Design brief

Organization name


Description of business

We write books; help clients to polish manuscripts and publish books.

Organization industry



We would like a cover to be designed for a book titled "Like Chiropractic for Elephants." We originally had a cover designed (you can see it on Amazon but searching the title and Dr. Rod Block). It is a book about a doctor who performs chiropractic work on animals to heal them holistically, rather than through drugs and surgery. He is acclaimed in the animal world, and worked with the elephants from the movie, "Water for Elephants."

We want to use the same photo that is on the cover, but the cover needs to look different. The previous cover was boring and very simple. We like simple but there needs to also be something unique to it. The main focus of the cover has to be the picture.

The cover needs to include title and subtitle
Title: Like Chiropractic for Elephants
Subtitle: How Animal Chiropractic Can Change Your (And Your Animal's) World
Author: Dr. Rod Block

This is a hardcover book (regular size 6x9). Please leave a spot for the barcode and ISBN, which we can provide once we select the winner. You will need to make sure there is place for flap copy (I have attached the flap copy text and the picture that needs to be on the cover). Flap copy is when you open a hardcover book and it has the cover on it and on the right there is usually something about the book and the left side has something about the author, etc.
