Daniel Miessler got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Future (book cover)
Check out Daniel Miessler's Book cover contest…
I write about security and technology and the humanities.
What's your vision?
I would like a book cover for a book titled, "FUTURE". It's about some very ambitious predictions for how humans will interact with machines. I would like the design to be artistic, but not so much so that it'll be considered fiction or fantasy. I want people to look at it and feel as if they could learn about the actual future by reading this book. I would like it to look interesting, not scary. I'd like my name at the bottom somewhere, all caps, in a way that you think makes sense. I'd like it to be somewhat subdued.
I'd like something minimalist and abstract rather than a specific object drawn in detail. One concept I'd like to play off of us the idea of broadcasting from objects, like daemons (not demons). So if we could incorporate something like that, that'd be good. Colors I'd like would be black, grey, blue, and white, I think.

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.
Daniel Miessler 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!
Kostis is an incredible talent and nailed the brief completely on his first submission. Beyond his amazing ability to create original designs, Kostis is so easy to work with and so efficient too! It was a real pleasure dealing with Kostis to make edits, and I love the original book cover he created. I’m happy I found Kostis through 99 Designs, and I’ll continue to work with him again on many more future projects. Huge thanks, Kostis on a fabulous job!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
