jvaughn K got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Stop racing in a blindfold book jacket
Check out jvaughn K's Book cover contest…
I work with companies to build pricing focused business intelligence system. I have written a sr business executive focused book about how we use science and transactional data to inform pricing negotiations.
What's your vision?
I need a hard back book jacket for a 6"x9" page format professional business book. The book has about 178 pages so the spine will be about 0.45" wide. Book will be sold on Amazon and similar sites and book stores.
Although the pricing science topic is technical, the book is written for a CXO, VP, Director level audience with Sales, Marketing and Finance roles, and there is not any math in the book. The book takes a conversational tone and uses 2 themes to connect with the reader. The primary theme is auto racing, the secondary theme is weather forecasting - things people can easily relate to. The book is Stop Racing in a Blindfold! Big Data + Pricing Science Drive Bigger Profits The Art and Science of B2B Pricing I like the general feel and colors of the book Smart Pricing which you can see on amazon, search for "smart pricing raju" I'm very open to more creative ideas but have a few thoughts on cover elements 1) a race car on a winding road, the driver wearing a blindfold and money flying out of the car behind the driver 2) a mannequin head wearing a motorcycle/moped style helmet with a checked blindfold with extra cloth blowing in the breeze 3) some sort of racing checked flag and loose bills combination
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at CHF 309.

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.
jvaughn K 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.
