Contest Brief

I have an ebook psd which I need transformed into a print book cover. I have uploaded the ebook psd and a template for the print book cover.

Here's the link to the PSD:

Make it look good.

Here's the details:

==Front Cover==

The front cover is a photo of a girl with some hills and stuff in the background. In order to work for print, I need you to:

1) Adjust the size a little
2) Lower the title
3) Raise the author name.
4) Increase the size of the author name.

Use the attached template jpg so that the title and author name will not appear in the cutting area.


I want the author name and the book title on the spine. Use a font similar to the cover.

Title: The Rift
Name: J.T. Stoll

==Back Cover==

I want to have a shot of the hills on the back cover. This photo should wrap around onto the spine. Please apply some similar filters to make it match the front.

There's some room for creativity here. I also want the back cover text (see below) to appear on the back cover, JUSTIFIED.

I've uploaded a three example few files for you to use for this. Pick which one you think will work best. These are the blank_hills jpgs.

original_photo.jpg - The original photo of the front cover before any Photoshopping. Included in case you should need it for some reason.

sample_cover.pdf - This is my really bad version of the cover, so you get an idea of the concept. Please do something much better than this.

I DON'T want the front cover girl on the back cover.

Thanks for looking at my contest!

==File submission guidelines==

I want a jpg which conforms to the template.

I also want the editable files (PSD or whatever).

==Back Cover Text==

Here is the text for the back cover:

The worst date in Vero’s life ends with the arrival of an injured man from another dimension who hands her a magic axe and tries to recruit her and her friends into a war she barely understands.

Which sounds like the exact opposite of how she wants to spend her senior year. Her cash-strapped family just moved to a rich town in California, and acclimating to her new surroundings was already tough enough.

Unfortunately, two soldiers from the other world know what she looks like and want her dead. In the small town of San Luis Obispo, it’s only a matter of time before they find her. She might have to fight, whether she wants to or not.

Again, here's the link to the PSD. I couldn't upload it to freelancer (too big):
