Contest Brief

Hi! I run a web analytics agency in Australia. I typically hire on Upwork, so feel free to see my client rating on there. This time I thought I would try out freelancer.com.

I am looking for an ebook cover:

Title: Which visitors will buy from your website?
Caption: "This secret will explode your ROI!"

See similar example #1: [login to view URL]
See similar example #2: [login to view URL]

See my attachments for my logo and branding colours etc.

Are you able to create this ebook cover for me?
I also have a whole lot of e-product covers that I need as well. I'll have a whole suite of additional things for the winning person to do that I'll pay for separately.

Please note: The logo etc are for colour and style guide, the logo is not required on the cover of the book, although the spine might be a nice touch. I want it to look like a normal printed book, not like a piece of advertising material.

Please make the book face to the right like the two examples shown

    Thanks everyone! I decided to award to Iryna with design #63 !

    Oluwatobi - I appreciate you making so many entries, but I think I would find that hard to work with in my next projects. Iryna and Arun knocked it out of the park on their first go which makes my life easier

      fair enough; I like the challenge - I also wanted to show you how fast i could be with making edits and how resilient my work force could be when it comes to getting the job done. Congratulations to Iryna with Entry #63

    I'm quite fond of Iryna's design #56 - I like the fact that it is on brand, uses suitable typography, doesn't have brush strokes or other distractions, I like the colour choices of the different words and I like the fact that the question mark is not distracting from the core text. The only thing I don't like about this image is the fact that the design is quite two dimensional and I would really like it to look more three dimensional with the book facing towards the right like in the examples I provided and some of the other covers that I have rated highly

    Hi Everyone, I asked Arun from #43 to add the word 'secret' into the caption. I think the caption reads better now, so I will update the brief to request the word secret in the caption. Sorry to everyone who followed my original request

    With #32 I like the simplicity of this design and I like the pile of books sitting behind it. I'm preferring the chunkier fonts of some of the other designs though, and I'm prefering designs that don't have my logo on the front cover (I do like it on the spine)

    Here's another little thing to think about - the most important words in the heading is "which visitors" and the most important word in the subheading is "explode"

    My favourite at the moment is #28 because its easy to read, is simple, but stylish, has the logo on the spine instead of the front, the font chosen is heavy and bold, the book faces the right, the book is not displayed at an unusual angle, and the additional books do add a nice touch, although might not be necessary for the final design. I do like them in this design though. I would like it even more if it was blue instead of black

    Oluwatobi, I've ranked up your design #20 . I like your concept, the angle, the main book being on the right, the stack of books behind, the question mark on the spine and the colour pallette of blue background. The title and subtitle of the book still need to be more bold or bigger and a higher contrast from the background

    With #29 , this cover is quite good, but I really am not keen on the unusual backwards angle with the book standing on one tip.

    I like #28 a lot, is there any chance of making it navy rather than black?

    With #30, I'm not keen on the backwards angle of the book, or the colours or the fonts

    Samin I like your #24 more than #23 thankyou, let me mull it over. I like the fact that the type is easy to read and high contrast, I'm finding the background a little distracting. Overall its on target.

      please check #25 :) If you want, I can further refine the question mark.

    • 2 months ago

    OK the recent offers are getting much improved, thankyou everyone!! OK, Samim I like your #23 and you have the right angle for the book in this one. I also like the fact that you have removed the logo from the front as I think it looks cleaner without the logo. I think the background question mark could do with being a little more subtle and the main title font a little less blurry. Is it the texture? I do like the stack of books, but it would be better if the main book face was on the right rather than the left so that I can put the main copy of the page on the right. But overall this image could be adequate for my purposes. Thankyou for continuing to refine your offer.

    I would reconsider something like #7 if there was no rock, it wasn't up on its tip, and my logo was made less prominent

    Hi Oluwatobi ( #17 ) - thanks for the edit, although you swapped out the parts that I liked in your design #6 . I liked the colours and the layout and the big question mark. I liked the stack of books behind with the question mark on the spine. I would have liked the caption to be bigger on #6 , and the logo removed from the front cover but put on the spine instead. But the logo should be tilted so that it fits horizonally on the spine, or alternatively just the graphical part of my logo on the spine

    #12 , #13 and #15 are all essentially similar mockups, but I prefer #12 because I think the blue makes a better background colour than the orange, and I don't really like the orange triangles on the corners of #15

    • 2 months ago
  • petramanos
    Contest Holder
    • 2 months ago

    #12 and #6 are my favourites so far. With #12 the background needs to be removed and the logo needs to be less prominent. But I do like the fact that it faces the right, the design is clean and simple, the font is easy to read and the colours are on brand

    • 2 months ago
  • petramanos
    Contest Holder
    • 2 months ago

    I prefer the books that tilt slightly towards the right like #6 and #4 - please see two examples I provided. I would like the books to be about the same shape and slant angle as those as they slant towards the text on the page
