What's your vision?
I would like an Amazon Kindle book cover created. The main title of the book is: The 9 Unbreakable Laws of Language Learning The subtitle is: A Quick and Easy Guide to Developing a Successful Language-Learning Mind-Set I would also like my name, Benjamin J. Lawson, on the cover. In terms of the design, I would like the main title to be bold and eye-catching, and most importantly easily readable even as a small thumbnail on Amazon's website. The subtitle can be obviously be smaller and less prominent. I have in my mind a cover with bold, colourful text on a white background, but you are certainly free to be creative with both the font and the colour. Also, I was not planning on the cover having any pictures or other text, but if you can think of how to incorporate any language-related pictures (speech bubbles, the word language written in different languages etc) that complement the main title , I would also be open to this. The overall look should be simple, but professional; uncomplicated, but not tacky. Many thanks!

And then… they selected a winner!
Marola was truly wonderful to work with. From Marola's first draft on my project, I felt instantly connected to their style, feeling Marola truly understood the essence and aesthetic of my work (contemporary dance). All communication with Marola was fast and positive. I was never made to feel like my many detailed requests were too many. The only challenge I had in the process was Marola's repeated spelling errors. Triple check all spelling! Because of this, the process was delayed a bit because each time I reviewed the drafts, my eye would catch a new typo. This is the only reason I rated this designer a 4 and not a 5. Regardless, I would happily work with Marola again!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
