Konkurrence Instruktioner

I need a book layout that can be used over and over again designed in InDesign. I need he or she to create a book layout with A4 dimensions that compliments the graphic novel that this will be attached to. I need the template to include upon completion all the power tools ready for publication, such as flexible master pages, logical layers, object styles, libraries, and snippets, and, of course, paragraph and character styles that can automate formatting, nested, GREP, and cascading styles. After the templates completion, it should already have pre-designed sections ready to go for use. All I should have to do is take the template and plug the information in.

---Attached are pictures of what an ideal InDesign book template would possibly look like if it complimented a graphic novel. Mainly because of how it uses colors and blocks to differentiate its sections, however, I’d like someone who could possibly improve on its design to make it look even more suitable to fit with my graphic novel.

---Also attached are a couple of pages of what the graphic novel is going to look like so that hopefully it can spark some creative ideas for you.

--- Last but not least I also have a sample chapter of my upcoming book. I have the chapter broken up in such a way that its section will complement the InDesign template nicely. Please use the chapter to test your flexible master pages, logical layers, object styles, libraries, paragraph, character and cascading styles.

*PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS THAT MIGHT HELP YOU DESIGN THIS CREATIVE PIECE. BEST SUBMISSION WINS.

*Addendum 1: A freelancer asked about using Photoshop instead of InDesign. I am not opposed to any Adobe Product that I can actually use as a book template over and over again. I should be able to add-in whatever details I need after the template is designed. As far as I know, the type of things I am looking for in this template are not typically designed in Photoshop. Now I imagine someone may use photoshop to assist in the creativity of the template but I don't know if Photoshop can be used solely by itself. This being said, if someone was able to completely design it in photoshop and it's impressive enough to consider I will.

*Addendum 2: I added more money.

*Addendum 3: I added a bunch of original content from the drawings of the graphic novel if you would like to include it somehow in the template. I wouldn't just throw a picture on top of a template though, I could do that myself and will probably just reject it. If you do choose to use these use them in such a way that they compliment the template. I have the PSD to these as well if you think you need it. Thanks.

      This is not a project just based off of skill, it is also based off of vision and that is where most of you are having a problem. I need someone who has skill AND creativity because this hasn't been done before. I need someone with a vision that sees it in their head and can put it together. The best I can do is point you to the only design here that mimicks what I am looking for. You now have two to look at, both of DaveWL submissions are the exact look and creativity I am looking for. If you desire to win your design needs to look better than his. But look at it seriously though, he put his creative touch and made it look professional at that. Most of the designs submitted look like something I could easily put together myself. I need more than that.

      Well that's just it, I was very detailed in my description because the type of book I am having everyone create a layout for doesn't yet exist. This is the first I have seen of something like this. I understand that this is in some ways posing a problem to some of the Freelancers.

    Hey everyone please don't get too caught up in all the graphics I uploaded. The primary goal is the layout NOT just adding graphics to an InDesign generic template. I want a stunning, exciting, beautiful looking template. If your so inclined to somehow add my graphics in there to make your design look better, well then so be it. However, don't focus on pasting in graphics at the expense of the creativity and unique graphic novel complimentary look I first requested. If you really want me to consider your submission, go the route DaveWL did. He used my writing, and came up with super bomb layout that is hands down the best and only choice I would choose if this contest ended today. I am not looking for a generic template, so if that is the extent of your creativity, it would be best to pass this contest up. Thank you.

      Contest are the best way to go when you don't know if someone will be a good match for you. What I chose you, you did the work and I hated it. I'd rather not take the risk. This way whoever actually designs one that's as creative as I am looking for I will be able to use that person from now on. Contest have their perks. Thank you for your response. I wish you much success with all your projects.

    I need more submissions that have the level of creativity his does. Even then I believe there is more he can do to make it even more creative, I am just looking for someone who is going to do such a good job that I will use them for all of my projects. I hope this does not offend anyone, that is not my intention.

    What I am looking for are submissions like DaveWL. It's original, it sleek, could be better but if I had to choose now that would be the one. I need you to do what I can't do, make this template, so unique, and complimentary to the graphic novel as I explained that if someone else wanted to copy it, they would have a hard time. This is why I don't make the submissions private. In my opinion, if your work is truly unique then who cares who sees it. Let them try and copy you if they dare. Without originality, a copy cat will always reveal themselves. So I need this to wow the hell out of the reader, so much that even if they don't like the content they are stuck because of the layout. I know exactly what I am looking for so I guess that means I am picky but that is why I bumped up the price, so that I can really see some of your best work. So far I am sorry to admit, the only one that comes close is DaveWL.

    Hi everyone. I hope all is well. I wanted to give some feedback on some on the ones that have already submitted so that even better submissions can come in. I am extremely technically proficient in most Adobe Products, so if you're layout is basic, I could have done that for myself.

      I added the Comicbook samples hoping that it would spark creativity. Remember that the layout you are creating will be added to a graphic novel that is being produced right now. I asked for a creative approach so that the layout and design made in indesign in some way matches or at the very least has a look that compliments it. So the samples are just there for you to see that look.

      I am not opposed but I am concerned that I would not be able to add in the text. Chalk that up to my inexperience with the suite of software. Is it even possible to do that with Photoshop.
