I'm looking for a clean -- modern -- stylish looking, contrasty cover with TWO main elements.
1. A scary looking ZOMBIE skull as a symbol for the dark and dangerous part of the book. The ZOMBIE SKULL must tell me that this is about ZOMBIES.
2. A COOL/MODERN font which represents the entertaining side.
The zombie skull is in THUMBNAIL only a zombie skull - but when you see it in NORMAL size the zombie skull is composed of either a MAP or elements of a VILLAGE (see examples below).
It should have DEPTH and look frightening, as the danger coming from zombies is real and serious.
Some side elements for the village. Do NOT focus on them!
- Church with 2 towers
- Guildhall with a small lake next to it
- Party tent covered in blood
- Rundown house
- Old VW-Minibus
- Video rental store
- A forest surrounding the village
The title on the other side is provocative. Therefore I'd like a fresh, cool looking typography appealling to young people . Maybe neon-colored or bubble gum?
Please keep in mind it must be easy to read even as a thumbnail.
The color scheme : Any that you think is right, but it needs high contrast to catch the buyers attention. Please have a look at the pictures I attached.
I'd love having the image (zombie skull) on a bright background. Please check the images I attached.
Although I'm allowing stock footage, own creations are preferred just like the upside down example. It just need to look good and fit in.
Please feel free to be courageous with your design (as this book is also courageous) and also feel free to express yourself and bring in your own style and ideas.
I am open minded to proposals and am very much looking forward to your designs.
If you have any questions regarging this contest or anything else, don't hesitate to mail me - I'd be happy to answer them.
