What's your vision?
I want an book cover designed for my upcoming book "How to Build an App". This is a technology book about coding and creating iPhone apps. What I am looking for is a bold, memorable, design that is simple enough to be recognizable as a small thumbnail image. My hope is that this is something that can serve as a template for other related books. So I want the art for the current book cover as well as a template that includes the image but without the text. In the materials here, I have a file with all the titles that I want to appear. This image includes my logo which I would like to appear. However, you can change the logo colors and design if you want to fit this into the broader vision. The exact layout doesn't need to be followed - I'll leave that up to you.
I think what I am looking for is an interesting color and font selection that makes this book like a professional technology book. Something to consider is this Apress book cover which is simple, bold and iconic: http://www.apress.com/9781430243717 Obviously, I don't want that cover copied but the spirit of that design is what I'm aiming for. Please no clip art, photographs or anything like that other than the logo (that you can customize for your design).

It all began with a design brief.

Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Matthew Campbell collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
