We require the front cover art for this Series of books (we do not need any spine or back cover artwork).
The series has 5 books to date (4 released). We are looking for 1 design concept, but 5 separate covers. Basically, we would like a single design concept to be customized for each book in the series. The degree and type of variation(s) between each book is left to the designer's discretion.
1. Sub Human
2. Post Human
3. Trans Human
4. Human Plus
We don't mind if designers choose to only submit a single design in the first round. But descriptions of the proposed variations across all 5 books should be provided with the submission - with the expectation that they will be provided in the final round. Although, we are certainly open to all 5 covers being submitted in the 1st round.
We request designs be prepared in two different orientations (**but this is not strictly required). The primary orientation is a perfect square (for an audiobook), the second is a traditional portrait format. OR, submission of a portrait format that can be easily adapted/cropped to a perfect square.
The perfect square format should be a minimum of 300dpi, 2400x2400 pixels. The portrait should be of similar resolution.
In terms of creative direction: the story is Sci-Fi. It is about the integration of technology into humanity, and advanced artificial intelligence beings. The cover art should be in keeping with those elements. Beyond that, we are open to any and all creative ideas.
The books can be seen on Amazon.com as well as Audible.com (Post-Human Series by David Simpson).
