luke.harrisgallahue got their new book cover by running a design contest:
The Power of Presence - Book Cover - Cover Has To Be BOLD!
Check out luke.harrisgallahue's Book cover contest…
Business & Consulting
Book Title: The Power of Presence Book Description: Increase your performance, raise the quality of your relationships, and level up your happiness. NOTE- Book title and description will be subject to change, these are placeholder titles. My book is a tactical guide designed to increase the readers work performance, improve their relationships, and increase their happiness. All by living a present lifestyle. I am targeting entrepreneurs ages 25-45.
What's your vision?
I want the cover to be bold. Not complicated, simple and to the point. It should have a color scheme that pops. Again the simpler the better, I don't want it complicated. Feel free to play with the formatting of the text, I have no particular preference in regards to how that is structured. One of the example Books I provided below, "Without Their Permission" does not have any words on the cover, I like this and would like to explore that option as well. See if you can incorporate that into the cover. The back of the book can provide them the description. The back of the book will include some quotes from people and a short description of the book. Please incorporate that into the design as well. You can use placeholder text for that. The goal is for someone to be scrolling through Amazon, see the thumbnail, and stop to check it out. Then ultimately buy the book. (It should pop as a thumbnail!)
Here are some examples of book I like: So Good They Cant Ignore You - http://www.amazon.com/Good-They-Cant-Ignore-You/dp/1455509124/ref=pd_rhf_dp_s_cp_4?ie=UTF8&dpID=51IjORMFLkL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_SL500_SR89%2C135_&refRID=0YYJX2D5AC4SEWBZ4Z3J Zero To One- http://www.amazon.com/Zero-One-Notes-Startups-Future/dp/0804139296 Start With Why - http://www.amazon.com/Start-Why-Leaders-Inspire-Everyone/dp/1591846447 Without Their Permission - http://www.amazon.com/Without-Their-Permission-Century-Managed/dp/1455520020/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1458557595&sr=1-1&keywords=alexis+ohanian

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.
luke.harrisgallahue 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!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
