Colorado Bucket List Travel Guide
A Colorado travel guide for adventure seekers.
Thank you for your interest in this project. I’m looking for an outstanding design for our travel book. Here are a few of the competitors' designs: https://www.amazon.com/Fodors-Colorado-Full-color-Travel-Guide/dp/1640974261 https://www.amazon.com/Colorado-Bucket-Adventure-Guide-Journal/dp/1955149186 https://www.amazon.com/Lonely-Planet-Colorado-Travel-Guide/dp/178657344X The goal is to have a better-looking cover than these of course and one that really grabs the attention of adventure seekers. The image must be really attractive and eye-catching. It should be of a place that someone would actually want to visit. Please use a stock image of an actual location in Colorado. Shutterstock has plenty of good images. A few pointers: * Sunset or sunrise image * Nothing blurry, detailed images only * Make sure the main title is big and clear I will rate the covers you sent. Keep in mind that our 1-star ratings don't necessarily mean that your design isn't good-looking. It just means that it isn't what we're looking for for this particular book. Also, please don't send the same design concept 10 times but in different colors. Try out different concepts. Try to creatively stand out from the rest. Ps: There is a chance for 1-on-1 work for the winning designer.
What to avoid
Dark stock images Not being able to read the main title at first glance A boring cover

It all began with a design brief.

Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
YH Publications 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!

We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
