thatgoldendog got their new other book or magazine by running a design contest:
Coffee Table Book Layout Design - Image Included
Check out thatgoldendog's Other book or magazine contest…
Animal & Pet
This will be a "coffee table" book, meaning it's mostly meant for "looking" at images rather than reading. It'll feature approximately 70+ images of my insta-famous Golden Retriever Champ with some accompanying quotes.
What's your vision?
1) Dust Jacket design - I am providing the artwork for the cover (attached, mint blue photo with dog and ice cream cones). I need help designing the text/font for the title and author, which will be "That Golden Dog" which is by Candice Sedighan. Also the flaps, book spine, and back of the book. 2) Inside layout- This is a photo/coffee table book. Most of the pages will just be a full page photo with a quote on the page next to it., but I welcome variation if you can do it tastefully without too much clutter. I'll need a 1) title page 2) dedication page 3) table of contents 4) acknowledgements page. For the qualifying round, just make a couple sample spreads using the quotes and images I provided in the word attachment as well as the dust jacket design. This is to get a feel for your work and we will do more later.. COLOR PALETTE: Mint Blue, Navy, Gold, White
Submit: 1) your dust jacket design (I put a very brief sample description for the back of the book and Bio inside the flap. Honestly what the text says doesn't really matter right now, I mostly want to see how visually appealing your work looks. I'm going to hire a writer to write those soon, but want to find a designer in the meantime since that usually takes longer. 2) a sample of a couple spread samples (the book cover is attached. It's the mint blue picture with the dog and ice cream cones). This is to get an idea of what your work is like. I will use these samples to choose a winner, and the winner will earn the job of designing the rest of the book in a one-on-one project. There will be approximately 40 to 50 spreads total +/- (70-100 pages) and it will need to be finished within a month's time delivered via PDF. I will attach some images and quotes to get you started in a word document. I'll also attach examples of other people's work that I like. -The Title will be gold foil stamped in production -the book will be 11 by 8.5 inches (landscape) -I prefer a "clean" look so there isn't too much competing with the images. -For the most part I prefer the image to take the whole page like in the underwater dog example I attached, then the other side of the spread containing the quote or poem COLOR PALETTE: Gold, Mint Blue, Navy Blue, White Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions.
