What's your vision?
A cover for a book about the proliferation of man-portable guided missile systems. These weapons known as "MANPADS" (Man-Portable Air Defense Systems) and ATGM (Anti-Tank Guided Missiles) are sophisticated and can cause harm to international security. MANPADS can allow a single person to shoot down an airplane. My book is a Master's thesis, the following is my abstract. ABSTRACT: Man-portable guided missiles (MANPADS) pose a unique challenge to global security. These weapons are designed to be lightweight and transportable by individuals. MANPADS are shoulder-launched weapons that are designed to shoot down aircraft. Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM) systems are designed to allow a single soldier to destroy a ground object beyond visual range with great accuracy. Both MANPADS and ATGM systems have been used to provide an asymmetric tool against particular opponents. Terrorists and non-state actors can bring down civilian aircraft, causing hundreds of deaths with a single weapon. ATGM systems can provide non-state militias with the ability to engage large conventional forces. The Cold War was the catalyst for the proliferation regime as proxy conflicts between East and West incorporated MANPADS and ATGM systems. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the proliferation of MANPADS and ATGM systems remains a global challenge as weapons are sold to secondary users. Terrorists seek these weapons because of the disproportionate amount of damage they can do. Global efforts are underway to mitigate the proliferation of MANPADS and ATGM systems, yet demand for such weapons makes counter-proliferation efforts increasingly difficult.
Book Title: "The Asymmetric Challenge: The Effects of Proliferation of Man-Portable Guided Missiles on Global Security" I want the design to really pop out and grab the attention of people browsing books. I want to see images of the weapon systems, superimposed over the destruction they cause. Like Aircraft wreckage and blown up tanks. Or exploding planes and vehicles. Have images of terrorists using these weapons. And have the the globe in the background to represent the global threat. I am going for a Drew Struzan look. He is the guys who does these famous movie posters for movies like Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Blade Runner. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drew_Struzan The design has to really pop out and catch people's attention. Almost theatrical or movie like. It is intended for professionals but I want the book to have broader appeal so that everyday people will see the cover and pick it up out of interest.

And then… they selected a winner!
Ak is an incredible designer and artist. The initial concept was almost perfect and he worked quickly to make changes to get it just perfect (another 3 rounds). Highly recommended, will definitely use again - this was already our 2nd project together.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
