“Great graphic eye for my projects. Oggysin went above and beyond to not only show me appropriate graphics, he actually took the time to put them in a real world setting to help me visualize them. Good communication. Very attentive to needs and project guidelines and parameters. I look forward to working with Oggysin on future projects. ”

    Nice to see my entries still in the running. Murphy, I realize it may take a while for you to select the winner and hence would like to let you know now, (and also something that you may want to factor in your evaluation and project schedule), that I shall be away on a road trip from the 13th to 21st, and thus will not be able to work during these days. In case this happens to affect your schedule, please disregard my entries to this contest.
    Cheers.

      Very haunting images. Not quite right for my subject matter, but memorable and very powerful pieces.

      Since I wrote the book in question, I am very familiar with it. I try to look at all submissions objectively and decide if the image "tells" the reader anything about the book. I have been really impressed with the creativity of most of the submissions, and all are excellent ideas and original. However, not all are appropriate for the subject of my book. I many cases it is a very difficult decision.

    Dear Mr. K. Thomas Murphy,

    Proposal #77 adds a piece of text to the design which brings attention immediately to computer security threats.

    The wordings:

    " Username: ******
    Password: h@cked!
    Access Granted!

    Enter to continue..."

    Clearly focus on "The End of Secrets".

    Kindly rate proposal #77

    Kind Regards,

    CloneSolutions Online Artists.

    Hello Mr. K. Thomas Murphy,

    Please refer to proposal #76.

    The "binary codes" on the background create the relationship with computers and computer software.
    The "man with the mask" points towards "hacking" or "hacker";
    Both explain the title "End of Secrets".

    Kindly rate proposal #76.

    Sincerely,

    CloneSolutions Online Artists.

    Please check my entry #54 and #55.
    Artwork is 100% original because I don't use any stock images. All photo were taken by myself, so I own the full right.

    High resolution PSD would be accepted instead of AI files? I'd prefer work with photoshop instead of AI

    I would design this in Corel, but can export it into a high res (300 dpi) print ready CMYK format (EPS, JPEG, TIFF) as per your printer specification.
