Book cover(paperback, ebook, audiobook) for dystopian novel Title: Rußatem („Rußatem“ means: Smut Breath) Please take care of the "ß" in Ruß. It is a special German character (pronounced similar to ss. It is not a b) , which is not included in all font faces Author:Hubert Wiest Target Group: Teenagers/ YA from13 to 16 yrs The cover should attract girls and boys as well. The 400 pages novel is written in changing perspectives of the two protagonists Kalana and Quinn. Impression,Setting, Look and Feel: The novel is a thrilling dystopian novel, playing in the near future (2050). Location: Megacity of Jaikong and its surrounding industrial zone. Everything is totally polluted. Jaikong itself is protected by a hudge dome covering the whole city. The industrial zone around the city is not protected at all. There is tremendous smog in the industrial zone. Visibility range is very very low. In the industrial zone people always have to wear respiratory masks. People die early because of respiratory desease. The cover should express that this book is a thrilling dystopian page turner, which makes it impossible to stop reading. The polluted industrial zone should be pictured - maybe Jaikong under the dome in the background. Nevertheless the cover should show some hope for the protagonists Kalana and Quinn. Kalana and Quinn can be shown. Maybe you have another idea for a key visual. The cover needs to be catchy also at the Amazon preview size of 175x280 pixel The Story: The results of school exams decide on the future of young people in Jaikong. 16 year old Kalana wants to become a stage actress, but she fails her exams. Therefore she is banished to the industrial zone. In the industrial zone she fights together with some friends for the right that everybody is allowed to live in Jaikong. The authorities treat Kalana and her friends as a terrorist organisation. 17 year old Quinn was Kalana’s very best friend during schooldays. But after school he has choosen the opposite side. He joins the police force (light blue uniform), because that might give him the chance to become a professional Vincoon player (Vincoon is a hightech ball game). Quinn loves to play Vincoon. Kalana and Quinn, who once were best friends, are now opponents. They hate each other. Quinn and other members of the police force have to hunt down Kalana and her friends in the industrial zone. Finally Quinn realises that he is on the wrong side. He joins Kalana and her friends. At the very end Kalana and Quinn become a couple. ANNOTATION: Even if this book is about a struggle for freedom, it is not very violent. The focus is not on action and shooting, but on the psychological development of the characters. Characters: Protagonists Kalana, 16 yrs old Kalana wants to become a stage actress, but she is banished to the polluted industrial zone. Like all people in the industrial zone she wears dirty grey clothes. Quinn, 17 yrs old Quinn is a casual guy. As he absolutely wants to become a professional Vincoon (hightech ball game) player, he joins the police forces. His uniform is light blue.

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.
Hubert@Lomoco 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!
I needed an awesome book cover. Ivan Bjorn didn't just knock it out of the park, he broke the bat, destroyed several orbital spacecrafts, and aliens are this minute speaking his name in hushed, awed tones on Galaxion 9, where he is now worshipped as a god. "Thanks" is not enough. If you need an awesome book cover, look no further!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
