Design brief

Organization name

book name: you can not be bad

Description of business

I'm looking for a cover design that both captures the playful mischievious " bad" and also the softer more spiritual message that everyone is perfect just as we are

IF there is a photo on the cover, it needs to be one that ANY child could identify with see if race, ethnicity can be blurred so all races can relate

this is a book for children to let them and their parents know that they are perfect just as they are . it is to counteract the flood of negative messages chidren get that cripple self-esteem throughout adult life

Organization industry

Childcare

Description

YOU CANNOT BE BAD
THIS IS A BOOK TO REMIND CHILDREN OF ALL AGES ABOUT OUR TRUE NATURE. It is intereactive in that each page is made personal by adding photgraphs of the child tht aare relevant to the text.

The photos can change as the child grows.

ACROSS FROM THE WORDS ON EACH PAGE IS APLAVCE TO PUT A PHOTO OF THE CHILD THAT MATCHES THE TEXT.(for eg. No matter what you do has a photo of the child doing something)

CAHPTER 1
