Check out Royo's Book cover contest…

Anyone involved in the software industry: team leaders, developers, designers, security folks, operation folks, testers.
Book cover type
Something where something comes into a pipeline on one side, and comes out better at the other end. With multiple parties contributing to this pipeline and affecting it. See ATTACHED IMAGE for a brief idea... but it has to be kind of SMART... to IMPLY something like that. On the SECOND screen shot you can see an image with TWO pipelines. You see they split in the middle and converge. Just to get some ideas. Maybe have multiple intersecting, converging and splitting pipelines on the cover, like a spagetti of pipelines (ordered chaos)
What to avoid
Don't make it too "cute" or funny.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Royo collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
I loved the creativeness of the designer. I was very impressed of the designs that brought my book cover to life. I liked the color combination that was used and the pictures as well which all related to my book title.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
