What's your vision?
The book is a humor/farce fiction book about a private investigator who is hired by a New York ad agency to find a missing presentation. Although this is a (supposedly) funny, I think it would be funny to have serious looking cover considering all the title and some of the supplementary text. I don’t want just one image that bleeds all the way across the back. I am looking for a cover design and then a back and a spine design. Things that would interest me in the cover: A portfolio case (a photo is provided), boardroom (of an office), anything related to an advertising agency. Something funny (that may happen in an office) Things that would turn me OFF: Most things that have to do with classic private investigator stuff like: magnify glass, finger print, trenchant, fedora, etc. The cover should be easily to read the title at a thumbnail size, like on Amazon. Front over text: B.M.’s Gift How Red Burtley Saves Furtz & Farlane Advertising Book One of The Madison Avenue Trilogy (put a top) A Novel by Chase Watchman Back cover text: I tried again to get my tender, sweet delicious ass between those two bookcases, but it just wouldn’t fit. Honest, it wouldn’t. I took off my belt because it was getting in the way. It kept catching onto one of the bookcases. I tried again, but I was still having trouble. I then took off my shirt to see if that would help. Penis Pete taught me that trick. He said, “If you’re ever in a situation where having all of your clothes on isn’t getting you anywhere, try taking some things off.” That was some good advice Penis Pete had, better than, “Save time and hassle at the doctor’s office by sitting in the waiting room fully naked. That way you’re ready when they call you.” Extra text (either front or back): A classic mystery. Not one fart joke.
Not necessary, but nice to have A logo that looks like someone getting frisked. The logo would either be placed on the front cover or the back. Please bear in mind. This is just an idea for a logo, not the cover design.

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.
AshNero 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.
