Design the Cover of SitePoint’s Next Book!

In case you missed it, last week SitePoint’s co-founder Mark Harbottle let slip some big news about the new series of reference books that SitePoint will be publishing in 2008.

Guess what? You have the opportunity to design the first book’s cover!

That’s right, we’re eating our own dog food, and running a design contest for the book cover to be used not only for the first book, but across all titles in The Ultimate Reference series. From the brief:

The desired outcome is simple, elegant, well balanced design that will make our books stand out in a bookstore … On top of the prize, if your design is successful then you’ll receive acknowledgment in the book, as well as copies of the final product.

There are some great designs that have been submitted already. You only have a few days left to get your submission in though.

Good luck to all contestants. I can’t wait to see the final result!
