See 'Back Cover Details' for the text I want on the back cover. My book describes how Music Therapy and listening to music will measurably increase older adults' (the parents of the book's target audience) quality-of-life through Music Therapy (I'm a board certified Music Therapist) and also listening to music on their own personal devices (like iPods) with headphones.
Women and men born 1965 to 1996 ("Generation X" and "Millennials") who are interested in ensuring their aging parents have good quality-of-life and ensuring their mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs are met as they age and need more medical assistance... and also want to create more connection and love and memories with their parents through music.
Book cover type
Don’t know yet
Other color requirements
This will eventually be a Kindle eBook, so the front cover design will need to look good small on an Amazon thumbnail. (I am told that white backgrounds are not good.)
I'm really quite open to any inspiration you have for the cover, so I don't want to prescribe ONLY my own ideas since yours may be much better. :) Get creative. Because the purpose of this book is partly to promote my Music Therapy practice, my advisors tell me an author photo should be part of the front cover imagery, but I feel the most important thing is that people can identify themselves (and their parents) in the cover image. No stock images more than $50 please.
What to avoid
No stock images more than $50.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Brett-MusicTherapist collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
