To provide a detailed design brief, you must be aware of what specifics make the front and back covers of your book. The front cover has a book title, author’s name, tabline, imagery, etc. The back cover includes a quote, author’s biography, and an ISBN number.

It would be good if you give a precise brief with specific design needs so that the designers create a perfect book cover. So, know its different aspects first.

Preferably the book's title, author's name, tagline, imagery and a quote appears on front cover of the book.

On the back cover of paperback book, one has a short promotional summary of the book and author bio.

What if i wanted two or more designs in a package?

At the time of posting your contest, you can buy additional design categories and thus create it as a custom combo package. e.g. you can get book cover & brochure design in a combo pack.
You can talk to our customer support team for more information about it.

Which package should I choose for my design contest?

While we are 100% sure that if you select any package you would definitely get a design that meets your need. Selecting a higher package ensures that top designers take part in your contest. These designers would have a great depth of experience in book cover design and as such would bring fresh perspective and would also need less guidance from your side.

Do I get the copyright of the design?

Of course. We offer full legal copyright of the design to you once you have selected a winning design.

Are there any hidden terms in 100% money back guarantee?

No hidden terms. We offer 100% Money Back Guarantee on your book cover design contest. But the offer comes with certain conditions.

You can get the refund only if you ask for it within 60 days of making the payment towards the contest.
The offer is not open for the contests that feature a guaranteed prize for the designers.
The offer will also not be applicable to the contests where a winner has been awarded.

If you do not find the design entries satisfactory, we can help you get better results. We can help you rewrite your design brief and re-open your project. Just send us an email at support@designhill.com or have a live chat with us to guide you get what you want from your contest.

Is there a way to make my book cover design brief confidential?

By making the contest private you can make your book cover design brief confidential. Making a contest private means that no designer can see a contest unless they sign a non-disclosure agreement(NDA). Also, it restricts the web crawler to crawl the page, and therefore your design brief does not appear on the search page.

How do I know the spine width of my book?

Visit the site on which you want to publish your book and there you can find a spine width calculator to get your book's spine width. If you haven't decided the publisher yet you can still use any spine width calculator to get the spine width.
