Say what you want about 2017, it's been a great year for literature. At 99designs, we want to celebrate the best books of the year by inviting our designer community (that's you!) to choose ONE BOOK from our list of favourites to re-design using standard stock from Adobe and your imagination!
Attached is a document with the full list of options, the original cover, and a short synopsis of each book. Pick your favourite and show us what you've got!
Feel free to do your research, check out our Pinterest board for book covers (https://www.pinterest.com/smanusama…-novel-co/) for inspiration, and be as creative as you'd like!
Here are the titles and authors for you to choose from (ONLY PICK ONE):
→ "The Ministry of Utmost Happiness: A novel" by Arundhati Roy
→ "Exit West: A Novel" by Mohsin Hamid
→ “The River of Consciousness” by Oliver Sacks
→ “Camino Island” by John Grisham

We will be awarding MULTIPLE WINNERS so get your creative juices flowing and show us what you've got! :)
You'll notice we left most of the brief here blank in terms of stylistic direction, this is because we want to leave the reinterpretation up to you. That said, check out our blog for some of the book cover roundups we've done in the past if you'd like some inspiration.
We have an article for you that will show you how to use Adobe's stock resources: https://99designs.com/blog/resource…ck-search/
Stay specific and get creative with your search criteria! :)
