Lale und der wilde Garten
The 11-year-old Sebastian is constantly in trouble with classmates and teachers, and now he has to repeat the fifth grade. As punishment, he is not allowed to go on vacation with his family. He should stay at home and learn. His crazy aunt Daggi, who lives in a mini-van, will take care of him. As he wanders through the area, he follows a cat into a half-wild but beautiful garden and meets the 10-year-old Lale. He has a great desire to annoy this strange looking girl, but she throws him to the ground with a judo handle and he hurts his elbow. While she takes care of his wound in her garden shed, they get to know each other. She is very different from him and everything he found cool so far: she has four sisters and brothers, lives in a high-rise building and doesn't think it's bad that she doesn't go on a family holiday. So she has her peace in the garden, can read and swing in the hammock and take care of the garden, which belongs to her grandpa, but who cannot take care of it because he is very much in love with the garden neighbour and is now constantly with her. Lale cooks bean soup with vegetables from the garden herself, walks with the thick dachshund of the neighbour, does not have a mobile phone, but a wristwatch, takes photos on paper and instead of branded clothes she wears old jeans and worn sneakers. At school she would be the perfect victim, Sebastian finds, but here in the garden he is fascinated, finds her funny but still very sympathetic. Only in front of the cool Enrico and his gang he can't admit it. Because he wants to be one of them, he tells the gang that Lale is alone in the garden at night. The gang then decides to scare Lale and assault her at night. They also want to take a thieves' tour of the garden. Sebastian is getting really bad. He has a totally bad conscience because he betrayed Lale and at the same time he realizes that the gang is actually stupid and boring and he doesn't really want to belong. He confides himself to Aunt Daggi. They set off to warn the garden owners and Lale. Sebastian apologizes to Lale and they become friends again. The garden owners join forces and in turn lurk in the youth gang and overwhelm them at night.
German boys and girls, 7-10 years old
Book cover type
I prefer comic-style (drawn illustration) The Cover should contain the following elements: The two kids: the girl: 10 years, late 4th grade, high-rise housing estate, not much money, four little sisters and brothers, appreciates the simple things of life, self-confident, nature-loving, social; Appearance: short jeans, red T-shirt, worn sneakers, the face full of freckles; two messy, blond braids hanging over her shoulders, cheerful; wears a wrist watch the boy: 11 years, late 5th grade, rather superficial, expensive sneakers, naughty, big mouth, always gets trouble, wants to be cool, wears stylish jeans (baggy jeans (?) - it´s summer) and t-shirt; he´s not really thick but not thin also the wild garden: nice but shabby garden hut; a hammock; plants (fruit trees, hedges, tomatoes, a bean tent, flowers), maybe a small tigered cat
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.
4anjastein 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.
