zrm310 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Design a book cover for an inspirational, metaphysical fantasy novel
Check out zrm310's Book cover contest…
What's your vision?
I need a full cover (front, back, spine) designed for a novel. The story is about a mystical oarsman, in the time of castles and knights, who rows a dying man up a river to help him find the paradise at its end. Even though told against the adventures of the man's life, the story is really about the oarsman, his relationship to the river, and how he changes the man's life through his quiet ways. I'd need the final PSD file so I can add layers with text or other design elements (subtitle, blurbs, etc.) when I finalize them.
I mocked up a picture with stock photos which captures the feel of the book (fantasy, mystery, adventure, peace). This can be used as a starting point to improve on. Ignore the font/placement of the title and focus on image and see if that could be made into a sellable book cover. I have uploaded the psd file with all the elements in layers. The book has fantasy elements, but is mainly spiritual/literary fiction, so I'm looking for something akin to my mockup: more serious, something that stands out from all the other fantasy covers. Or, if you have an idea in a completely different direction, I'd love that too.

Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
