Entertainment & The Arts
My mother (Vicki Bryce) and I have written a book. Title: Hatch and Dispatch Subtitle: Tales and advice from a midwife Mum is imparting advice to expecting mums through stories from 35 years as a midwife. The main audience is first time mums, however any pregnant woman may enjoy reading the book.
What's your vision?
Please design a book cover that will suit both an ebook on amazon and a print book. The print book will be 5" x 8" - indd. template attached. 300 DPI resolution, CMYK colour space, 180 LPI. Please use the indd. template. The ebook cover should be in jpeg format, the longest side 2500 pixels, 72 DPI, RGB colour mode, and a height/width ratio of at least 8:5 (https://kdp.amazon.com/help?topicId=A2J0TRG6OPX0VM) The book is humorous, straightforward, and a little quirky. It is not a sugar-coated self-help book. Part memoir, part advice, this book seeks to be pragmatic and comforting and put a smile on the readers face. I think I want a black and white cover (greys also acceptable), but am open to suggestions. My key goal is simple and eye catching. I prefer illustrations / vector. I Do Not want any photos of pregnant women or bellies. Please avoid the cliched picture of a woman looking lovingly at her bump, or who has her hand on her bump while gazing into the mid-distance - this is not the style I'm after. Please include the title: Hatch and Dispatch Subtitle: Tales and advice from a midwife Authors: Vicki Bryce with Alisa Bryce Please make Vicki's name more prominent. Apart from that - go for it. Maybe include a nurse in the design, maybe not. Open to all ideas.
The introduction to the book is attached. The attached images are examples of book covers I like. I have included a few pregnancy book covers that are preferable to books with photos on the cover (however I don't love any of them).

And then… they selected a winner!
I had been trying to create a cover for my book for almost 6 months. After multiple designers, 2 different contests, and more than 350 cover designs, I got what I was looking for from mr. red. I'm thankful for conceptualizing what was in my mind. I love how clean, minimalistic and thought provoking the design is. Thanks to him. I'd definitely recommend him for anyone that's looking for a clean and professional book cover.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
