We're supporting the new cover of Iron Mountain, the second book in a a post-apocalyptic / dystopian / hard science fiction novel series.
What's your vision?
Hi there! Thanks for looking at this design competition. I'm a scifi writer and I'm looking for my next scifi book cover. If you're a fan of Simon Stalenhag (http://www.simonstalenhag.se/) and evocative pictures like this (http://prasa.deviantart.com/art/The-Nighthawk-619962405) then jump right in because we're going places. Here's the deal: I want to update the book cover for Iron Mountain - currently, it looks like the attached book cover. I want to do better than this - I need a book cover that communicates high-octane action and adventure, science fiction that takes place on the oceans of our future and how one kid will be affected when the The End of the World as We Know It (TEOTWAKI) takes place. You'll see the cover that eventually became the cover of Iron Mountain's predecessor, Flotilla. Can you as a designer of amazing book covers, help me come up with that visual concept? As this competition continues, I'll be getting feedback from my online community and providing it. Please don't take it personally, the goal of this exercise is to get a book cover that jumps off the shelves. That's highly subjective and sometimes that feedback is put bluntly. I'm going to shield you from the ugly troll comments, but where they have legitimate feedback, I'll provide it. Thanks in advance for your participation - I'm so excited to see what we come up with together!
I have a sample of the book online that you can read for yourself to get a sense of what the story is: http://flotillaonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/IronMountain_BetaReadersCopy_FirstFiveChapters_07072016-1.pdf

It all began with a design brief.

daniel.r.haight collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
The design is exactly what I was looking for, even though I only gave them a brief description as to what I wanted. This is my third book cover from twinartdesign and each cover has been, not only what I have asked for, but more. I would be hard-pressed to go to anyone else. They are professional, easy to work with always seem to come up with just the right tone and style for the covers. I would highly recomend them to anyone.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
