Carmine Noviello got their new book cover by running a design contest:
A cover for my book: "Mastering STM32"
Check out Carmine Noviello's Book cover contest…
A book about a family of microcontrollers, small microprocessors used to create electronic devices. It's a book both about electronics and programming.
What's your vision?
I need a cover design for my book, “Mastering STM32”. The book is currently in progress, and it's published through the LeanPub platform (https://leanpub.com/mastering-stm32). The current book cover was designed by me. I need a cover for the e-book, which is sized 2550x3300@300dpi, and a full cover for a printed edition I'll publish later through the Amazon Createspace platform: the printed book will be sized 7.44" x 9.69" (18.898 x 24.613 cm) and it will have approx. 830 pages. So I need both the spine and the back cover. What the book is about: it's about a platform of microcontrollers, small microprocessors used to build electronic devices (you can find hundred of these devices in TV, dish washer, your car, etc, etc). The book is both about electronics and programming. Book title: "Mastering STM32" Subtitle: "A step-by-step guide to the most complete ARM Cortex-M platform, using a free and powerful development environment based on Eclipse and GCC" Author: Carmine Noviello In my book cover I've included the STM32 logo, which includes a butterfly, as you can see here: http://bit.ly/1Tlr3Om. I would like to add it also in the new cover. I've attached a PSD file for your reference. As you can see, In the current book cover I've added a part on the top where I specify that the examples in the book works on a particular test platform, named "Nucleo". This info will be in back cover for sure, but I'm not sure if to add it also in the front-cover. I leave this as option: I'm open to your suggestions. In the back cover I need room to place a small photo of me, a short bio, a brief description of the book and the ISBN. Since I'm still not sure about the description text, I need editable files so I can arrange the text when the book is finished. I'm able to work with these graphic design programs: Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign. What I'm looking for? I need a cover that needs to become a sort of brand. I like clean designs, but I'm looking for something that attracts the reader. I would like something influential and clean at the same time. As you can see, the book title is ambitious: it aims to become the reference for a large community of electronic designers. I've attached some book covers I like, but feel free to suggest other layouts.
I've attached some book covers I like. Some of them come from 99design. As you can see I like al lot flat designs, with illustrations. In my self-made book cover you can see those lines with circles: they represents "vias" (circle) and circuit paths. It's quite common to "stylize" them in book about electronics, as you can see here (http://bit.ly/26SvtXp) for example. However, this is just a suggestion.

And then… they selected a winner!
Outstanding and extremely high quality work as always. This is our sixth project with Ale, and we are extremely happy with his hard work and excellent attention to detail. We would highly recommend his services to others and look forward to working with him again.

We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
