Peter Holmes à Court got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Cover for "CYCLE: the art and science of building a bicycle"
Check out Peter Holmes à Court's Book cover contest…
Art & Design
a photo book that combines images of a bicycle being built with a narrative on the science of bicycle design.
What's your vision?
Book cover (front and back and spine) for a hardcover book that is almost square (23cm wide x 22cm tall with 1.5cm spine depth) and may have a cloth cover (i.e. printed directly on the cover) or a sleeve wrap around. Printing on the cover is more dramatic, but limited in colours while the wrap around sleeve can be printed in with no restrictions. The typography should emphasize the word CYCLE, significantly more than "the art and science of building a bicycle." The cover does not need to use any of my images, it can be just strong typographically, however designers are free to experiment with photo placement if they wish.
I want a very strong cover, it doesn't have to tell the whole story, it's meant to grab attention. The design doesn't have to shout "bike", as CYCLE is a broader metaphor. Note the design of the bike itself: clean, white and greys, steel.

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.
Peter Holmes à Court 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.
