Help Capture The "Growing" Excitement Of The Cannabis/ Marijuana Industry
Check out billno's Book cover contest…
Title: Growing Marijuan Indoors. Subtitle: Which Way To Grow?
Electrical and construction contractor for 30+ years followed by grow store ownership for past 10 years. Indoor gardening enthusiast for 20+ years. The combined experiences provide an ideal resource of extensive knowledge and lessons learned from completed projects.
This book is a sequel of sorts to my first book "Design And Build A Room To Grow". First book served as a how-to for the first step of building a grow room. This book provides how-to advice for subsequent steps of choosing grow methods (hydro or soil, clone or seed, hand trim or machine trim, etc.).
Aspiring or experienced marijuana/ cannabis growers. Mostly males but plenty of females. Ages 18 to 88. Emerging newly legal us and Canadian markets.
Book cover type
Other color requirements
I am moderately color blind so I am reluctant to specify colors but I would like a design that provides clarity and contrast. Avoid text colors that get washed out in background colors.
Similar style to first book "Design And Build A Room To Grow". Prefer loud over subtle to capture the current hype about the marijuana/ cannabis industry.
What to avoid
Avoid text/ imagery colors that blend or interfere with each other, Prefer crisp and legible to artistic and blurry.
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.
billno 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!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
