andrewxc got their new magazine cover by running a design contest:
Design a cover for Fast CMO, a modern, tech-focused, management magazine
Check out andrewxc's Magazine cover contest…
We are a SaaS product that connects marketer's digital ad/marketing data to revenue data in order to do revenue attribution across the entire buyer journey. We sell to B2B marketers at mid-level to enterprise level companies. We target smart B2B marketers who are data driven and mid-career. We also target CMOs and senior business leaders in +500 person companies. We are launching a business magazine that is a mix between Harvard Business Review and Fast Company. The magazine is for senior level marketing leaders such as the CMO. The content will be based on interviews with CMOs and will feature business article types such as focused interviews with CMOs on specific marketing topics and disciplines, articles on marketing strategy, and reports on marketing trends. The brand should express modern and intelligent insights. It should look reputable from a business professional perspective. When someone sees the magazine they should feel as though it belongs to a sophisticated reader. It should also appear current and relevant to today’s needs around getting useable information and approaching the use of technology to achieve goals. A person should pick up the magazine because the cover communicates that they will learn something relevant.
What's your vision?
We are launching a business magazine that is a mix between Harvard Business Review and Fast Company. We will be printing these magazines and sending them to our target accounts. The content will be based on interviews with CMOs and we are shipping them to marketers we're trying to engage with. We'd like a front cover designed (there will be 3 issues for now), and an InDesign layout template. It will be printed on 8 x 10 paper. The magazine will be 40 pages in total and include a table of contents and around 3 types of articles for each issue. The design elements will be graphic design, typography, and illustration based, not photography based. Here are some examples of what I mean by that: [See attached image]
Is there anything else you would like to communicate to the designers? We'd like strong use of colors and layout that is academic/scientific in style but also modern. Below are links to designs we like, starting with one we really like: This one follows approach number 1 as described in the previous section. We would like a cost estimate for the addition of three illustrations for our planned run of three issues. See link below https://www.behance.net/gallery/31963165/Norme-Tributi-MESE-Il-Sole-24-Ore This one follows approach number 2 where a pattern or area for stock photography is presented. We would switch out the photos and change the color of the patterns across the issues. https://www.behance.net/gallery/41914255/CA-issue-21 We are happy with either approach and will leave it up to the inspiration of the designer. Thank you.

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 magazine cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
andrewxc 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.
