interstellar299 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create a Book Cover depicting the menacing Strangling Vine
Check out interstellar299's Book cover contest…
I am an investigative journalist and talk show host.
What's your vision?
I need a front book cover. The book will be published on Kindle as well as Create Space. The front cover will be on a 7x10 book for Create Space. The title of the book is: The Strangling Vine: The Perestrelka End Game I need a Black and White US Capitol Building and its front steps as a backdrop to an American Flag attached to a flag pole. The flag and pole is in full color resting on concrete in the foreground, just at the base of the stairs. Pushing up through the concrete and cracking it, are menacing looking vines, wrapping around the flagpole and nearly reaching the top. The vines must be detailed with lifelike texture, similar to that of roots or tree bark. The roots must stand out. The flag pole can be seen from top to bottom. The flag will be waving slightly in the wind, with some wind furls in the flag. I have an attached photo example of the Capitol building example. Use it if necessary, as it is Public Domain. Towards the bottom of the page I need a Soviet hammer and sickle (example attached), where the roots are growing from, like it was just under the concrete. In other words, I want all the vines coming from this. The hammer and sickle doesn't have to be large, just large enough to be seen. I need the following quote near the bottom of the cover page: Be warned! You are now entering the realm known as the wilderness of mirrors, where you will encounter the deadly strangling vine of communism The authors names: by Paul Schiffer with Larry Boltz Paul's name can be a font larger than Larry's.
I am looking for good detail. The scene must depict darkness. Good luck designers. Looking forward to working with you.

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.
interstellar299 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.
