What's your vision?
We need a book cover dust jacket (full hardcover, including back cover, spine, and flaps) designed for an author's fiction thriller novel called The Atlantis Project. Title is still TBD, but please use that as a working title. Author name: Nick Thacker Size: 6" x 9", .75" spine. Require editable, layered, .psd file upon completion. Please do not compress graphics or merge layers -- we may need to edit colors/balance and/or change the title in the future! Audience: sci-fi fans with sense of adventure; armchair travelers. Central plot: A group of scientists brought a terrifying alien species onto the ship for study, keeping it inside a large dome at the center of the ship. The team is sabotaged and locked inside, with the creatures. The entire book takes place inside the spaceship. Cover design elements: massive dome-like structure that shows an alien planet's surface, complete with bat-like creatures, bear-like creatures, and strange shadowy shapes. Consider POV of looking down into/out and over the expansive dome. Please look at the original author's work for inspiration. This book is part of this "world," so feel free to "match" the feel of these first three. Be creative! Here are some ideas for inspiration: 1. A.G. Riddle's Atlantis series (these are the other books in the series): http://www.amazon.com/A.G.-Riddle/e/B00C32LQBK/ref 2. The Lost Starship & Fluency (great depth; use of computer-generated imagery) http://www.amazon.com/Lost-Starship-Vaughn-Heppner-ebook/dp/B00N3NAY2K/ref & http://www.amazon.com/Fluency-Confluence-Jennifer-Foehner-Wells-ebook/dp/B00L3U9OCG/ref 3. Discarded Colony (love the colors): http://www.amazon.com/Discarded-Colony-V-M-Gunn-ebook/dp/B00MYHB4QG/ref 4. Wool (love the color, distressed look, still very simple): http://www.amazon.com/Wool-Omnibus-Silo-Hugh-Howey-ebook/dp/B0071XO8RA/ref 5. Cyber Storm (love the colors, typography, layout): http://www.amazon.com/CyberStorm-Matthew-Mather-ebook/dp/B00BT4QRHG/ref Overall ideas: Please use your best judgement and try to "match" books in the genre. Winning design could be large, blocky typefaces like older thriller styles, or more modern style with smaller fonts and some imagery. Please leave questions and comments!

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.
NickThacker 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.

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.
