Check out mrcmcmlxxxi1's Book cover contest…
The Modern Monk
The Modern Monk is a collective of regular people who have embraced zen mindfulness to tackle life's problems.
A practical guide for those currently or recently broken-hearted due to the ending of a romantic relationship or other such traumatic event. Combining both common sense and Zen Buddhist methodologies for understanding feelings and viewing this as a moment of potential positive change and how to let go and move on with awareness in life.
People (non-gender specific) recently heartbroken and looking for practical and more (Zen / Stoic) Mindful guidance for understanding their feelings and moving on.
SIMPLE and bright, bold, modernist with a smart use of shapes (circles etc) and colours. Attention grabbing - different from all other books in the genre. Accessible to all (non-gendered) and high-quality. *NO HEARTS* Also please NO stock images of stacked stones in water or rippling waves, sunset, enso symbols, yin yang etc. This book is the first in an intended series so please keep in mind the potential seriality of the design, or aspects, colours, shapes that could change with each further book. *Please look at these examples of cover designs we like for reference* https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1hPz3nce21fvEPzo9IyycHOIVVoQ-Lakl?usp=sharing Our logo attached for reference, or inclusion on back page (does not have to be incorporated into design)
What to avoid
Please avoid using images, hearts, the colour pink or anything too romantic and frilly. This book is to appeal to both men and women alike.
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.

And then… they selected a winner!
Really happy with the book cover Dinja designed! She used her creativity to come up with something really different from the other designs and better than what I had in mind. She is also great to work with - I highly recommend!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
