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.
ebrandi 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!
I needed an awesome book cover. Ivan Bjorn didn't just knock it out of the park, he broke the bat, destroyed several orbital spacecrafts, and aliens are this minute speaking his name in hushed, awed tones on Galaxion 9, where he is now worshipped as a god. "Thanks" is not enough. If you need an awesome book cover, look no further!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
