work should not be published without our permission.
The book cover will be required in web, print formats as well as the Lighting Source format. Preference will be given to designers with experience with Lightning Source, so if you have experience, please note it and include the cover you designed.
After this project, I will need internal book layout (no graphics, just text formatting and layout for chapters). If you have experience in this area with Lightning Source, let me know for the future project.
