Food & Drink
We are a Hawaiian-based company that makes nutritional supplements made from the micro-algae we grow on the pristine Kona Coast of Hawaii. Our target audience is healthy people ages 25-55 who eat right and exercise. They care about what they put into their body.
What's your vision?
We would like a book covered designed for our book about the superfood, Spirulina. The name of the book is: "Hawaiian Spirulina - Superfood for Super Health" (there needs to be a registered trademark circle R next to 'spirulina') "With a bonus collection of spirulina recipes" Mandatory Author info: "By Gerald R. Cysewski PhD" Since Hawaii is a very important part of this book, we would like Hawaiian imagery. Since Spirulina is GREEN, the use of green in the cover art is appropriate. The cover should use modern/contemporary colors and fonts and look good enough to sit on a shelf at the bookstore. The winning design will look very CLEAN. Please minimize the use of clip art depicting palm trees, waves, beach, etc. If you use stock photography, please make sure your images are actually from HAWAII. This is NOT a cookbook so it should not look like a cookbook, however, if you'd like to try a design that includes some small images of recipe photos, we have attached some to use. This is not mandatory. We have attached a few examples of book covers we find interesting. This is for inspiration only. Please do not copy and remember this is NOT a cookbook. Dimensions of the book are 9"x6" It is a 72-page, soft cover book. NOTE: For photography, we'd like you to choose an image from this library: http://lynntuckercreative.pixieset.com/nutrexhawaiiproduct/ instead of using stock photography. We've also uploaded some new aerial images of our farm. We'd like one of these to be used either on the front or the back cover.

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.
Sbiesman 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.

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.
