Contest Brief

I have a published book on blockchain technology that needs an overhaul of the cover and I will be releasing a similar version but less technically heavy with a broader appeal for which I need a cover that matches the new one. It should be different enough to be seen as it’s own book but similar enough to understand it’s about the same topic and style.

Here is the book: https://www.amazon.com/Blockchain-Maximalist-Structure-Society-Change/dp/179745899X#aw-udpv3-customer-reviews_feature_div

Even though this cover is basic, it was chosen for specific reasons and the new ones MUST be an improvement. Please do research in the space, focus on a minimalistic, non-image-heavy cover. It should look professional, convey authority, and give confidence.

I will need those two covers in 5x8 and square for the digital version with the back and spine as PSD files.

    Dear Contest holder, I cannot see the entry #161 because it is sealed. I want to update according to your requirements. Can you please share the screenshot of that entry

    Greetings and thank you all for your efforts and entries. The contest will be coming to an end soon and here are my last comments and guides for the final submissions.

    Entries by @iambilal786,@AchiverDesigner, and @AhasanBhuiyan are the top entries.

    You have been submitting two cover designs in the correct formats. So here are some notes for final changes.

    The new, updated edition of the cover that I like the most, is #124 . It looks a little more complex than the previous version, the color signifies a difference in the contents. But the Tagline (The very structure...) Should be larger and more present, the description (on the economical,...) should look more like the right cover in the entry #161 by @AchiverDesigner

    I would like you to include an "Updated Edition" or write "Evolved" underneath the title like @iambilal786 did in entry #174

    The new, cover for the short book that I like the most is entry #99 by @AhasanBhuiyan, but this freelancer has not submitted any new version.

    I would like you to recreate the design, with some variety, not using stock images. There cannot be stock media in the cover.

      Yes, Naveen, none of the final submissions can use any unauthorized stock imagery. Designers that cannot recreate the artwork originally, will not win the contest.

      I will ask for that after the top entries have been identified.

    For the improved, updated version of the Blockchain Maximalist cover you can use a (Second Edition, Updated Edition) Banner at the top. Or add "evolved" under the title.

    Please review the updated job details. I uploaded three images that should make the requirements a bit clearer.

    2 Covers must be submitted in the entry. The requirements for each are in those images. (Contest Update1,Contest Update2,Contest Update3)

    I will reject all entries that show an obvious disregard for the job requirements and will also delete all unnecessary comments.

    I will also make sure to give proper feedback to all considerable entries and look forward to a clearer contest.

      I understand the updated cover is the edition 2 of current book. My question is what is the difference in new book and the current one as both have same title and tags?

    So far, Entry #91 is the only one that has submitted the visual entry in the right way, for both covers. Thank you @mirzatj32 for the right format, even though your designs don't meet the requirements of the job.
