austinsY got their new book cover by running a design contest:
A perennial, playful, and philosophical book cover for those in sports — athletes, coaches, and parents.
Check out austinsY's Book cover contest…
Austin Einhorn is a movement specialist and expert in skill acquisition. He pioneers new methodologies within both fields and has had the opportunity to work with athletes from several professional leagues across the globe and many Olympic athletes and respective staff. He is the founder of Apiros, a training facility in Santa Cruz, California.
- Movement Banking makes the analogy of long term health and physical development to ideas in investing. The money that most adults rely on comes from certain "investment" windows that only exist in childhood and adolescence. (I.e. childhood movement portfolios are SUPER important.) ONE IDEA I WOULD LIKE TO SEE — I have uploaded a mock up of what this might look like, with descriptions. Make sure you see this draft. What I like about it: an image of kids playing street soccer in the 1920's era. Meaning no fancy equipment, no coaches. Organic play. On the back cover, perhaps the same exact image, except adults playing in the street or in a stadium. **PLEASE avoid cliche athletic stock imagery, like a still of a sprinter, or a coach with hands on hips. No whistles or any more piggy banks.
I expect that parents, coaches, and older athletes will read my book. However, I would encourage high school students to read it.

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.
austinsY 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.
