Create an eye-catching cover design for the classic science fiction novel “DARK UNIVERSE” by DANIEL F. GALOUYE.
Subtitle: Der Aufbruch (german for "departure" )
Title: DARK UNIVERSE
Author: DANIEL F. GALOUYE
Our idea is a modern science fiction cover design.
Story background: the story is about a world after a nuclear war, a post-apocalyptic world where humans have built a society in the underground. The descendants of the survivors only remember the pre-apocalyptic world in old stories, legends and myths. Light, itself, is remembered as something holy, and radiation is feared as the ultimate evil.
Jared is the son of the Prime Survivor, the leader of the Lower Level Clan. In a world of darkness and monsters both real and imagined, Jared embarks on a quest for Light. Little does he know just how dangerous his quest will turn out to be.
Our idea is a black cover with black title and a black planet earth in the centre (planet earth should look /have a three-dimensional structure as we will have embossment for the planet earth graphic)
The dark letters and the dark planet should look as if they were lighted from behind (like lighted with sunrays or like a total lunar eclipse e.g.?
If you have another idea for the concept, please feel free to create your own vision.
The designer should be able to prepare print ready files (bleeds, embossments and glossy effects.)
Cover size: 20,5 cm high 13,5cm wide
