We require a book cover design for a motorsport event we're currently photographing.
The event is called the 'Armor All Bathurst 12 Hour' and is an endurance race event, see the official website for background info; http://www.bathurst12hour.com.au/
To illustrate our requirements for this book cover I have attached a PDF of the design that we used in 2010.
The cover needs to convey a sense of speed but also simplicity. The colours need to be strong without being overpowering (colour combinations can be up to the designer to decide, the scheme used in 2010 we liked but we're also open to other options).
The car featured in the cover design needs to be generic while still retaining a distinct outline, the car featured in the 2010 cover is a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X. The car in the design also needs to be able to be interchanged, for example we photograph for a number of teams each of whom run a different model/manufacturer of car.
For the purposes of this project please base the car design on the Subaru Impreza WRX STi, the exact car competing in the event is also attached. As per the 2010 design, the cars do not need to contain sponsor logos, colours or signage - just the distinct body shape/outline.
Following the completion of the competition the remaining cars for the cover variants will be provided, however the core design/colour scheme will remain the same (note other than the Subaru Impreza STi, there are four other cars required - the Audi R8 LMS, the Lamborghini Gallardo, the Ferrari 458 GT3 and the Mercedes-Benz SLS GT3).
The specifications for the cover are 3578 pixels x 2550 pixels @ 300dpi, in PDF format.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask away as I'm sure I've missed something important! :)
