Nicklas Brendborg got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Help Us Catch The Attention Of High Schoolers In Denmark So We Can Help Them Succeed
Check out Nicklas Brendborg's Book cover contest…
We're two former students from Denmark with 4.0 GPAs writing a book about acing school (primarily high school). Basically the book is a how-to-guide / self-help book containing both abstract and practical stuff. The book is split into 3 major parts. The first one is about mindset, containing lessons on hard work, motivation, confidence and so on. The second part is practical advice in the form of different strategies, tips and tricks for time management, efficiency, learning among other things. The last part is a practical exam guide. Our target group is between the ages of 13 and 21, with a special focus on 15-18 and the moms of teenagers in this age group. The book will be sold as both an ebook and a paperback.
What's your vision?
We want an awesome book cover to catch the attention of our primary target group in the ages of 15-18 and moms of teenagers of these ages. The cover needs to be fresh and sharp - preferably with a bit of color to make it stand out - also, we like it to not be overly simple. Please notice that Danish students do not get square graduation caps upon graduation, so don't use them in the design. Furthermore we prefer not to have pictures of real peoples faces on the cover. Try with animation, silhouettes, pictures taken from behind, etc. if you want people in the design. Not meaning that "real" pictures are discouraged, though. They can make for really cool designs. So far we have seen a lot of simple design. They can be great but we would also like some a bit more detailed. Also, remember the age of the target group - don't make the design too immature. Try to illustrate that we are giving students the secret formula to succeed in high school. What needs to be on the cover: Title: "Topstudent" Subtitle: "Vejen Til Bedre Karakterer i Gymnasiet"). This might be changed later though. The names of the authors: Nicklas Brendborg (me) and Lars Horsbøl Sørensen. Backcover: Text, bio, bio pic, etc. as usual. We don't have it yet but you can insert something.
We might have additional work for you, if you are able to satisfy our needs.

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.
Nicklas Brendborg 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.
