Project description

We are looking for a book cover (5.5 x 8.5 size, all aspects of the cover, including binding side and back) for a book on a spiritually guided text titled, "REFORMATION OF CHARACTER". Some key words to define the style and design are: -reformation -transformation -inspiring -spiritual -mystical -doorway/doors/wooden/spanish architecture [The designs are getting better. We would however like for the doorways to have more of an eastern look. Middle eastern or spanish, or even south asian or persian.] -dark bold colors -traditional/1890's

  • Dear Ahmadtarin! Thanks for the rating! What do you mean? What can I change?
  • Hello, I was wondering if you were looking for a whole book jacket or just the cover designed? Also is there any more information beyond the title you would like on there?
    • The title and the author line are fine for now. Just updated the brief: we do actually want the design of the back of the book and the binding as well.

    • Thank you, I will be posting an updated design with full jacket shortly.

  • Hello, I just wanted to know what are the dimensions of the book?
  • Hello Sir, Could you make this contest blind? so you can have original designs without copycatting, Thanks.
  • Hello there! I enjoyed participating in this contest, it was fun working with the designs. I'm a bit sad that the deadline's got postponed, because I've used all of my 10 designs in this contest. Hope you'll find the winner and the book will be published with a great design. Zoli
  • Hi, could you explain what book is about? thank you
    • Hello Hida, the book is a text written from a spiritual/sufi background on how to practically improve one's inner qualities - one's character, as it relates to God and to people.

  • Hi, I submitted entry #33 and #34, I'm the author of both photographies, so you won't have trouble with copyrights. Thank you.
  • This is very nice. There is a lot of symbolism here that I like. The background behind the tree is a little drab. Do you have any other options for that background? Also if you could remove the "shine" from the R? I think I am down to between you and one other designer.
    • Hi Sir, I will remove the background, and try to add a new background, does that make sense like if there was mountains maybe? or any objects you like that relative to the title? if so i can add it.

      |--| Mountains could work. Do you have another arch way that has an Eastern feel to it?

      |--| I hope i have Sir :) do you like this tree concept? it shows the tree transforming to each seasons.

  • Hi CH, I have submitted my 1st design in your contest. Please rate my entry #38 & feel free to let me know the required changes you want in this design. So that your expectation can be met. Awaiting for your kind comments. Thanks. Best Regards/WebStar
  • I like this cover! Would you be able to change the "of character" from the green script to a more sober font, similar to the font you used for "Reformation". Also, is there another image for the back? I don't like the chain. But I really love the front cover.
    • Hi! I uploaded #35 and #36 with similar font. Is this how you visualize it? Do yo want me to make some other changes?

  • you can't use copyrighted art in the contests http://sphinx.blog.bg/photos/76646/original/9aa58b66ae4c.jpg http://www.designcontest.com/other-design/nur-institute/entry/37
  • This is excellent. Is this your picture? Also could you change the back cover so that it doesn't have city lights?
    • I made some changes at the back cover and uploaded entry #55. Unfortunately, this is not my picture, but it can be bought for a small fee. I already made arrangements so if this is going to be winning design, there will be no problem with picture.

  • The designs are getting better. We would however like for the doorways to have more of an eastern look. Middle eastern or spanish, or even south asian or persian.
