I was very happy with my designer (vtdasv) and the results I got - all of the designers submitted great designs and I had a number to choose from. This designer had great communication skills, quick turnaround, and was very responsive to comments and ideas. Very pleased with the whole experience, excellent results for a very good price.

Project description

Need a cover design for an e-pamphlet to be titled "Dangerous Teen Apps:  A Parent Reference Guide" by SBS Publishing.  The cover should indicate professionalism, more than sensationalism, but should try to capture the serious mood of the subject.

  • I like this design - however the actual apps in the book are not the ones that you show logos for. Some of the apps that are going to be part of the book are: Snapchat, Kik,, uM (uMentioned), Whisper, Vine, YikYak, Fess, Omegle, Oovoo, Periscope, Voxer. If you used some of those symbols the design would work. Thank you!
    • @mirmcnabb It is possible to change the icons! I will deliver the edited design soon! Thank you for your feedback!

  • Original file is in the maximum size as required. #1
