Book Cover for the ever-expanding Machine Civilization Series

Check out Clayton Barnett's Book cover contest…

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.

Client review

This is the second time I have worked with Labelschmiede. I invited her to this contest based upon her prior success but in no way favorited their efforts. The designer was immediately one of the few to zero in on what I was looking for based upon my awful, hand-drawn sketch. As I told the designer, their win was based upon the strength of their book front cover; the other two finalists did yeoman's work on the background and back cover. Not to say that I didn't like Labelschmiede's back-ground -cover, but I don't pull punches in reviews. The other's were slightly better. But... Front covers are critical: book covers are allowed maybe less than one second as potential customers use their thumbs to scroll past them, dozens in a minute. Labelschmiede not only hewed to my original request better than my top other two finalists, but did so in an outstanding way. Any, even the most minor change request, was addressed within hours, even though we are on separate continents. I have worked with Labelschmiede in the past, now in the present. I have a trilogy coming out in the next six months and look forward to their work in the future.
