Ringkasan Peraduan


I have written a young adult fantasy novel and am in need of a high-quality ebook cover design. I am willing to work closely with you if you feel able to fulfill this project. Only the highest quality products will be considered.

About the book:
-Main character is a 17 year old girl who has a special connection to a mysterious map.
-Designs I envision include either the silhouette of a girl (in pants, not a dress or skirt) holding a glowing map against a bright backdrop OR the creative, SIMPLE integration of a weathered-looking map as the backdrop (see image attached). It must not distract from the title or author's name. That being said, I am also open to your creative ideas. If you can think of a better way to do it, I would love to see that too. Other items you may consider integrating are a bow and arrow or a dark forest.
-Title: The Mapkeeper. Subtitle: and the Rise of the Wardens (you can use "&" instead of "and"). Note: This is a relatively long title + subtitle combination. Be sure to leave plenty of space for all those words when you are designing.
-Author name: Katie Cash
-Book 1 of a 3-part series. Does not have to say Book 1 somewhere, but feel free to make a design that does incorporate that. I am open to both avenues.

What I want:
-Clean and SIMPLE design.
-Unique, eye-catching design.
-Cover should immediately convey the target audience & genre.
-Target audience is teenagers & young adults, aged 12-22.
-For clarity, I have attached screen shot images of ebook cover designs I like and descriptions of why.

What I do NOT want:
-A busy background or unusual font. No sideways font. Font should not be too small.
-Do not make it look like a romance novel or high fantasy novel (I know it's YA fantasy, but I want to avoid the "cheesy high fantasy" look i.e: unicorns or other mythical creatures, monsters, etc.)
-It is not a creepy or dark book, so please no eerie designs.
-For clarity, I have attached screen shots of ebook cover designs I do NOT like and descriptions of why.

-Approx. 1500 pixels on the shortest side (but a minimum of 625 pixels if you must go smaller), and make the long side proportional for an ideal height/width ratio of at least 8:5 (1.6). Ideal size would be approx. 1500 by approx. 2,500 pixels.
-File size less than 50MB. 72 dpi.
- JPEG/JPG format.
-Color profile: RGB/True Color.
-I will retain all intellectual property rights to the image upon purchase.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Let me help you design the cover I am looking for! Thank you for your time. I look forward to seeing your design!

    625 is just the minimum size for the shorter side. I'd recommend trying 1500 pixels on the shorter side to get that 1.6 ratio.

    The specifications are here on Amazon's KDP site: https://kdp.amazon.com/help?topicId=A2J0TRG6OPX0VM
