Book cover design wanted for Twilight lampoon, "My Boyfriend is a Mormon Vampire."

Priporočene spretnosti

Delodajalčev feedback

“Oniria's design won out over several very good designs because they understood my need was not for the best looking cover, but a cover that would convey excitement, parody, and humor. They tweaked the design as requested. After awarding the prize they continued to communicate to get my exacting specifications--7 small changes, and they threw in a few more of their own. ”

    Right, please can I have the hours of my life back that I wasted on participating in this thing?

    I understand contests are the new big thing on here, I was curious as to how the principle worked without shafting talented artists out of time and effort so I thought I'd get involved. Now I am wiser.

    The answer is, it is entirely biased in favour of the client who can sit back and let dozens of struggling artists work their butts off in the vain hope of getting a couple of pennies. Now I know.

      I know what you mean, its more like pitching designs... Although I get what you feel, I am not that regretful because I can always use my none-winning entries as samples in my portfolio. But yeah, its in favor of the client... oh well, thats life.

    I would like to request feedback for #93 , but seeing the other submissions, I can say that this competition is going to be a close call. :)

      Good design. A few tweaks would have been necessary, and again, there is the challenge of conveying "parody."

      Thank you, sir. I can say that tweaking is possible when we can collaborate on the parts that you see require fixing, but I can agree that "parody" is a big challenge to overcome.

      I'm sorry but the franchise is not an insult. I did not say that my work was better than the 5 stars but there were who deserves much better for their very professional work and there are who do not deserve so much for there childish playground work. I hope that the winner can reflect the content of the book. and the contest holder is going to make the right choice.

      oh, I honestly thought its your artwork. I've seen that before, and I liked the style... so I was a bit of excited to find out if its yours :) If its not, I dont have a problem with that... you've actually put it nicely... but then again, it can be grounds for plagiarism...you might encounter problems in the future if the original artist will claim his rights over it. Just a friendly reminder. :)

    Dear greenjacketbooks, for true LAMPOON concept, please check #75
    I can change the face to someone else (to avoid copyright issues) but you got the comedy/parody on it. Reviews and feedbacks would be appreciated. Regards

    Some feedback I've received is that many of these don't work for communicating that it is parody, and many potential customers aren't really interested in another teen vampire book. If you have a "serious design" can you tweak it to say comedy?

    • pred 10 let
    1. marATTACKs

      Copying the looks of the real character of the movie (Edward Cullen - who've become really iconic to teens these days) with the mormon book, the white long sleeves and tie, I honestly think it becomes obvious to those who have read the books or seen the movies that it is a parody. Especially because the font used is the actual twilight font...

      But um, would you want it to be funnier? So that its obvious that its a parody? We can do that, I guess... but as someone who has read the books and seen the movie, I think this book will appear to have less value if its cover is obviously funny... but I dont know, comedy varies from culture to culture :) if your team thinks it should appear funnier, then we as contestants should better try it :))

    Since this is not a "guaranteed" contest, I hope you understand that I placed a thin X watermark in the image. In case you like my design, I am willing to do adjustments and minor revisions. Thanks and best regards! :)

    Greenjacket Books is pleased with the designs. You all should be very proud. It will make the final decision hard.
    Question: Should we be "rejecting" the one that don't quite work? Is that helpful or insulting?

      I suggest that you start rejecting works...

      1. It will help the designer to grow... to know if he/she pass the standard set by the contest holder...
      2. It will prove that you know what you are doing as a Contest holder.
      3. It helps the community know where to start or what to do next... in regards to what style to use or how to create something that you will surely like.

      I hope it helps :D

      Lexi's book is parody. It starts:
      THE SCHOOL CAFETERIA TABLE WAS COLD AND HARD AS polished marble, just like his rapturous chest, which was the first thing I noticed between bites of stale broccoli and salty potato chips while I was trying to make meaningless conversation with my new partially hung-over friends. I perceived immediately, if not sooner, that he was different from every other boy I had ever met%u2026and I don%u2019t just mean the fangs.
      Of course, a mere glance at his two sharp pointy teeth stopped my beating heart...

      Not really, unless you want to include the backcover and spine in the file.
