Book Cover Design

The project is a front book cover design for a hardback book.

Applicants must be willing to keep the specific details of this project confidential.

Further details of specification for this project will be privately messaged to preferred bidders.

Please note that the winning bidder will be required to sell the copyright to the cover design and will also be expected to send (or scan over) a hand-signed copy of the confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement.

This project is likely to best suit a skilled and highly creative illustrator, experienced in the production of full colour front covers for hardback book manuscripts.

It would be helpful if bidders were prepared to create at least two sample cover designs and could attach examples of previously designed book covers or other graphic design portfolios of past work.

The cover is predicted to be colourful and filled with a lot of artwork/ graphic imagery.

No photographs are expected to feature on the cover.

Any high resolution JPEG compatible design format will be acceptable, as long as the resolution is high.

The book is a brief collection of anecdotes and personal experiences of a teenage girl obtained within the UK private fee paying school environment.

Discussions of the ethos and characteristic traits of the British fee- paying educational landscape will form core points of mention within the manuscript.

The book has been provisionally entitled “Memoirs From A Private School“, however this title is subject to change as several other titles are also being considered.

The tone of the book is somewhat salacious, as content will include somewhat saucy elements and examples of racy humour; however neither pornographic or crude humour will be included within the book or reflected within the front cover.

Further details of book chapters and content shall be made available to shortlisted bidders.

I have been completely overwhelmed by the sheer scale of bidding responses for this project. The amount of bidder interest has been phenomenal and the high standard of all the sample designs created by bidders has been very impressive.

One slight issue as regards sample designs, it is very important to note that weapons and highly sexualized naked images must not be included in designs.
As I have informed several bidders, British publishers are not allowed to use these sort of graphics on front covers and are unwilling to risk fines from Central Government if they print such covers.

Regardless of who is awarded this cover design project, several simillar graphic design projects will be posted over the next few weeks and coming months.
All favoured bidders will be invited to bid again on future design projects whether they are awarded this project or not.

This design project is for the book’s front cover; designs for posters, adverts and banners will also be wanted to promote the book after publication.
Design samples not suitable for use as the book’s front cover but which are eye-catching and attractive may also be purchased as promotional images.

Keep up the great work!

Following several bidder message requests the bidding timescale for this project has been extended by at least 5 days. An extension period of 10 further extra days is possible.
The bidding response and the continuous sheer scale of sample designs has been phenomenal.

For clarification purposes, there is no set maximum number of sample designs, feel free to submit as many samples as you want.
All ideas that are brightly coloured, highly memorable and do not feature images of either weapons or highly sexualized naked images are welcome.
Samples can be based on bidders own ideas or the author’s opened bag idea.

Keep the samples coming in!

Could all bidders with preferred bidder status please finalise their amended sample designs AND submit them alongside handsigned non-disclaimer agreements AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Several bidders are yet to return non-disclosure agreements and this is holding up completion.
A number of bidders have requested more time on several occasions and this has been granted due to the high overall standard of sample designs.

However, 17 July 2011 is the final deadline for receipt of all sample designs- both posters and front covers.
All final design samples and non-disclosure agreements must be received by that date in order to be considered for the job.
The project cannot be awarded to a bidder who refuses to sign the non-disclosure agreement.

PLEASE NOTE- the bidding period must end in 5 days time- no further extensions are possible.
