Organization industry



First off, not only will the winning design be the face of a new book but it will also be sold to quite a few investors. So, you're design matters and will be seen. Second, this IS NOT an "ebook." It's a real, hardback book you can hold.

You're free to be as creative as you'd like. Red, white and black stand out and will only help the book get sold, so take that as you will.

Other Details:

• Author is J.D. Seagraves and will be displayed as such.

• Title is: The Essential Guide to Gold Investing

•The book will be 6" x 9" and about 136 pages. Design must be able to be adjusted when final spine width is determined.

• Final high res PDFs exported to PDF must be delivered (one file with back/front cover and spine), and low res individual pages of front cover and back cover at final size, without bleed.

• This is a “work for hire” contest. All rights to the winning design will be transferred to 421 Group, Inc.
