mariannu got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Are you making the book cover for reversible controversial sexual abuse book?
Check out mariannu's Book cover contest…
Marianne Kimmel is communicatiespecialist, spreker en voorzitter van stichting Project Speak Now. Ze is in haar jeugd seksueel misbruikt en inspireert sinds 2013 andere ervaringsgenoten. In 2015 werd ze met deze activiteiten Freelancer of the Year. Haar missie is om het taboe op seksueel misbruik te doorbreken.
This book consists of 2 parts. In the first part, a 7-9 year old girl tells about her life in which abuse and maltreatment takes place. In the second part, her perpetrator tells about his life (the same days and events as the girl) and we get a glimpse into the thoughts of a pedophile. The book is inspired by true events.
The book is interesting for anyone who has an affinity with sexual abuse. Either through experience or through work as a therapist, or as an interested person.
Book cover type
Don’t know yet
My book actually consists of two separate parts that are interconnected. The book is called Upside Down and must therefore literally be able to be turned over to read the other part. Since there is no back page, I would like to flap with information about the content, the author, etc.
What to avoid
Take the subject as seriously (but not heavy, dark, negative) as it has been and has been described. It may be confronting, but it should not be a deterrent. And no (almost) 2 identical designs for both fronts.
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.
mariannu 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!
IDEA Logic was extremely helpful in creating a good initial concept and then quickly and willingly make many more changes to get to a well deserved Winning Design. The final design is different color scheme after all and he was very willing to keep working to conclusion. Already lining up a new project for him
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
