Responsive, intuitive, excellent to work with. I'm so grateful for Poppins work on my book cover. Right from the first concept, she seemed to "get" this project and was relentless in getting the design exactly right. A pleasure to work with throughout. I can't highly recommend her enough. Thank you!
Did a great job and was very responsive to all requests to modify and try different looks. Fantastic designer.

Book cover for a novel, The Weight of Happiness, set on the Big Island of Hawaii, about life, love, lust and lava. This novel takes place in contemporary Hawaii but explores a number of big themes, including the Hawaiian sovereignty movement, the hippy enlightenment and yoga culture, cosmology and the pursuit of happiness.The cover should include the title, "A Novel," and the author (Tam Hunt). Other than that, I'm open to all suggestions about visual themes and elements. This is a literary novel, so the cover should indicate that it's a serious read - but not too serious, as it is also pretty lighthearted and playful. Feel free to use the attached images in your design but don't feel obligated. Also, some Hawaiian traditional tattoo patterns and designs of animals could be cool to include.
I'm looking for a lot more creativity than I've seen so far in the first few days of this competition. I'd like to see some covers that aren't simply a photo with text. How about some original art or some collage style covers? My previous contests have produced a lot more creative entries so I'm hoping we'll see some more creativity here. Also, the author (me) is male, not female, and the book is targeted equally at men and women, so bring on some male themes too.
