Post Your Creative Brief

This form is for self-publishing authors and publishing houses who are seeking a cover designer for their book project.

Please fill out this form in its entirety, agree to our terms, and submit payment. You will be contacted prior to your brief going live. All payments are nonrefundable.

First time jitters? If you’ve never written a creative brief before, we recommend reading this article first: “Creative Briefs Explained To Non-Creatives”.

Briefs go live every Tuesday. For more information about the jobs board, read this article.

Filling out this form drastically speeds up our manual process of uploading covers. Submit a new form for each cover you would like to add. You may submit as many covers as you would like!

Due to the ever-growing queue of designs to be added, it could take a few days or a few weeks before your cover is uploaded. *Please note that submitting a cover does not guarantee that it will be uploaded. Which covers are added is at the discretion of the site owner.

If you want to jump to the front of the line and guarantee that your cover is uploaded quickly, please visit this page for more information on how to lock in an upload.
