A Season in Vail book cover
Check out stevebaska's Book cover contest…
A Season in Vail: A Novel of Skiing and Discovery
Author Steve Baska is a retired newspaper reporter who lives in Denver, Colorado and skis each week in winter. For information on his books, visit www.stevebaska.com.
Novel about a Los Angeles attorney who moves to Vail, Colorado to become a ski instructor.
People who ski and snowboard. All ages, worldwide.
Book cover type
Cover image that is a stylized version of the attached photograph of Vail, Colorado's iconic clocktower on left and ski runs on right. Do not want the exact photo image. Would like a blue and white color theme. Would like to see one version with title and subtitle in blue sky at top of the cover, author name at bottom. Would also like to see option of title and subtitle and author name all at bottom. Exact book size still to be determined, but it will be a small paperback and e-book. See Vail photo attached and example of Huck Finn cover. Thanks!
What to avoid
Need stylized version of Vail photo submitted. Avoid stock photos. No wild fonts, but would like to see creative ideas. Want, blue, white, greens maybe as colors.
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.
stevebaska 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.
