alastairbowman got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Creative Destruction novel cover
Check out alastairbowman's Book cover contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
Creative Destruction is a novel about the demise of capitalism and our choices for the future.
What's your vision?
Key elements: 1) barbed wire and a drop of water 2) Inside the drop is some desperate people, possible a family or a larger group of refugees, with their backs towards us trudging towards an uncertain future. 3) Jeopardy: the drop risks being destroyed by the wire - either pressing on the water tension or because it risks falling on barbed wire below.4) Text: the title 'Creative Destruction' is a contradiction, which might be worth highlighting with the two words in different colours or fonts. I would also like the strapline: 'The demise of capitalism and our choices for the future', and 'A novel by Alastair Bowman'.
<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-right:-.05pt">Thank you to every one who has submitted here – I’m hugely impressed and genuinely delighted. I will almost certainly be commissioning. <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-right:-.05pt">But I’m not getting the jeopardy. I asked for it in the prongs against the surface tension of the drop, but no one has shown that. It can also come – and could be better – if a wire creates the drop and wire below could destroy it. The background could then be water (or perhaps we don’t know, and the drop could splat on concrete). Inside the wire, the people are suffering. <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-right:-.05pt">I would also like ‘Creative’ and ‘Destruction’ to highlight the oxymoron in font or colour (even position?) <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-right:-.05pt">I also want the strapline of The demise of capitalism and our choices for the future <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-right:-.05pt">And: A novel by Alastair Bowman . <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-right:-.05pt">Thank you again. <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-right:-.05pt">Alastair
