ShipRise got their new other graphic design by running a design contest:
Cover needed for a software development eBook
Check out ShipRise's Other Graphic Design contest…
I write software, and write about writing software.
What's your vision?
I need a book cover for an eBook. It must contain the following elements: * Title: "Objects on Rails" * Subtitle: "Notes on flexible web application design" * Author: "Avdi Grimm" Design guidance: this book is a "developer notebook", so the design should reflect that. I'm thinking the overall design might be inspired by a page from a weathered/worn scrapbook or notebook. In addition, I want to bring in the "Rails" aspect. For that, I'm thinking the design should include a VINTAGE photo or woodcut depicting one of: * A railroad repair gang inspecting or working on a rail line. * Track workers traveling on a handcar * A track-laying team laying track. * Some other railroad scene, preferably one that includes the rails themselves. This design should look good in the following contexts: * In full color on a web page * In a list of book thumbnails as in the iBooks shelf view * As a grayscale image on a Kindle or other e-reader. * In full color as the first page of a US-Letter-sized PDF file
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
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 other graphic design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
ShipRise 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.
