Road to the Mansfield
Prequel about how three characters made it to the supper club the Mansfield in Hollywood in 1940. This will be first in a Historical Mystery Series
Mystery readers, any age, probably female, US/Canada/UK
Other color requirements
dark jewel tones, nothing bright
I've had to change my direction and add photos. For fonts I'm looking at a big first letter then small caps, easy to read, 1600x2560., or whatever you think because I clearly don't know. The books are to be read in order so must have a book number.
What to avoid
Font must be easy to read in a thumbnail so nothing too fancy.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
lleinph5 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
