What's your vision?
We look for a book cover designer for a new title ready for publishing. The book is a fantasy story about a new invention - a pill that changes people into a new human kind - Vigils. Vigils eat purple pills every day to keep them awake all the time. They don't need sleep at all. As a side effect, their smell develops very strong. All they lose is an ability to sleep and dream. There are a few significant pieces that could be used on a cover : - a lot of story talks about a golden pen that ends with a snake head and the eyes of the snake are from a dark stones. One of ideas is to make this head as a main image with purple glow around going to the dark. Something similar to Game of Thrones, where there is a throne in the middle and glow disappears. - a significant object in the story is a talk about a yellow sofa. Another idea is to have line drawing of a street (like Manhattan), no people, gloomy feeling and in the middle of the street is a yellow sofa. Building, trees, cars... are grey so the sofa shines. The sky is purple. - one strong scene talks about cliffs in Scotland where there is beautiful view over the ocean...the idea was to make sofa sit on that cliff. Background is the ocean and the sky which goes from dark to purple colour, the rest is grey and the sofa yellow. - the last idea is something very simplistic, which we actually can't specify - it is what an artistic mind can bring, we can't. Something simple with a significant part belonging to a title that is VIGIL and an autor Monika Simkovicova. I am attaching the cover we used to one of the stories (Roden24 - it is actually the name of those pills), that has been published separately last year and became a chapter of the whole book this year. Maybe, it gives you some idea as well. Another attachment is a cover of a comics that has been prepared too - however, we don't want to use that kind of cover for the book - it is only an idea in regards of colours and feelings perhaps. Happy to send that one chapter for reading if you want to get better feeling for the story - it is an "outliner" of the whole book.
As usual, we need all source files and all work will belong to us so we can use it for further modifications e.g. Audio CD cover, e-book cover etc.

I really loved the way that the design looked and the font. She really captured the colors and brightness that I was looking for, and she followed my instructions very well. She's a very talented designer.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
