Kilpailun tehtävänanto

The cover is for an ebook. It should be 2560x1600 pixels (lengthxwidth) at 300dpi and as large as possible. Please research current romcom book covers (and see attached examples). They are usually bright/pastel colours with flat vector images.

The book is set partly in a ski resort and partly in New York City. It is a friends-to-lovers story starring a blond business woman and a dark-haired, more rustic man who had a brief relationship in their youth and now fight the odds of their very different lives to get back together.

***This is the first book in a series of six. I will commission the same artist for future covers in the same style at $200 per illustration if the cover art is well-received (you agree that you are available for this work) PLEASE DO NOT BID IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED IN CREATING ANOTHER 5 PIECES OVER THE NEXT YEAR OR SO.*** NB: This is not a guarantee. I reserve the right to award this contest and no additional projects.

- Original work only, please. No stock images.
- There must be space for typography - author name, book title and a (small) tagline.
- You agree that all rights transfer to me at handover.
- I will credit you in the book (if you want me to).
- You will send layered PSD files and high res JPG.


Details about the book, by request:

It's a romantic comedy book with the title "A Long Time Coming". The protagonists are a 30 year-old female (FMC) CEO of a successful online magazine and a 29 year-old man (MMC) who is taking over ownership and management of a ski resort that his parents used to run. FMC's family used to go to the ski resort for vacations. FMC's brother is MMC's best friend. FMC and MMC had a brief (1 week) relationship as teenagers. She goes to the resort to do a feature for her magazine. He is busy trying to fix the place up after some neglectful years. They fall in love/get together while she's there. Then there's a bit where they split up. Then they get together for good. The central conflict between them is their very different lives, with her being based in the city and a career woman and him being in the resort and a lot more hands-on/practical. At the end of the book, she has moved to the resort but has an office there and commutes regularly to NYC, and the feature she wrote means the resort is like the hot place to be.

    great work by the artist who is in first place.
    But the contest is totally contradictory, firstly only the art without the typography was requested, then the first place has typography, secondly the story of the book is told in a ski location, but the first place has only buildings. or be quite the opposite. sometimes it is difficult to understand people's heads. Where is the ski resort requested in the competition? there is not even snow on the cover.

    Please don't get hung up on the one mockup of potential text placement I used. Play around with it. I have removed that mockup and added 4 different ones. Many of the example covers included have elements here and there rather than one cohesive illustration, and many integrate text. Thanks.

    Please check EXAMPLES and COLOURS in the documents attached to the description. Some are full illustration, many are simply figures, some have icons dotted here and there, almost all figures are very simple/clean with minimal features/details. I'm looking for original interpretations on a very definite theme. Thank you.

    Please don't put text on your illustration. The example is only there to show you how much space there needs to roughly be. I will be doing the typography myself. This competition is for the illustration only. Thank you.

    Can you please provide a description of the book? That would help me make the cover relatable to the ebook

    Also feel free to add comedy elements. A woman in a business suit skiing down a slope or something (but not essential - I'm interested in seeing different ideas for sure). The cover doesn't *have* to include a man *and* woman but definitely should include the woman. The title will require a bit of space - it is "A Long Time Waiting" so please keep that in mind for the artwork. Thank you! :)

    I will be letting this competition run its course for the full thirty days, guys, to allow those of you with pre-existing commitments to meet them and still be able to enter. So please don't feel that you need to rush. I'll give the same consideration to first day entries as last day ones.
