Spine width approx 15mm. Dust jacket in full colour gloss laminated front and back. 100mm flaps front and back. Spine to have Title and Author info. Flaps will have text that I will add later. Graphics may flow around spine and into flaps. Title: From Bud to Bottle Sub-Title: A year in the life of a great little Hawke’s Bay winery. Author: John Miles Final Design to be delivered in as and unflattened Adobe InDesign or Photoshop File. Thanks. The book is a organised in seasons, showing through story telling spreads, the winery, the vineyards, and the winemakers throughout a full 12 months. Not a collection pretty vineyard photos but a photojournalistic set of spreads telling the story of a working winery over the year. The cover needs to get this across. There will be few words in the book. Just an intro to each season. See my Other info for a look inside the book and to grab images for the cover. Looking forward to your submissions. Looking for a creative, compelling photobook cover design. Thanks, John

It all began with a design brief.

Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
John Miles 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.
