We would like a simple, bold, typographic cover/logo/text design that can be utilized across a series of books. We are using our Book Two for this 99design search, but would like to use the winning design as a template, and work with the winning designer to do compatible designs for other books in the same series.
A series logo design should feature at the top of the cover. The series title is "Gerry Anderson's INTO INFINITY".
The title of Book Two is "PLANETFALL". This title should also be boldly featured.
The author's name is Gregory L. Norris. His name can be credited in a smaller font, either as "by Gregory L. Norris", or simply his name, without the "by". Designer's choice.
This book series is an outer space science fiction adventure series for all ages. Comparisons could include the new Netflix LOST IN SPACE series, or STAR TREK.
Dimensions: 12.7 x 20.3 cm (width x height).
Imagery design could include an alien-looking planet and an outer space setting. A purple nebula is also features in this book, near the alien planet, so this could also be incorporated, or not. Again - designer's choice.
The spaceship featured in our novels is called Altares, which was in a Gerry Anderson TV film from the 1970s. Intrepid designers may wish to watch it on YouTube (search for "Gerry Anderson's The Day After Tomorrow Into Infinity"). Intrepid designers may also wish to incorporate the Altares ship from that TV film (or a stylized image/version of it, perhaps even incorporated with the series title) in the cover design. (Please note: attached file photos of the Altares and the ship blueprint are for inspiration and examples only and should not be reproduced exactly.)
Remember that the imagery is not the most important thing. The most important thing is an eye-catching typographic design that can carry across a series of books, with supporting imagery that can vary somewhat between books, while maintaining a consistent theme.
We have no preference for font, but obviously it should feel modern since this is a futuristic science fiction series.
Logo files are also attached for other Gerry Anderson-branded projects for example only. Same with the patch design for "INTO INFINITY" - this is one prior design provided as an example, but we are open to new ideas.
